Automatic sprinklers offer a proven method of providing life and property protection. However, there are many myths and misconceptions about how they actually work. Below are some answers to common questions.
Sprinkler systems can be connected to an alarm monitoring company, which will contact the fire service immediately, should the alarm go off. On arrival, the fire service will take action to minimise any water damage.
The low whole-life costs of a fire sprinkler system make investment attractive. Fire sprinkler systems will last the lifetime of a building without major replacement or refurbishment. The industry claims a service life of around 40 years, but it is well known that there are many sprinkler systems from the 1930s which are still operational.
