Fire Sprinkler System FAQs
What causes a fire sprinkler to go off?
Fire sprinklers go off in response to heat, usually tuned somewhere over 150 degrees, and in most cases are triggered individually so that only the single sprinkler that reaches those temperatures goes off instead of all of them, so you don’t soak an entire floor full of valuables for a small fire.
Can smoke set off a fire sprinkler?
No, smoke won’t set off any standard fire sprinkler. A smoke detector is intended to give a warning so you can react to a fire, hopefully while it’s still small. Sprinklers are meant to douse flames, accepting water damage in exchange for safety and possibly limiting property loss; to that end, they only go off if the temperature suggests fire.
How do fire sprinklers work?
Different sprinklers work on different triggers. Some contain small bulbs containing a liquid that reacts to high temperatures; these are often color-coded so you can know how hot the temperature will need to be to trigger a particular sprinkler. Fewer sprinklers essentially use heat-sensitive metal links, not unlike fuses in a fuse box, to trigger. Both mechanisms will only go off in response to high heat indicative of a fire.
How do I know what kind of fire sprinklers I need?
In many cases, your fire sprinkler options will be guided by laws governing your particular building, industry, or specific application. For example, commercial kitchens use a specific type of hood-based targeted suppression system for cooking areas, intended to rapidly and completely stop kitchen fires without constantly being triggered by the normal presence of heat and flame.
If your sprinkler needs are guided by specific guidelines such as in these cases, we’ll be able to help you meet your obligations thoroughly without mistakes. In other cases, you’ll be able to work with our team to figure out what makes the most sense to keep your property and occupants safe while meeting more general-purpose regulations, keeping practicality, safety, and budget in mind.
What sort of schedule should I have for sprinkler inspections?
Different types of sprinkler systems require different schedules for testing and inspections. In fact, some systems have components that will require more frequent testing and inspection, such as systems in which mechanical devices need quarterly inspection, pressure switches that require semiannual checks, and complete system checks that should be performed annually. If you’re not sure, we can help you determine the best schedule for testing each aspect of your system, both for liability and compliance purposes and for general safety.
Is there any fire sprinkler maintenance I should be performing?
In many cases, yes. Most systems have aspects of maintenance, testing, and inspection that you should be performing on a monthly or even weekly basis, to ensure proper function in an emergency. It may seem like unnecessary excess caution in some cases, but a single failure of your sprinkler system can spell the end of your entire property. To learn what sort of maintenance makes sense for your system, look at manufacturer guidelines and speak with your inspector about steps to take.
What types of buildings require fire sprinklers?
While local laws about who has to have fire sprinklers can get surprisingly complicated, the majority of commercial buildings in any locale are going to require fire sprinklers in some amount, especially any new construction or older building being remodeled. You’ll need to look closely at how local laws apply to your building—or work with an experienced team to make that determination for you.
How do you test a fire sprinkler system?
Since you can’t just soak your office space on a whim to test your sprinklers, professional inspections are incredibly important. While your fire sprinkler system can’t be test-fired in any real way, a thorough check of every key component can help determine how your system is likely to perform in the event of a fire, identify any problems that need to be resolved, and suggest improvements.
