A fire can devastate a business. According to a study by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency), about 40% of companies never reopen after a fire. Another 25% fail within the next year. These sobering statistics make one realize how crucial a fire protection system is. Thankfully, Fireline’s fire sprinkler system services in Chantilly, VA, can help your Chantilly business stay safe year-round.
Need Sprinkler System Installation?
If you need a new fire sprinkler system installed in your facility, Fireline Corporation offers the design and installation services you need to complete the job on time and in budget.
One of the first questions you might have on the project is how much it will cost. The main factors that will affect the final cost include the building’s size, type, and age. If the building is particularly vast or if you have expansion plans, the design will require more material. If the building is for a certain industry, such as manufacturing or retail, the type of fire sprinkler system will differ and so will the price. Also, if the building is older, it could present more installation challenges that a brand new building would not have. Ultimately, you can learn the exact price of the fire sprinkler system by talking with a professional at Fireline Corporation.
Types of Sprinkler Systems
What types of fire sprinkler systems are there? In general, there are four types.
- Wet Pipe: A wet pipe sprinkler system is the most common type of sprinkler system. It is a closed pipe with water that automatically discharges water when it senses heat from fire.
- Dry Pipe: A dry pipe system is closed and filled with pressurized air or nitrogen. A sensor allows the system to decrease the air or nitrogen gas pressure. Once this occurs, the pipes will open and water will come through and discharge to the room below. A dry pipe system is ideal for environments that experience freezing temperatures, as it contains no water that could break the pipes.
- Pre-action: A pre-action fire sprinkler system allows the facility to get the fire protection it needs but also provides maximum protection against unnecessary drenching of sensitive inventory like historic artifacts, books, and electrical equipment. It too contains pressurized nitrogen or air. A smoke or flame detector goes off first, and only then does the pressure decrease in the pipes and the water discharges.
- Deluge: A deluge system is an open pipe system that contains no air or gas. Once the water fills it, it immediately discharges a great amount of water.
