“I just wanted to say thank you to the both of you for doing your jobs as well as you do. It is a real pleasure dealing with a company with professionals such as you two. My alarm system is inspected and ready to go (on the same day as you received the contract/quote I would like to ad), my sprinkler system is always taken care of without incident (no leaks or valves left open and your technician is always on time), and I still use the subcontractor I found through you guys for the extinguishers.
Again, thank you for the excellent job that you do. Be sure to let me know when you do extinguishers in house so I can contact you for a quote.”
Types of fire sprinklers
There are a variety of fire sprinklers available for installation at commercial properties. If you’ve got a specific requirement, there’s a sprinkler that will fit it. While all sprinklers have some similarities, each is unique. For example, the sprinklers that work on a deluge system wouldn’t be appropriate for a standard wet pipe system. To avoid any confusion, let’s go over the four major types below:
Among the most commonly installed are the pendant-type sprinkler. They protrude down from the ceiling and have a deflector attached to them so that when the system is activated, water will hit the deflector and spread out in a circular pattern, covering a wide area.
For smaller areas that aren’t a good fit for regular sprinklers, the sidewall sprinkler is a great option. Hotels often use these, as water pipes in the ceilings aren’t an option and are instead placed in the walls. Rather than deploying water in a full circular pattern, the water is shot down in a half-circle spray pattern.
For commercial properties containing ductwork or beams that block the ceiling, an upright sprinkler is a preferred style. The sprinkler simply sits on top of the water pipe and the water is directed into a deflector similar to that on the pendant sprinkler, redirecting the water downward, in a circular pattern.
Concealed sprinklers provide a smoother, cleaner and more aesthetically pleasing look; as these sprinklers are close to flush with a finished surface.
A plate is placed over the hole in the wall or ceiling to conceal the sprinkler, but in an emergency situation, the plate will fall off at a lower temperature than the sprinkler’s rating.
Concealed sprinklers are similar to pendant sprinklers in that they too utilize a fluid-filled glass bulb or a fusible link as their activation mechanism.
