What comes to mind when you hear the word sprinkler?
For many the first thing they think of will be the sprinkler systems on lawns. Unlike lawn sprinklers, fire sprinklers are rarely turned on and when they are, only the sprinkler heads near heat are activated so that water is saved and the amount of water damage is kept at a minimum.
The type of sprinkler you install will also be directly related to the size of the building in which it will be used. The outside temperature is also a factor in choosing the best sprinkler system, especially if the weather is often below freezing. In this case an option is the dry sprinkler system. the pipes contain nitrogen or sometimes oxygen. These elements are released into the pipes before the liquid water. Foam fire prevention systems are used if flammable material is around. The sprinkler heads release water mixed with a concentrated foaming agent.
Fire Sprinkler systems can also represent an extremely small portion of the construction costs of a house or other building. Also, any damage that results from the activation of the fire sprinklers is also likely to be minimal. Sprinkler systems in fiction are far more inefficient than reality so that a fire that can set them off is likely to only activate the sprinkler heads that are in its vicinity rather than those throughout the whole building.
