What is Fire Sprinkler System?
A fire sprinkler system is an active fire
protection method, consisting of a water supply
system, providing adequate pressure and flowrate
to a water distribution piping system, onto which
fire sprinklers are connected. It was used only
in factories and large commercial buildings in
past. In recent times, systems for homes and
small buildings are available at a cost-effective
price. Sprinkler systems save lives in the event
of a fire. Along with other active and passive
fire protection measures, a well-maintained fire
sprinkler system installation can help suppress
smoke and flames, and lessen the spread of the
fire, reducing damages and giving everyone time
to exit the building safely while fire services
arrive.

Types of Fire Sprinkler System
  • There are four main types of commercial fire
    sprinkler services, each adapted to the needs of
    various facilities to maximize response time and
    ensure the protection of employees and assets.

Wet Pipe System
  • Wet sprinkler systemsor traditional fire
    sprinklersare the most common across residential
    and commercial buildings. When a fire begins, the
    heat activates the nearest sprinkler head,
    releasing pressurized water stored in the pipes.
    Each sprinkler head is activated independently,
    reducing water damages in the event of a false
    alarm. Wet pipe systems are an inexpensive,
    low-maintenance option appropriate for offices,
    schools, and commercial properties.

6

Dry Pipe System
  • As opposed to wet pipe systems, dry pipe systems
    do not store water in their pipes. Instead, they
    are filled with pressurized air or nitrogen,
    which is released if a fire activates the valves
    in the sprinkler head. The pipes then fill with
    water and discharge it over the smoke or flames.
    While this system is more complex and costly than
    a wet pipe system, it is the most appropriate for
    cold climates where there is a high risk of
    frozen pipes halting an emergency fire response.

7

Pre-Action System
  • Pre-action systems are another form of dry pipe
    sprinkler, but require a two-step activation.
    When heat or smoke is detected, the pre-action
    valve will open and allow water into the pipes.
    Then, sprinkler heads can be individually
    activated to release water over the fire. This
    two-step process enables facilities to shut off
    the system in case of a false alarm, protecting
    their assets from water damage. Pre-action
    systems are especially useful in places where
    accidental discharge could lead to irreparable
    damages, such as museums, libraries, and data
    centers.

8

Deluge System
  • Deluge sprinkler systems are another version of a
    dry pipe system. However, as opposed to all
    previous options, the sprinkler heads in this
    system are always open. They do not have a
    heat-sensing element in the sprinkler head
    itself, and require an external smoke or heat
    sensor to activate. Once heat is detected, water
    fills the pipes and is released to all open
    sprinkler heads, creating a flooding effect
    across the entire area. This system is most often
    used in industries with flammable liquids that
    are likely to spread rapidly.
