SPRINKLER SYSTEMS

A recently published report on protection by sprinkler systems in multi-level residential buildings studied almost 2,000 fires that occurred between 2006 and 2011 in British Columbia.

The odds of death in an unsprinklered building fire were found to be 11.9 times greater than in buildings protected by sprinklers. Damages were reduced by almost $30,000 per fire as a result of those suppression solutions. In almost a quarter of cases where sprinklers were present, fires never extended beyond the floor of origin and 96.2% of those were contained to the room of origin.

The findings of another 4-year study by the US National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) determined that property damage in hotel fires was 78% less in structures with sprinklers.

Our dedicated fire sprinkler system division offers complete solutions from conception, design and installation by Master Pipefitters through to inspection and maintenance. Our modern, expertly installed systems automatically detect and then control, suppress or extinguish fires according to your systems goals, its sprinkler heads and nozzles that are capable of spraying in various directions and patterns.

Contrary to what you see in the movies, a localized fire will not trigger your entire sprinkler system. The majority of automatic fire sprinklers sense fire and operate individually. At Priority Fire Equipment, we can help you to plan, position and install individual sprinklers to optimally contain threats, maximize protection and minimize damage.
