Choosing The Right Fire Sprinkler System

When you hear the term “fire sprinklers” chances are you think of a sprinkler head that shoots out water when there’s a fire. Pretty simple, right? While this assumption is somewhat correct, there are many different types of sprinkler systems. The end goal (extinguishing fires) is the same for all fire sprinkler systems, but the process of how it is done can vary based on the type of system you use. 

For instance, if you need a sprinkler system in a place where water may freeze in the pipes (like a parking garage) you would need a dry sprinkler system to ensure safety. Choosing the correct fire sprinkler systems can seem a little overwhelming, but we have put together an easy guide to help you better understand your options. If you still aren’t sure what you’re looking for, feel free to give us a call for a free consultation!

Fire Sprinkler Systems Kane Fire Protection

Different Fire Sprinkler Systems

Wet Sprinkler System

Wet pipe sprinklers utilize automatic sprinkler heads that are attached to a piping system connected to a water supply. When the sprinkler system is activated by the heat of a fire, water is released from the sprinkler heads.

Dry Sprinkler System

Dry pipe sprinklers utilize automatic sprinkler heads that are attached to a piping system connected to an air or nitrogen supply. When the sprinkler system is activated by the heat of a fire, the air pressure is released from the valve allowing water to enter the sprinkler heads.

Deluge Sprinkler System

Deluge sprinklers utilize open sprinkler heads that are attached to a deluge piping system connected to a water supply. When the sprinkler system is activated by the heat of a fire, water is released from all of the sprinkler heads in the detection area at high pressures.

Pre-Action Sprinkler System

Pre-action sprinklers utilize closed sprinkler heads that are attached to a pre-action valve connected to a water supply. When a fire detector is activated, water will enter the system, but the sprinkler heads will not open until they detect heat.

Chemical Suppression System

Chemical fire suppression systems are primarily used in industrial and manufacturing facilities or anywhere where highly flammable materials are present. The chemicals released cover any fuel and remove oxygen from the atmosphere, putting out the fire and minimizing costly damage.
