Types of Fire Sprinkler Systems
When it comes to picking the fire sprinkler system for your building, there are many options to choose from. Depending on the size and scale of your property, there are different levels of fire protection that will suit your space.
Wet Pipe Sprinkler Systems
Known for providing a standard level of fire protection, this system is often found in standard office buildings. By far the most popular type of fire sprinkler system, wet pipe fire sprinklers activate instantly after the fire sprinkler heads open. The water in this system is pressurized throughout the sprinkler pipes and released by the heat-activated sprinkler heads.
Dry Pipe Sprinkler Systems
Instead of pressurized water, dry pipe sprinklers are filled with pressurized air or nitrogen gas. Though it does take a bit longer for the water to discharge, this type of system is advantageous in buildings where the water could freeze if left in the pipes. Less common than wet pipe sprinkler systems, dry pipe sprinklers are more expensive—and more complicated! However, if you are looking for the perfect system for your unheated building, refrigerated cooler, or parking garage, a dry pipe sprinkler system may be perfect for you.
Deluge Fire Sprinkler Systems
Similar to a wet pipe fire sprinkler system, a deluge fire sprinkler system is connected to a valve of water. The big difference? Deluge fire sprinkler heads are open at all times. Instead of being activated by heat, this system is operated by a fire alarm that releases the water from the valve when triggered.
Once the valve opens, it has to be shut off manually. Because of this, deluge fire sprinklers are not typical for offices due to the potential water damage! This type of system is often used in a place where rapid fire spread is a concern, such as high-rise windows, warehouse bay entries, and other locations where fire may sweep quickly.
Pre-Action Fire Sprinkler Systems
In this system, water is not stored in the pipes unless a fire detection device detects a fire. Here, the valve would open after being activated by the detection device, eventually opening the heads and releasing the water. A pre-action fire system is perfect for areas that are subject to serious water damage in the event of an accidental sprinkler activation.
