Wet Pipe Sprinkler Systems
Wet pipe systems are very economical and reliable for most fire protection applications. They inherently require the least amount of installation time and cost.
Dry Pipe Sprinkler Systems
Dry pipe systems are initially filled with air and are used where there is danger of freezing pipes or when any leak in a wet pipe system could damage valuables.
Pre-Action Sprinkler Systems
Pre-action sprinkler systems are dry sprinkler systems which include an additional electronically operated valve for activation which acts as a fail safe against inadvertent discharge.
Deluge Sprinkler Systems
Deluge sprinkler systems have all sprinkler heads always open and when a sensor turns the sytem on due to excess heat water sprays from all sprinkler heads at once to dowse a fire. This system nomally used in building where normal sprinkler sytems can't keep pace with a fire such as in chemical plants.
Fire Pumps are required when there is inadequate water flow and pressure to a sprinkler system.
Standpipe Systems are basicaly the valves,hoses,and piping connections necessary to discharge water from a water supply to extinguish a fire.
