One of the most vital forms of fire safety is the Sprinkler Systems which is very crucial in protecting businesses from fire. It is highly encouraged to install fire sprinkler systems in your business for a variety of reasons. But first, it is important to know the definition of a fire sprinkler system.
A fire sprinkler system is an active fire protection method, consisting of a water supply system, providing adequate pressure and flow rate to a water distribution piping system. In other words, a fire sprinkler or sprinkler head is the component of a fire sprinkler system that discharges water when the effects of a fire have been detected, such as when a predetermined temperature has been exceeded.
Based on National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) guidelines, a business that has a fire sprinkler system installed increases the likelihood that injuries to human lives will be avoided. The design code is NFPA 13 which addresses sprinkler system design approaches, system installations and components, which options is to prevent fire deaths and property loss.
Commercial fire sprinkler systems are effective since they typically activate very quickly. This allows them to easily and efficiently control the fire. The deadliest part of a fire is the toxic fumes that are produced.
The smoke from a fire can quickly spread throughout a large business. Fire sprinkler systems have the ability to reduce the amount of smoke produced from a fire. Also uncontrollable fires can spread very rapidly.
This accelerated speed of a fire is slowed down by the presence of a fire sprinkler system. Therefore, a properly maintained and installed fire sprinkler system can give people within your business the time necessary to get out in a safe manner
Protecting Your Business
As business owner, it’s important to protect all the essentials that keep your company afloat.
A commercial fire sprinkler system is able to curb the flames that spark during a fire. When flames do not rise too high, there is less chance that the structure will be demolished as a result.
Fire sprinkler systems use the most minimal amounts of water necessary to turn potentially deadly flames into smaller ones.
Most fire sprinkler systems are designed to only release water from pipes when temperatures rise, such as in a fire situation.
The water is then released in a targeted/ designated area around the fire source. This contains the amount of water released from the system, getting the fire out quickly so you can get your company back up and running as soon as possible.
The Fire Sprinkler System comes in different types. They could be Wet Pipe system, Dry Pipe system, Deluge systems, Foam Water systems, just to mention a few.
Packaged fire pumps: it consists of an Electrical fire pump (duty) and a Diesel engine fire pump (standby). Both work with different modes of operation, but with the same objective. The electrical pump works automatically with power supply by virtue of a pressure switch which automatically recharges the line when there is pressure drop on the Hydrant line and it’s on duty while the diesel engine is operated manually with an ignition key and it’s on standby as a backup for the electrical fire pump.
The HYDRANT PIPELINE is charged at high pressure with water from which the HOSE REEL and the PILLAR HYDRANTS Riser are tapped into. These fire pumps are packed with light indicators panel which is connected to a switch board. The fire pumps are housed in an accessible location for all staff reach.
⦁ The Fire hose Reels will be installed at accessible positions on the building. The Hydrant Risers would be positioned around car parks, road intervals and along the perimeter fence that would be easily accessible to Fire Service Men for quick fire hose connections to municipal water supply.
⦁ The pumps are adequately complimented by a dedicated water storage tank, ground or overhead tank.
