The National Institute of Standards and Technologies (NIST) performs a realistic fire scenario involving a Christmas tree that has been left unwatered in the average American living room. A small ignition source has been placed at the base of the tree, but no other accelerants have been used. It may be a good time to check your smoke detectors.
The evolution of the sprinkler head. This video demonstrates the flow pattern and water output of your standard sprinkler head and compares them to Early Suppression Fast Response (ESFR) sprinkler heads. ESFR sprinkler heads are generally used in tall warehouse storage applications to avoid the need for in-rack sprinklers. If your warehouse sprinkler system was installed more than 15 years ago, you most likely have standard sprinkler heads and may not be properly protected. Give us a call to receive an evaluation of your sprinkler system by a Licensed Fire Protection Engineer.
Still think fire sprinklers are a waste of time and money? Check out this video that shows the difference between being properly protected and not protected at all. The product in the cardboard boxes is your typical plastic drinking cups.
