Fire Sprinkler System Installation
Fire Sprinklers are simple devices that are individually operated by the heat from a fire. When a fire starts hot gases rise to the ceiling. If there is a sprinkler present, a glass bulb or solder link gets hot and at a specific temperature (typically 68°C) breaks, releasing a cap and allowing water to flow onto a diffuser.
The diffuser breaks up the water flow into cautiously controlled droplets which enters the fire plume and cool the burning material to below its ignition point, subsequently controlling the fire.
The sprinklers are linked to pipework, which is commonly filled with water that is supplied either from the water mains or locally held storage tank through a pump. When a sprinkler operates, the flow of water in the pipework triggers a flow switch which in turn sets off the alarm system. The flow of water is small, usually less than 1/100th of the water used by the Fire and Rescue Service.
5 Step Installation Process
Customer produces AutoCAD drawings.
Install Pipe Work
We install our pipework at the same stage as electrical and plumbing process.
Sprinkler Heads Placement
The sprinkler heads are installed after the pipework is in place. Yellow temporary covers are placed over the heads to protect them during the continuing build process
Sprinkler Covers Removed
When the plastering is done the covers are then removed. Finally after the covers are removed the sprinkler cover plates are then installed.
Our engineers will go through a series of system checks and once the appropriate labelling etc is in place the system will be equivalence tested in order to ensure that the fire sprinkler system will perform adequately if required.
