Types of fire sprinkler systems

(http://www.bafsa.org.uk)

  • Wet Pipe

These are the most common systems – commonly used in buildings where there is no danger of freezing. Water is available in the pipes above the sprinkler heads which guarantees a very quick reaction time in the event of a fire. Wet pipe sprinkler systems are required for multi-storey or high-rise buildings and for life safety.

  • Alternate

Alternate Sprinkler system in the summer the pipes are full of water, these are drained down and replaced with air (compressed air) for the winter.

  • Dry pipe

Sprinkler system is filled with compressed air, once a fire is detected and the sprinkler head opens the air pressure drops opening the valve allowing water to flow into the pipework and extinguish the fire.

  • Pre-action

Similar to dry pipe, the pipework is filled with air, water is released through the system when the detector sensors smoke. (These are common in buildings where it is not suitable to have pipework full of water permanently)

Types of fire sprinkler tanks

  • Single supply tank

A Water storage tank which shall be designed and protected against corrosion such that the need for emptying the tank for maintenance is reduced to a period of not less than 3 years (maintenance check max. every 3 years).

  • Superior supply tank

A Water storage tank which shall be designed and protected against corrosion such that the need for emptying the tank for maintenance is reduced to a period of not less than 10 years (maintenance check max. every 10 years).

  • A Life Safety System

A ‘term applied to sprinkler systems forming an integral part of measures required for the protection of life, especially where evacuating the building depends on the performance of the sprinkler system and sprinklers are required expressly for life safety purposes’. A key feature of the system is that during servicing the sprinkler installation shall be fully operational in all aspect.
We offer both superior and life safety, because of the nature and quality of our product single supply isn’t applicable.
