Above all, suppression systems (sprinklers) save lives and extinguishing fires. They are also important in reducing smoke damage and smoke density, and smoke in halation which is the most common casue of death in house fires.

Sprinkler systems are activiated independently, which means only the sprinkler over a fire will open, while the others remain shut.

The instant, automatic response of a sprinkler systems saves on valuable evacuation time and reduces and isolates damage, reducing the risk to firefighters. The ability to be activated individually has a great environmental and economic impact. A spinkler system can reduce the risk to life by half, bringing a fire under control in 5 minutes wherever you live. Fire rescue services can take on average 10-12 minutes to reach a fire, dependent on its location from the fire station. It’s possible to incorporate spinklers into the design of your home, be it a modern contemporary new build or a traditional period home. Spinkler heads can be concealed or painted to blent in with your interior choice.
