Common Fire Protection Systems

Wet Fire Sprinkler Systems

– The wet-pipe system employs automatic sprinklers attached to a piping system connected to a water supply. The water discharges immediately from sprinklers opened by a fire. Only those sprinklers which have been operated by heat over the fire will discharge water.

Dry Pipe Systems

– The dry-pipe system employs automatic sprinklers attached to a piping system containing air or nitrogen under pressure. When released, the water flows into the piping system and discharges only from those sprinklers which have been operated by the fire. Dry-pipe systems are installed in lieu of wet-pipe systems where piping is subject to freezing.

Special Hazard Fire Protection Systems

– Special systems are designed to detect and extinguish fires in locations where standard suppression systems are not appropriate or adequate.
Dry Chemical Fire Suppression Systems
– Pressured dry chemicals, used in conjunction with the proper detection system, can extinguish a fire before it becomes detectable to the eye, thus protecting resources from damage and businesses from any major interruptions.
Gaseous Fire Suppression Systems

– Carbon dioxide is a clean and non-flammable gas that is commonly used as a fire-extinguishing agent for areas that are not typically occupied by people. CO2 efficiently and effectively extinguishes fires without leaving any toxic or liquid residue that might damage property or equipment.
