Five Facts About Fire Sprinklers

Fire sprinklers protect lives and property. To ensure a proper design and effective operation, always work with a trained and competent fire sprinkler system installation contractor like Allstate Sprinklers. From time to time “do-it-yourself” articles or kits appear that encourage consumers to install their own automatic fire sprinkler systems. The American Fire Sprinkler Association “strongly discourages the installation of fire sprinkler systems by people who have not been trained in the proper installation of fire sprinklers. Fire sprinklers should always be installed in accordance with standards of the National Fire Protection Association using approved and/or listed materials.”

  1. Automatic fire sprinklers have been in use in the U.S. since 1874.
  2. Fire sprinklers are widely recognized as the single most effective method for fighting the spread of fires in their early stages – before they can cause severe injury to people and damage to property.
  3. When one fire sprinkler head goes off to fight a fire the entire sprinkler system does NOT activate. Sprinklers react to temperatures in individual rooms.
  4. The chances of a fire sprinkler accidentally going off are extremely remote.
  5. Installation of fire sprinklers can provide discounts on insurance premiums.

An efficient and effective fire sprinkler system uses as much as 90 percent less water than using fire hoses, too. Early intervention in a fire by an expertly installed fire sprinkler system also reduces the amount of damage, debris, and toxins produced in a fire by localizing the fire and its damage.

Fire sprinklers are “first responders” to a fire while it is still small, controlling the spread of deadly heat, flames and toxic smoke – whether or not the occupants have been able to respond to the signaling smoke alarm. Fire sprinklers provide a life-saving cushion of time to escape a fire.
