There are two classifications of fire sprinklers within the non-commercial market covered by BS9251:
Residential Fire Sprinkler Systems and Domestic Fire Sprinkler Systems
Domestic fire sprinkler systems: These are typically installed in houses and privately owned flats.
Generally speaking, a residential system will be installed in higher risk properties like Care Homes, Hostels, or Flats in (HMO’s) which have been poorly converted. (PCB’s).
Residential Fire Sprinkler systems are being installed throughout the UK. They are a relatively recent development, and like any other plumbing system, the pipe work is concealed within the fabric of the building. The development of concealed sprinkler heads ensures that there is a minimum visual impact on the internal décor of the room.

A Residential fire sprinkler system installed to BS9251 with smoke detection provides THE best residential fire protection for the inhabitants of a building should a fire develop in that property.
