Fire sprinkler systems have a proven track record of reliability when it comes to the protection of life and property. When fire sprinkler systems are installed and maintained according to NFPA Standards, they are often effective at controlling and even extinguishing a fire in an emergency. We at Fire Safety First provide you with peace of mind by ensuring your fire sprinkler system is ready and in satisfactory operating condition to protect lives and property from fire.
When you contact Fire Safety First, our customer support specialists will discuss your current fire protection system, our recommendations on what fire sprinkler system best suits your property, the maintenance and testing schedule for that system, as well as any repairs that may need to be performed.
Although fire sprinklers are common in today’s buildings, most people are unaware of how they operate. When a fire starts and heat rises to the fire sprinklers on the ceiling, the fire sprinkler’s link either melts away or the glass bulb breaks. Those fusible links or glass bulbs are holding back the water supply. When they are removed, the fire sprinkler is activated and water sprays out directly over the fire, suppressing it by cooling the ceiling and controlling its spread to other areas. Today, fire sprinkler systems come in a variety of designs to specifically operate in different applications.
The most common fire sprinkler system found in today’s buildings are wet pipe fire sprinklers. These automatic fire protection systems do not require human interaction to operate in an emergency. Wet pipe fire sprinklers have a constant water supply that fills all the fire sprinkler piping with water to ensure that when water is needed, it gets to the fire as quickly as possible.
Each fire sprinkler has a fusible link or glass bulb element that is designed to melt or break away at a certain temperature. Once this element heats to its rated temperature and breaks away, the fire sprinkler plug is released, and the sprinkler activates and sprays water onto the fire below. Not all sprinklers in a wet pipe fire sprinkler system activate as commonly depicted in movies and TV; only the sprinklers closest to the fire activate, thereby efficiently suppressing the fire with the least amount of water.
Wet Pipe Fire Sprinkler systems activate automatically and require manual intervention to be shut down.
