Fire Sprinklers: What To Know For Your Business

When selecting a fire sprinkler system for your Washington, UT, business it’s important to know a few things about the systems available in order to select the best fir. From different sprinkler styles, to what to do if they activate, here are some things you may want to know.

1. The Different Types

There are several different types of fire suppression sprinklers, each designed to work in a different way. This means that you should be able to choose a system that works well with your business type, size, and location. Most systems utilize water stored inside a pressurized pipe, but others may use a foam or chemical suppressant instead. Businesses that use a lot of machinery or electronic equipment may decide to use a non-water based system to lessen the water damage risk to these items. A professional can help you choose the best system for your company.

2. How They Work

Contrary to popular belief, most fire sprinkler systems do now drown the entire building in water when they are activated. Most systems either have a melt-able seal or a pressure activated bulb at the end of each sprinkler nozzle. When the temperature reaches a high enough degree the protective seal of the head melts or breaks, depending on the type, and water is released from the nozzle. This means only the area in the at risk area over the fire will activate.

3. What To Do if They Activate

If there is a fire and the sprinkler system activates then it’s best to contact a fire damage restoration service. These professionals can help with both the fire sprinkler cleanup as well as repair any fire damage. With a little time and work they can have your business looking “Like it never even happened.”

When selecting a fire sprinkler system for your company, consider the best style and suppression liquid for your business's type and needs. It’s also important to understand how your chosen system will activate in order to help suppress the fire. Remember, if it does activate, a restoration service can help with any cleanup and repairs once the fire is out.
