What types of Fire Protection Systems are most common?

A. Wet Fire Sprinkler Systems:

  • The wet-pipe system employs automatic sprinklers attached to a piping system connected to a water supply.
  • The water discharges immediately from the sprinklers activated by fire.

B. Dry Pipe Systems:

  • The dry-pipe system employs automatic sprinklers attached to a piping system containing air or nitrogen under pressure.
  • When released, the water flows into the piping system and discharges only from those sprinklers which have been activated by the fire.
  • Dry-pipe systems are installed in lieu of wet-pipe systems where piping is subject to freezing.

C. Pre-Action Systems:

  • Pre-action sprinkler systems are specialized for use in locations where accidental activation is undesired, such as a museum with rare artwork, manuscripts, or books and Data Centers, for protection of computer equipment from accidental water discharge.
  • In a pre-action system, the action of a heat-responsive device releases a pre-action valve, the water fills the piping system, and an alarm is given in advance of the activation of sprinklers.

How do sprinklers work?

Sprinkler operation is as follows:

  • Fire sprinklers are the most visible part of a fire sprinkler system – an integrated array of pumps, piping and detection devices. Pipes hook into your building’s water supply which is pushed through pumping or pressurization to upper floors in multi-level structures.
  • Sprinkler heads are the distribution devices that spray water over a fire.
  • Sprinklers are activated by high heat, usually between 165-175°F. When they sense temperatures in that range, they release water over the hot area, dousing the fire.

What are the benefits of an automatic fire sprinkler system?

Automatic sprinkler systems are able to disperse water evenly over a pre-determined area and efficiently extinguish fires when necessary.
