A fire sprinkler installation is a necessity to have in every building, warehouse, or any large property. Although often overlooked, not only is it a requirement in California to have a safety precaution in case of a fire outbreak, it’s a duty as a person to keep the safety of others in high regard.
A fire sprinkler installation can be the main difference between saving your property, and the people in it. If you’re a commercial developer, property owner, or a contractor working on a new project, do you know if you have the most trustworthy fire sprinkler installed? Efficient fire sprinkler systems are among the most useful tool in your firefighting arsenal.
We want you to know everything there is to know about how a fire sprinkler works and why it’s critical to have one installed in case of a fire.
How It Works
First, we want to debunk the myth that fire sprinklers are triggered by smoke. False – fire sprinkler systems are triggered by heat. High heat triggers the sprinkler system. Hot air rises, and when a blaze ignites, the air directly above it heats rapidly.
What a fire sprinkler does is douse the fire. Each sprinkler head is attached to a pipe that is connected to a water source outside of the building. Pressurized water from the pipe system is able to flow out easily when activated. It’s important for the water to be pressurized for it to spray outward in an arc to more thoroughly douse a fire and prevent it from reigniting.
How Else Does A Fire Sprinkler Help?
The main concern for a fire sprinkler is to help put out a fire that can dangerously spread. As we stated in the aforementioned, safety is our main concern and should be the first thing on everyone’s mind.
A fire sprinklers can also save your building from water damage as well. The second myth we’re debunking is the myth that once one sprinkler is activated, they’re all activated. This is not true for Aura Fire Safety sprinklers. If that were the case, putting out a fire would simply be trading fire damage for water damage, and that’s not how we operate.
Fortunately, our sprinklers operate individually. Most fires can be extinguished after just one or two sprinklers activate. This allows water damage to be confined to the smallest area possible. Also, since fire sprinklers douse fires by only using a sixth of the water that a fire hose uses, it’s less damaging to your property.
