Fire Sprinkler Systems

Fire Sprinkler System – There are four different types that we can install or repair for you. They are the Wet Pipe Sprinkler System,  Dry Pipe Sprinkler System, Pre-Action Sprinkler System, and the Deluge Fire Sprinkler System.  These systems will help to prevent flames from spreading and reduce fire damage.   Below we will briefly explain how these systems are different in applications and activation.

Wet Pipe Sprinkler Head

Wet Pipe Fire Sprinkler System

The Wet Pipe Fire Sprinkler System pipes contain water and are the most common type of fire sprinkler systems.  With water in the pipes system, facilities must maintain a temperature of at least 40 degrees.  This prevents the water in the pipes from freezing.  The process to activate a wet pipe fire sprinkler is easy.  When a fire sprinkler element reaches a designated temperature, it breaks and releases the water.  Wet pipe fire sprinkler systems are found in schools, office buildings, and high-rise building with ordinary hazards.

Dry Pipe Sprinkler Head

Dry Pipe Fire Sprinkler System

The Dry Pipe Fire Sprinkler System has pipes that are filled with nitrogen or pressurized air.  The air pressure holds a dry pipe valve closed and prevents water from entering the system.  When a fire sprinkler detects a sudden temperature increase it will activate and the air pressure drops in the system.  When this happens it will cause the dry pipe valve to open and floods water into the dry pipe fire sprinkler system.  Once activated, the fire sprinkler discharges the water.  The dry pipe fire sprinkler contains no water, they’re ideal in areas subject to freezing temperatures.  Unheated warehouses, parking garages, and attic spaces are good for this type of fire protection system.

Pre-Action Fire Sprinkler Head

Pre-Action Fire Sprinkler System

The Pre-Action Fire Sprinkler System contains pressurized air or nitrogen instead of water.  The activating of the Pre-Action system is a two-step process.  First a heat or smoke detector must detect a fire which then sends a signal to open the pre-action valve. This fills the system with water.  Next a fire sprinkler head must detect an increased temperature to indicate a fire.  Once, the fire sprinkler opens water immediately pours onto the fire.  Pre-Action fire sprinklers two-step  activation process helps prevent accidental system activations.  This makes these types of fire sprinkler systems ideal for applications such as museums, server rooms, libraries and data farms.

Deluge Fire Sprinkler Head

Deluge Fire Sprinkler System

The Deluge Fire Sprinkler System is for high hazard facilities.  The Deluge Fire Sprinkler System has open sprinkler heads which can discharge water quickly.  These Sprinkler Heads are open all the time and activate all at one.  These systems also contain no water nor pressurized air.  Once the heat or smoke detector detect heat and smoke, the deluge valve opens and sends water to all the fire sprinklers heads all at once.  When highly combustible materials catches on fire the flames can grow and spread quickly. That’s why facilities like aircraft hangers, industrial plants and manufacturing companies need a fast-acting deluge fire sprinkler system.
