Title: What Type of Fire Sprinkler System is Right for You?

What Type of Fire Sprinkler System is Right for
The Right Sprinkler System Can Make All the
  • Before you invest in a fire sprinkler system for
    your building, it pays to do your research. If a
    fire does break out, you want to make sure that
    your sprinkler system can quickly and safely
    extinguish it. There are many different sprinkler
    systems on the market today, making it essential
    to consult with a professional like Columbia Fire
    before making any final decisions.
  • At Columbia Fire, we take every variable into
    account in order to find the best sprinkler
    system for you. Before we examine your building,
    however, it might help you to answer a few
    questions to get a better sense of the type of
    system you might need. The following questions
    are meant to get you started.

What are you trying to protect?
  • Obviously, protecting human life is your top
    concern when choosing a sprinkler system. Rest
    assured that all of our sprinkler systems are
    designed to be as gentle as possible on people
    while still putting out the fire. Beyond that,
    you might want to consider what else in the
    building needs protection.
  • For instance, if you have a great deal of
    expensive equipment that would be ruined in the
    event of the sprinklers going off needlessly, it
    might make sense to invest in a pre-action fire
    sprinkler system. This type of sprinkler system
    does not have water flowing through the pipes
    until a fire is detected. Then water will flow to
    the pipes, but it will not discharge until the
    area around a sprinkler head becomes hot enough
    to indicate the presence of a fire.

What are the fire risks?
  • Different working environments carry different
    kinds of risks. As an example, if you are working
    in an area where flammable liquids are present,
    it makes sense to opt for a foam water fire
    sprinkler system. This sort of system can douse
    fires that water alone cannot. On the other hand,
    if you are concerned that a fire may develop and
    spread rapidly, you might choose a deluge fire
    sprinkler system. These types of systems drench
    areas with a high volume of water to douse a fire
    as quickly as possible.

What sort of temperatures will you be dealing
  • Temperature is the main determining factor when
    it comes to choosing between wet and dry fire
    sprinkler systems. If the room or rooms the
    system will be in are always above freezing, then
    it makes sense to choose a wet sprinkler system,
    which always has water flowing through the pipes.
    But if the room or rooms have below-freezing
    temperatures, choose a dry fire sprinkler system,
    which only has water flowing through the pipes
    once a fire is detected.

What do local building codes say?
  • Different communities have different standards
    for fire sprinklers, and it is essential that
    your system meet or exceed those standards. These
    standards are designed not only for your safety,
    but also for the safety of the community.
  • These questions are simply meant to help you
    start thinking about your Fire Sprinkler Systems.
    Before you have your system installed, it will be
    necessary to go over a wide range of other
    variables and requirements. Luckily, the experts
    here at Columbia Fire are more than ready for the
    job. Call us today to start designing your
    sprinkler system.
