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 a sprinkler is 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 carefully controlled droplets which penetrate the fire plume and cool the burning material to below its ignition point, thus controlling the fire. Only the sprinkler(s) directly over the fire are operated.
The sprinklers are connected to pipework, usually filled with water, which is supplied either from the water mains or from a storage tank via a pump. When a sprinkler operates, the flow of water in the pipework operates a flow switch which in turn operates an alarm system.
At Aspire Fire we design, install and service sprinkler systems using the latest design and installation techniques including: water supplies (pumps and tanks), underground or aboveground hydrant mains, fire hydrants, hose reels and associated equipment and cabinets.
