Every component of your fire response system is essential to saving lives. Fire sprinkler systems often serve as the first line of defense against smoke and fires, giving people more time to safely escape any imminent danger and follow the approved evacuation plan to safety. Fire sprinklers are the most commonly used fire protection system for a reason because they are so customizable and efficient. Here are the reasons why fire sprinkler systems are so important.
The Purpose of Fire Sprinkler Systems
The purpose of the fire sprinkler system is simple: to provide an appropriate amount of water to extinguish fires before they get the opportunity to grow and spread throughout the room. There are also various types of sprinkler systems that will provide the right kind of protection for the specific kind of setting in which they are installed. The types of fire sprinkler systems include wet pipe, dry pipe, deluge, and preaction fire sprinkler systems.
Number of Sprinklers
Fire sprinklers are not designed to move around in a given space. Therefore, it’s important to install the appropriate number of sprinklers to cover your area. In commercial spaces, there should be sprinklers for each room regardless of its purpose or the way it’s used. The causes of fires can be diverse and unpredictable. Therefore, each area needs to be covered and protected by sprinkler heads. One or two sprinkler heads are usually enough to put out a fire, and they should be located on each floor in the building.
Efficiency and Function
Fire Sprinklers that are well maintained and inspected annually have been responsible for saving many lives. Because they are so efficient at stopping fires before they spread and cause extensive damage and injuries, the fires are stopped before they grow. In addition, not only are they used in commercial office spaces, but they are also used in restaurant eating areas, commercial kitchens, warehouses and industrial settings, multi-family homes, and single-family residences.
