Sprinklers, and other Automatic Fire Suppression Systems can save lives, homes, and businesses. They provide protection from fire damage and, most importantly, they give people a greater chance of getting out if there is a fire. By reducing the damage and severity of a fire, they can also save money too.
Who are they good for?
Everybody. Though there are some organisations, groups and property types who could particularly benefit from sprinkler installation. These include:
- Care homes or places where people with any mobility issues live
- Heritage buildings
- Residential properties over 18m in height – including student accommodation
- Hotels, B&Bs and hostels
- Large warehouses
- Firefighters – During search and rescue operations, sprinklers significantly reduce the risks to firefighters!
How Do Sprinklers Work?
Sprinklers react to heat. When the temperature in a room fitted with a sprinkler reaches 60 – 70 degrees, the sprinkler will spray water across the room and suppress the fire that has caused the rise in temperature.
Did you know?
Sprinklers are triggered one by one where the rise in temperature occurs – they don’t all go off together throughout a building like in the movies!
