How Domestic Sprinklers Impact Each Room

domestic sprinkler in ceiling

Fire sprinkler systems are a popular sight in commercial properties such as hotels and office spaces, with concealed sprinkler heads to keep the decor pristine. Domestic sprinklers are becoming more popular in new build homes, both in private and residential properties such as care homes. They can keep all inhabitants safe as well as save the property from fire and water damage. Sprinklers are great for improving the safety of your home, but how do they enhance each room?

The obvious answer to “which room should I install sprinklers in?” is the kitchen due to the various fire hazards that are present. However, they work perfectly in any room, protecting your home and even boosting the overall price of your property if you choose to sell. If you’re thinking of installing sprinklers into your home, here are some of the benefits of installing them in each room in your home.


Kitchens and Dining Rooms

The most common place for domestic sprinklers to be installed is in the kitchen or the dining room. With so many electrical appliances in such close proximity to water, the risk of fire is always present. Leaving tea towels close to your oven or hobs can also cause a blaze to start, so it’s important to be as safe as possible when cooking. If your dining room is doubled up with your kitchen, the fire can spread to your dining table and chairs, causing more damage.

By installing sprinklers in your kitchen and dining room, you can react quickly to the fire. Fire sprinkler systems work to detect heat from a fire rather than smoke, activating when the room gets too hot. This is a quick reaction, and only the sprinkler heads within the nearest vicinity to the fire will activate. This not only prevents fire damage as the fire is extinguished but will keep flooding to a minimum too.


Living Room

There are various different appliances and fire hazards in your living room. In most cases, different electrical items will be plugged into one source or adapted. TVs, lamps, radios and even smart speakers can all be found in a living room. When too many electrical appliances are plugged into one source, you can overload the socket or adapter, causing a fire to start. This can not only cause damage to the property but can cause thousands of pounds worth of damage with the destruction of your expensive appliances.

Installing sprinklers in your living room can prevent major damage from occurring. It’s a commonly known fact that sprinklers and electrical equipment don’t mix. However, risk safety will be conducted. Even if the damage is caused to your electrical equipment, it is a small price to pay for the safety of your entire home and those who live there.

Bedrooms and Domestic Sprinklers

Bedrooms are probably one of the rooms least likely to present a fire hazard, but they’re still there. A lot of homeowners tend to light candles in their bedroom, which should never be left unattended (the same rule applies to candles anywhere else in the home, such as in the living room). Never leave candles near curtains or other textiles, and don’t leave them lit for too long on wooden surfaces. Other causes of fires in bedrooms include appliances such as straighteners that have been left on for too long.

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.
