Facts about Domestic Sprinklers That Might Surprise You

Domestic sprinklers reduce fire-related injuries by at least 80% and property damage by 90%. They are widely recognised as the single most effective way to fight the spread of fires during their early stages. This is why there are over 70 million sprinkler systems installed worldwide, every year! With such life-saving technology, there is a lot we do not know about them. Let’s talk about some facts that might surprise a lot of people.

Domestic Sprinklers Are Environmentally Friendly

Sprinklers contribute to environmental protection by putting out a fire before it spreads, reducing airborne and water runoff pollution. According to research, homes with automatic fire sprinkler systems installed saw a startling 98% reduction in the number of greenhouse gases released by fires. Sprinkler systems therefore not only save lives but also save the environment.

Sprinkler Systems Save Water

According to statistics, widespread sprinkler use could prevent the use of up to 96% of the 5.6 billion litres of water. This is the amount of water that is used annually in the UK to put out large fires. For the entire population of a city the size of Leeds, this is the equivalent of three months’ worth of water supply. 

Domestic sprinklers save money

Home fire sprinklers in new construction cost £1.35 per square foot on average across the nation. Additionally, according to estimates, losses from fires in buildings with sprinklers are only one-tenth as great as those in unprotected buildings. Meaning that you will not end up spending as much money replacing possessions that got caught in the fire. 

Very Reliable

Sprinkler systems have a 99% success rate worldwide and have been used for well over a century with proven results. Modern systems that are more than 100 years old are still fully functional.

Legal Protection

If sufficient fire safety measures have not been taken, owners, occupants, and employers may be held legally liable for the results of a fire. Fire services fully support sprinklers because they protect firefighters’ lives.

I have used RAD for a couple of projects and found them to be good to deal with. They did a pair of 3 storey open plan houses and seven three and four story town houses. The sprinklers were to improve fire safety, allow more flexible space and comply with building regulations. The sprinklers were far more cost effective than the mist type systems and look very discrete when installed.

My requirement was a bit unusual for RAD in that I wanted a mist system in one room of a rented house. I had no drawings or technical back up. RAD were very helpful and repositioned the unit after the initial installation. Luckily with the help of Sonny, the engineer it all worked out very well.

As somebody who feels that it should be a necessity for all properties to have fire sprinkler systems, I am a big fan of this company. I have used them numerous times to service my home system and they are very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend their service.
