How Fire Sprinkler Systems Work
A fire sprinkler system is a network of piping charged with water either from a water main or fire pump and tank. Fire sprinkler heads are connected to the pipework in the areas to be protected.
Types of Fire Sprinkler Heads
There are basically two types of fire sprinkler head, pendant or concealed, either can be wall or ceiling mounted.
Fire Sprinkler System Pipework
CPVC is an engineered thermoplastic piping it does not support fire, and will only char when subjected to flame. In fire conditions, it performs superbly, and it has a twenty year proven track record for this application.
Fire Pump Sets and System Valve Groups
Supplied pump sets and valve groups are bespoke. This ensures that each fire sprinkler system has a pump set or valve group designed and built for its particular requirements.
All components are approved and tested and carry manufacturer’s warranty. Once assembled, they are fully tested in our workshop before being taken to the site.
Preventing Frost Issues for Fire Sprinkler Systems
Fire sprinklers are generally installed within the heated envelope of a building and should not require frost protection.
Frost protection will be required for pipe work, fittings and pump sets when they are likely to be exposed to temperatures below freezing, this may be an outhouse, garage, porch, sheds and even loft spaces.
