Fire Sprinklers

The first automatic fire sprinkler system was created and installed by an American named Henry S. Parmalee in 1874. This was a response to exorbitant insurance rates and widespread industrial fires. Claim for invention however, can be traced back to British inventor Sir William Congreve. In 1812 Congreve patented a manual system using perforated pipes along a ceiling linked to a valve outside the building to be released in the event of a fire.

Fast forward nearly 200 years and the fire sprinkler is saving lives throughout the world on a daily basis. The primary reason the fire sprinkler has been so successful is that no other system has been able to come close to its 99.7% fire extinguishment rate. With the UK having experienced 328 fatalities as a direct result of fire from April 2009 to March 2010, it goes without saying that sprinklers should be at the forefront of everyone’s mind when considering fire safety. It is tragic to consider that a large percentage of those 328 people might well have been saved had a fire sprinkler installation been present in buildings where they became trapped.

Fire Sprinkler Efficiency

Fire sprinklers provide automatic protection for both residential and commercial premises. When a fire sprinkler sensor detects a ceiling temperature of around 150 degrees, the sprinkler is activated and the fire attacked with a forceful spread of water. Modern day fire sprinkler installation is highly efficient in that only sprinklers within certain proximity of the fire will activate, not the entire system as some people misperceive. This minimises water damage to the property and distributes less water than the hoses of the fire service. Fire sprinklers also suppress dangerous smoke particles containing carbon monoxide and hydrogen cyanide. Smoke inhalation is the most common injury from fire, one that often causes long term respiratory problems and potential brain damage. It is common for occupants to escape the flames of a fire, only to be knocked unconscious by smoke inhalation whilst trying to exit the building.

Fire Sprinkler Installation

Fire sprinklers are extremely popular, particularly in new build homes, new apartment blocks and new commercial buildings. Unfortunately however, older homes and commercial premises are neglected because people generally don’t realise that it is possible to install fire sprinklers with minimum disruption to daily routine. At FireFighter 24/7 we have been conducting fire sprinkler installation work for over 15 years. We offer cost-effective fire sprinkler installations by using roll grooved technology instead of threaded parts; our materials are therefore less expensive and our labour time also reduced. We make fire sprinklers affordable for our customers without compromising on quality or safety. We offer a minimum 2-year guarantee on all parts and carry out regular servicing to ensure your system is working at optimum performance at all times.
