What Sprinkler Designs Are The Best?

Fire sprinkler designs are the way that fire sprinkler systems are configured to protect a building from fires. There are different types of fire sprinkler designs that are used depending on the specific needs of the building and the local fire codes. Some common fire sprinkler designs include wet pipe systems, dry pipe systems, and pre-action systems. Each of these designs has its own unique set of characteristics and advantages, and they are used in different situations to provide effective fire protection.

What Sprinkler Designs are there?

When protecting a building from the dangers of fire, one of the most effective measures is installing a fire sprinkler system. This system uses a network of pipes and sprinkler heads to automatically detect and suppress fires, providing a critical layer of defence against spreading flames.

But not all fire sprinkler heads are created equal. Different types of sprinkler designs are created to address specific fire hazards and environments, and choosing the right ones is crucial to ensuring that a building is adequately protected. 

There are two main types of fire sprinkler designs: the wet pipe sprinkler design is the most common. As the name suggests, they are connected to a water supply that is kept pressurized at all times. When a fire is detected, the sprinkler head is activated and water is immediately released to suppress the flames. The wet pipe sprinkler design is best suited for buildings with a low risk of freezing temperatures, as the water in the pipes could potentially freeze and cause damage

Whereas the dry pipe sprinkler design is used in buildings where the risk of freezing pipes is high, such as in unheated buildings or in areas with very cold climates. In a dry pipe sprinkler system, the pipes that carry the water to the sprinkler heads are filled with air instead of water. When a fire is detected, a valve opens and allows water to flow into the pipes and out through the sprinkler heads, activating the sprinkler system and extinguishing the fire. Dry pipe sprinkler systems are typically more expensive to install and maintain than wet pipe systems, but they are important in protecting buildings from fires in cold environments.

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.
