  • Historic buildings will average $10 per square foot of coverage.

Most sprinkler systems activate when the temperature at the hand reaches 57℃ or higher. The liquid-filled glass bulb on the sprinkler head grows when the temperature reaches the design limit, and the expansion causes the bulb to break, permitting water to enter the sprinkler and spray the flames. The heat requirement means that smoke will not trigger a sprinkler head. That means smoke and odors will not set the system off by themselves.

Why are fire sprinkler systems so useful?

The price of a sprinkler system compared to the benefits it provides is highly justified. It is on the job 24/7. No management team can monitor every area of the building all the time. The great thing about the system is that it can detect fires in areas where people rarely go. Being able to detect the fire immediately means potentially limiting damage costs and giving people enough time to exit the building.

Apart from the benefits mentioned above, these systems also protect your investment. Through a survey, it has been found that buildings with fire sprinkler systems suffer 50% less property damage. In case of a fire, sprinkler systems can detect it early on to protect the building and eliminate further damage.

Do these systems cause property damage?

There is a misconception among people that sprinkler systems can activate aimlessly without fire occurring and causing property damage. The probability of that happening is 1 in 16 million. When an actual fire emergency is detected, only one or two sprinklers are normally required to destroy the flames. A single sprinkler being brought to life will not set the others off as they are all heat sensitive.

Additional equipment to compliment a fire sprinkler system:

Fire sprinkler systems themselves are amazing at protecting the property by reducing the spread of fire, but they are unproductive when it comes to containing the smoke that results from the fire. These systems cause additional smoke once the inflamed material starts to smolder. There are smoke and fire containment systems that will work together with sprinkler systems to make sure that building occupants have sufficient time to escape.
