A fire sprinkler system is vital for any commercial, industrial, and medical facility. It is no joking business when a fire breaks out, and when fires get out of control, a fire sprinkler system comes to the rescue. If your building needs a fire sprinkler installation or ongoing fire sprinkler maintenance, Fireline Corporation offers sprinkler system services in Tysons, Virginia, and throughout the rest of Northern Virginia!
Fire Sprinkler System Installation
Fire sprinkler systems are worth their cost, but what exactly can you expect one to cost? The cost will depend on several factors, and each design is unique. The size, age, and type of facility it is will affect the total cost. Naturally, a larger building will need a more extensive fire sprinkler system, which will cost more. An older building might also present unique installation challenges that add to the price.
Moreover, the type of fire sprinkler system you install will depend on the type of building you have. For example, a warehouse might need a different sprinkler system than a grocery store or a museum. Ultimately, you will need to contact a professional, such as one at Fireline Corp., to know the total amount.
Types of Fire Sprinkler Systems
In the fire sprinkler system world, you can find several main types of fire sprinkler systems, one of which might apply to your facility. They are as follows:
- Wet pipe: A wet pipe system is one of the most common kinds, perfect for indoor areas with regulated temperatures like grocery stores, academic buildings, and office buildings. This type is closed and continuously contains water until a heat sensor triggers its valves to discharge the water.
- Dry pipe: Dry pipe systems are closed and filled with pressurized air or nitrogen gas. When a heat sensor triggers the system, it lowers the pressure within the pipes and only then do the valves open and water comes through.
- Pre-action: Pre-action systems also contain pressurized air or nitrogen gas. Unlike dry pipe systems, however, these lower the pressure and discharge the water only after a connected smoke or heat detection system goes off. This type is best for facilities with sensitive inventory, such as historical artifacts.
- Deluge: A deluge system is an open pipe system. Its valves are always open and there is no pressurized chemical in it. When water flows into it, it immediately soaks the area below.
