Fire Sprinkler Systems Explained

Industrial, residential and commercial fires are more common than people realise. They can be caused by a number of factors from faulty wiring and candles to overloaded extension cables and just a minutes inattention from a stove burner.

Over the course of a single day the statistics below, make for some pretty shocking reading. What’s worse is in the majority of cases these emergencies will be called to homes which have no domestic sprinkler system installed.

  • 44 people will be injured as a result of fire
  • 2 people will die as a result of fire
  • The fire brigade will respond to a total of 2,880 fire alarm calls.

While every home and business owner who has fire alarms installed in their property may be thinking this is enough to keep them safe, it simply isn’t. Fire sprinkler systems work better than any other fire protection system on the market today, which makes their installation essential.

While fire alarms do nothing to control a fire, a domestic sprinkler can be activated within seconds of a fire starting, which means it is smothered by water from the sprinkler system, leaving it little time to get out of control.

It’s important to note that the majority of fire related injuries and deaths in the UK every year are as a result of smoke inhalation. Domestic sprinklers are the only preventative fire safety equipment available that cut through the smoke and poisonous gasses before they have a chance to rise. A smoke alarm in comparison makes occupants aware of the fire, but does nothing to control or tame it. If the device fails to wake sleeping occupants of the property immediately, by the time it has the fire is often out of control and people in the building are breathing in smoke and harmful gasses.


How Do Fire Sprinkler Systems Work?

Commercial and domestic sprinkler systems are connected to a water supply and positioned on ceilings and walls within a property. The fire sprinkler themselves are fitted with a gas bulb that reacts to hot air and gasses by expanding and eventually breaking the bulb. At this point the fire sprinkler systems are activated and water droplets are released which are large and heavy enough to control the core of the fire without evaporating.


Misconceptions

Many property owners are reluctant to consider commercial and domestic sprinkler systems for fear of the water damage it may cause to their properties due to a false alarm. It’s incorrect to believe that the whole sprinkler system will activate if heat is detected, the truth is the majority of sprinklers are designed to be activated individually, which means they will only all go off if they are all activated by severe heat.

While fire alarms often go off and sound accidentally for a number of reasons, it’s virtually impossible for this to happen with a fire sprinkler system as it’s activated by concentrated heat only, which can only be produced by fire.


How Much Water Does A Domestic Sprinkler System Use?

The simple answer is a lot less water than the fire brigade use to control and put fire out. Many property owners are under the impression a sprinkler needs and uses a large water supply, which is incorrect.
