Things to Consider with Concealed Sprinkler Heads

concealed sprinklers heads

When you choose to install a residential fire sprinkler system, you’re making the choice to not only protect your property, but the people within it too. In domestic properties such as homes, concealed sprinkler heads can help your residential sprinklers blend into the decor, keeping them discreet yet still effective and ready to activate. From traditional sprinkler systems to water mist systems, there are various systems that work effectively in homes and commercial properties alike. Concealed sprinkler heads are a great choice, but there are a few important factors you need to consider.

Installing a residential sprinkler system could be the best choice for fire safety in your home. They work to extinguish a fire at the source, detecting the heat before the fire spreads out of control. Here at RAD Fire Sprinklers, we can install various fire protection systems into your property, from high-pressure water mist systems to traditional automatic sprinkler systems. If you’re considering sprinkler systems for your home, here are some facts about concealed sprinkler heads you need to know.


Never Obstruct Your Sprinkler System

Like all sprinkler systems, their effectiveness will be hindered if they are obstructed in any way. Cover plates can fall off if they become damaged, or they may not be able to activate efficiently. If you decide to decorate, be careful when painting your ceiling; if any paint sticks the cover plate to the ceiling, the cover plate may not be released which would prevent any water from being discharged onto the fire. Anything that could possibly obstruct your sprinkler system must be kept away from the sprinkler heads, such as decorative pieces, chandeliers or any other large light fixtures.

Sprinkler systems save lives, but only if they are utilised correctly. The design and installation of sprinklers will be dictated by the dimensions and shape of the rooms within your property, so any extra detailing and decor you add to the building is your choice entirely, but you must always keep your sprinkler system in mind.

Always Trust a Professional

If you notice a fault with your concealed sprinkler heads, you should never attempt to fix the issue yourself. They work perfectly in homes and residential spaces, as they can blend into the interiors and cause little disruption to the style of your interiors. However, they can come into trouble if they are damaged or obstructed. Attempting to fix the system yourself could lead to more issues, so contacting a professional with 3rd party accreditation like FIRAS or IFC is the best course of action.

Every year, checks should be conducted on your fire sprinkler system by a qualified professional with 3rd party accreditation like FIRAS or IFC. They cannot be inspected by the owners of the system or the building’s occupier. If you would like to have a fire sprinkler system installed into your property, your sprinkler heads can either be exposed or concealed; no matter your choice, they’re the best option for extensive fire protection, working alongside your smoke alarm to both warn occupants of a fire and work to extinguish the flames.

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.
