Fire sprinkler systems play a vital role in the event of a fire. They save lives and properties by suppressing smoke and flames. Furthermore, one good thing fire sprinklers do is lessen the spread of the fire which in any case gives people more time to exit the premises. At Prana FM we supply well-maintained fire sprinkler systems to our clients that aim to increase the chances of saving lives.
What are the 5 Types of Sprinkler Systems?
Wet Pipe System
This type of sprinkler is your traditional fire sprinkler system that automatically reacts to heat temperatures higher than their temperature rating by releasing a flow of water from the sprinkler.
These are designed especially for use in locations where accidental activations are undesired. These can be museums with rare artworks, manuscripts, or books that can get seriously damaged in the case of a fire or water submersion.
It can only be used in spaces whereby the regular temperature may be cold enough to freeze the water in a wet pipe system and rendering the system inoperable. Water is not present in the system’s piping until the system operates.
Foam Water System
These systems discharge a mixture of water and low expansion foam concentration resulting in a foam spray from the sprinkler.
This system has open sprinklers and provides a simultaneous application of water over the entire hazard.
What are the benefits of commercial fire sprinkler system service?
- React quicker and automatic in the event of a fire – because they are automatic, there’s no need to navigate them.
- Reduce the possibility of damage to your property – the reason the sprinkler systems reduce the risk of damage is because of the minimum amount of water. Basically, it means the fire sprinkler system goes off and prevents damage to the property.
- Alert from the water flow alarms installed – when the water flow alarm goes off, it makes sound and alerts occupants as well as offsite monitoring services
