Commercial / Industrial Fire Sprinkler Systems

A fire sprinkler is the part of a fire sprinkler system that discharges water when the effects of a fire have been detected, such as when a predetermined temperature has been reached. Fire sprinklers come in two styles, either automatic or open orifice. An automatic fire sprinkler features a heat-sensitive element, which when activated allows sprinkler to be pushed out and activated. Automatic fire sprinkler systems operate on an individual basis, meaning not every sprinkler becomes activated when one goes off. The open orifice sprinkler is identical to the typical, automatic sprinkler, except the automatic heat-sensitive element is removed and its application is set off by an outside unit detecting the effects of a fire.

Regulatory Requirements
Fire sprinkler application and installation guidelines and overall fire sprinkler system design guidelines, are provided by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 13, (NFPA) 13D and (NFPA) 13R.
