A trusted and well-experienced company such as Fire Guard LLC, which handles projects throughout the state of Ohio, should be your choice for high-quality sprinkler system installation and continued maintenance for your business, home, restaurant, school, elderly care facility, high rise building, day care center, or any other type of building that is in need of protection against fire.
Sprinkler System Types
- WET means the system Is full of water. With water always present in the pipes that supply the sprinkler heads, this sprinkler system is quick to react upon the operation of the sprinkler head in a fire. This is the most common system and is used where there is no risk of freezing.
- DRY means the pipes are filled with air that is always under pressure. The water is held back by a control valve. When a sprinkler head opens in a fire, the air pressure drop opens the valve and water flows into the pipes and onto the fire.
- PRE-ACTION means that multiple steps must occur before water Is released. The pipes are filled with air but water is only let into the pipes when smoke detectors operate. A pre-action system is used by places with irreplaceable items such as archive material, high value stock, computer backup systems and similar operations where it is not desired to have the sprinklers activate unless there is a real threat of fire.
