Sprinkler Systems

Sprinkler

Fireline can design, furnish and install all types of fire sprinkler systems including wet pipe systems, pre-action systems and deluge systems as well as standpipe systems and fire pumps.

  • Wet Pipe Sprinkler Systems – The most common type of sprinkler system. A sprinkler system employing automatic sprinklers attached to a piping system containing water. This piping system is connected to a water supply so that water discharges immediately from sprinklers opened by heat from a fire.
  • Dry Pipe Sprinkler Systems – A sprinkler system employing automatic sprinklers that are attached to a piping system containing air or nitrogen under pressure.
    The release of the air or nitrogen permits the water pressure to open a dry pipe valve, allowing the water to then flow into the piping system and out through the opened sprinklers.
  • Pre-Action Systems – A sprinkler system employing closed sprinklers attached to a piping system that is connected to a water supply through a valve that is opened by the operation of a fire detection system installed in the same areas as the sprinklers. When this valve opens, water flows into the piping system and discharges out through the open sprinklers.
  • Deluge Sprinkler System – A sprinkler system employing open sprinklers attached to a piping system that is connected to a water supply through a valve that is opened by the operation of a fire detection system installed in the same areas as the sprinklers. When this valve opens, water flows into the piping system and discharges from all sprinklers attached thereto.
