FAQs

How do they work?

Fire sprinklers are mechanical devices. They are individually heat activated and operate independently off any smoke alarms that may be installed.

When a fire starts, the heat quickly reaches a critical temperature at ceiling level.  After 1 or 2 minutes above this critical temperature a fusible link in the head melts, allowing water to flow to the activated head. In most cases a single head operates to control or extinguish the fire.

When the fire is extinguished, the system is turned off with a simple manual valve.
