    • 16 What is an automatic fire sprinkler system?

      The automatic fire sprinkler system is the most widely used fire protection system today. The whole philosophy of sprinklers is based upon the premise of applying the right amount of water (as little as possible) in the right place (the seat of the fire) at the right time (as quickly as possible). Many ordinary hazard systems used to be fed directly from the town's mains, but increasingly a water tank and pumps are being installed to guarantee adequate water flow and pressure.

      Types of fire sprinkler systems:  WET   DRY   PRE-ACTION   DELUGE

    • 17 What is a WET fire sprinkler system?

      The fire sprinkler system is constantly charged with water under pressure, which holds the fire sprinkler valve in the closed position. When a fire sprinkler head is activated water instantly flows on to the fire.

      A wet fire sprinkler system is commonly installed in areas where the ambient temperature is above 32 degrees F.

    • 18 What is a DRY fire sprinkler system?

      Used where a frost risk may arise, the dry fire sprinkler system is constantly charged with compressed air, which holds the fire sprinkler valve in closed position. When a fire sprinkler head is activated, the air pressure is lost, the valve opens and water flows into the system and on to the fire.

      A dry fire sprinkler system is commonly installed in areas where the ambient temperature is at or below 32 degrees F.

    • 19 What is a PRE-ACTION fire sprinkler system?

      A combination of an electrical/mechanical detection system, charged with compressed air, sprinkler pipes are only filled with water upon electrical detection to avoid accidental water damage.

      A pre-action fire sprinkler system is commonly installed in high-risk areas such as data processing facilities or cold storage warehouses.

    • 20 What is an automatic fire sprinkler system?

      A combination of an electrical/mechanical detection system, fire sprinkler heads are open and the pipe is not pressurized. When the detection system is activated water discharges through all of the sprinkler heads in the system.

      A deluge fire sprinkler system is commonly installed in high-risk areas such as power plants, aircraft hangars, and chemical storage or processing facilities.

    • 21 Will smoke set off the sprinkler system?

      Absolutely not. It takes actual heat to set off a sprinkler.

    • 22 Do sprinklers go off accidentally?

      It is possible for a sprinkler to discharge accidentally, but this is an extremely rare occurrence in systems which are properly maintained. Records indicate that only 1 in 16,000,000 sprinklers per year will open accidentally.

    • 23 Do fire sprinklers cause widespread water damage?

      Fire department hoses typically discharge ten to a hundred times more water than that discharged by sprinklers. Since only the sprinkler closest to the fire is activated, the total amount of water is limited. Fire damage is also limited; most fires are put out quickly, by only a few sprinklers, in areas with a fully functional sprinkler system.

    • 24 How can I maintain my sprinkler system?

      Most importantly, have your system periodically inspected by a professional. This will catch any problems before they become major. In addition, maintenance will usually lower insurance premiums.

      Do:

      1. Test the system monthly by opening the test valve and listening for an alarm bell.
      2. Know the location of the system shutoff valve.
      3. Make sure the system control valve is always open.
      4. Have your system reevaluated for needed upgrades when:

      » Water supply changes--addition or change of backlow preventer or water meter, or reduction of public water supply.
      » Building occupancy or use changes.
      » Building changes (walls, partitions, additions).

      5. Leave the building and contact the fire department when any activation of the system occurs, even if the fire has apparently been extinguished.

      Don't:

      1. Paint the sprinklers.
      2. Damage sprinklers (report any damage immediately).
      3. Hang objects from any part of the system.
      4. Obstruct of cover the sprinklers.

    • 25 When one sprinkler activates, do they all activate?

      No. Each sprinkler head works independently from the others and is activated by a heat only sensitive mechanism. Only the sprinkler over the fire will activate. Should the fire continue to spread, then and only then will another sprinkler activate. In most home fires, only one or two sprinklers are actually triggered. Burnt toast or smoke will not activate a sprinkler, only heat in excess of approximately 68oC/155oF.
