It’s no secret that fires are dangerous phenomena, but it’s very likely that you underestimate the speed and ferocity with which they develop. In fact, it can take only a few minutes for a spark to grow into a huge inferno. When you consider that many house fires occur at night when everyone is asleep, you can easily see how major damage may result even before the fire department is able to arrive on the scene. The good news, however, is that you can effectively protect your family and your property from this threat by installing a fire sprinkler system.
How do water sprinklers work? A network of pipes installed inside the wall or ceiling holds water ready for immediate release when needed. The pipe system includes a series of fire sprinklers at regular intervals that are outfitted with heat-sensitive triggers. In the event of fire, heat from the flames sets off the triggers, which promptly release the water in a wide spray.
It’s important to point out that fire sprinkler systems are designed to activate only in the areas that are directly affected by the flame; this minimizes water damage to your home. In addition, these systems cannot be accidentally activated by smoke—there’s no danger that an overcooked roast will douse the room in water.
Best of all, setting up reliable fire sprinklers in your home or building is easy. The system can be installed inside walls and ceilings without interfering with existing plumbing apparatus. It’s a convenient, cost-effective way to safeguard your home or business from an all-too-common threat that takes a massive toll in lives and property damage every year.
