A professional fire services company should design, install, and maintain commercial fire sprinkler systems. DEM Fire is ideally positioned to upgrade the existing commercial fire sprinkler system or create a fire sprinkler system for a new commercial or industrial facility.

Whether it’s an office building, a retail store, or a manufacturing facility, the risk of fire poses a significant threat to both lives and property. In the event of a fire, seconds can make all the difference in ensuring the safety of occupants and minimising damage. This is where commercial fire sprinkler systems play a crucial role.

Commercial fire sprinkler systems are designed to detect and extinguish fires automatically, providing an immediate response to mitigate the spread of flames and smoke. These systems consist of a network of pipes connected to water sources strategically placed throughout a building, with sprinkler heads mounted on the ceiling or walls.

Type of commercial fire sprinklers

There are several types of commercial fire sprinkler systems, each designed to meet specific fire protection needs:

Wet Pipe Systems: The most common type of sprinkler system, where water is constantly stored in the pipes and released immediately upon activation of the sprinkler heads.

Dry Pipe Systems: Ideal for environments where freezing temperatures are a concern, these systems are filled with pressurised air instead of water. When a sprinkler head is activated, the air is released, allowing the water to flow and extinguish the fire.

Pre-action Systems: A combination of wet and dry pipe systems where an electronic valve holds back water. Water is released into the pipes only when a fire is detected and confirmed, minimising water damage from accidental activation.

Deluge Systems: Designed for high-hazard areas, these systems simultaneously release large volumes of water through all sprinkler heads, providing rapid fire suppression over a wide area.

Commercial fire sprinkler systems offer numerous benefits

Fire sprinkler systems are equipped with heat-sensitive elements that respond to high temperatures, activating the sprinkler heads and extinguishing the fire at its earliest stages. Unlike manual firefighting methods, commercial fire sprinkler systems operate automatically, even when the building is unoccupied, ensuring a timely response to fire emergencies.

By containing the fire before it spreads, commercial sprinkler systems help minimise property damage. Some insurance providers offer discounts on premiums for buildings equipped with fire sprinkler systems.

The primary goal of commercial fire sprinkler systems is to protect lives. By controlling the fire’s growth and spread, these systems provide occupants valuable time to evacuate safely.
