TYPES OF FIRE SPRINKLER SYSTEMS

Antifreeze Sprinkler System – wet pipe fire sprinkler system that holds a small amount of antifreeze in the pipes to keep the water from freezing. When the sprinkler system activates, some of the antifreeze is discharged along with the water.

Automatic Sprinkler System – fire suppression system that operates automatically in response to the heat from flames. When activated, the fire sprinkler system douses the area in its effect radius with water.

Dry Pipe Fire Sprinkler System – automatic fire sprinkler system that stores water in a central tank as opposed to in the pipes. Slightly increases sprinkler response time and is useful in areas where water stored in pipes can freeze.

Fire Sprinkler System – system of pipes and sprinkler heads installed in a building to control and extinguish fires. There are four basic types of sprinkler systems: wet, dry, deluge and pre–action.

Hydraulically Designed System – calculated sprinkler system where pipe sizes are selected based on pressure loss to prescribe water density in gallons/minute/sq. ft.

Pipe Schedule System – sprinkler system in which pipe sizing is selected from a schedule determined by the occupancy of a building in which a given number of sprinklers are allowed to be supplied from specific pipe sizes.

Sprinkler Head – a sprayer made up of a threaded nipple connecting the head to a water pipe, an activation device such as a fusible link or heat sensitive bulb held in place by a yolk and a deflector that breaks up the water spray into fine droplets.

Sprinkler System – grid of water pipes and sprinkler heads installed in a building to control and extinguish fires.

Wet Pipe Fire Sprinkler System – a standard fire sprinkler system, with water stored directly in the pipes held back by the fire sprinkler heads until a fire starts.
