Fire Sprinklers – Myths & Facts

Automatic fire sprinklers have been used in the U.S. since 1874. Fire sprinklers are widely recognized as the single most effective method for fighting the spread of fires in their early stages. Fire can become deadly in three minutes, making the elderly and disabled particularly at risk of injury or death. Fire sprinklers allow them more time to evacuate. Sprinklers reduce the average property loss by 71% per fire.  

In some popular movies, a character may escape a bad situation by putting a flame under a single sprinkler head, and the flame would ignite the entire fire sprinkler system in the room or a building. This is pure fiction.  In the real world, when one fire sprinkler head goes off due to a flame under it, the entire sprinkler system does NOT activate.  Sprinklers react to temperature in individual rooms. Only the fire sprinkler nearest the fire will activate. Fire sprinklers do not go off all at the same time, no matter what you see in the movies.

Here are some of the other myths about fire sprinklers and the facts:

  • Myth 1: Smoke can set off fire sprinklers. Fact: Only high heat can set them off.
  • Myth 2: Fire sprinklers often leak or activate accidentally. Fact: Sprinklers accidentally going off are extremely rare.
  • Myth 3: Fire sprinklers are big, bulky, and too ugly to install in a building. Fact: They can be made invisible.

Here are some surprising facts about fire sprinklers:

  • Fire sprinklers can limit damage to a single room.
  • Fire sprinklers can save lives by dramatically reducing the heat, flames, and smoke produced in a fire.
  • Sprinklers save water because they use a lot less water than fire hoses.
  • Installing fire sprinklers can provide discounts on insurance premiums.
  • Fire sprinklers are very low maintenance.

Stay safe, and if you have questions about your sprinkler system, we are here to help.

Important Winter System Maintenance

Wet Sprinkler Systems – Schedule your wet sprinkler inspection to ensure it is at a minimum of 40⁰F or your antifreeze loop is maintained at the proper level per code requirements.

Dry Sprinkler Systems – Auxiliary drains on your system must be drained before the onset of freezing weather conditions and thereafter as needed.

Hydrants – Let us maintain your hydrants so water doesn’t freeze inside them and prevent proper use during an emergency.

Fire Pumps – Since fire pumps aid in providing the proper water pressure and volume for your sprinkler system, get them inspected before the temperature drops.

 

 

Consistent cold temperatures are right around the corner, so schedule your inspections today.
