Why You Should Consider Sprinklers for Your Home

Last year, the Fire and Rescue service attended approximately 685,000 fire-related incidents, with 31,300 being known as “accidental dwelling” fires. There are numerous reasons why a fire may start in someone’s home, but the most important factor to consider is whether your property is as protected as possible. Domestic sprinklers are installed in homes and apartments across the UK, providing instant fire safety to all residents. Fire sprinkler systems extinguish the fire as efficiently as possible, saving lives in the process. 

Domestic fire sprinkler systems come equipped with discreet, concealed sprinkler heads in order to eradicate any interference with your existing interior decor. From traditional domestic sprinkler systems to high-pressure mist systems, sprinklers are a great choice to control any fires in your home and keep your family as safe as possible. If you’re looking to discover the many benefits of domestic sprinklers, read our latest article below.


They Can Reduce Fire Damage

Domestic sprinklers can detect fires quickly, extinguishing the blaze before it can spread to other parts of your home. If the sprinkler heads are placed correctly, they can detect the heat that is emitted from the fire and work efficiently to put it out with a small amount of water being expelled. This not only reduces the damage the fire can cause, but can significantly decrease any water damage caused by the sprinklers. To reduce any water damage even further, we suggest that you consider utilising our fire misting system. This revolutionary design works to displace the oxygen with steam, using less water pressure than a regular fire sprinkler system.

The extra protection provided by a domestic sprinkler system installation can even increase the value of your home; residential sprinklers are incredibly attractive to those searching for a property, especially if fire safety is high on their priority list. The concealed fire sprinkler heads are perfect for homes, as they don’t interfere with your interior design and are automated as soon as they detect a fire.


They Both Warn and Act When a Fire Starts

Although private sector landlords are required to have a smoke alarm installed on every storey of their properties, there’s no law that says you need to have a fire alarm in your private household. However, they are mandatory in all dwellings in Wales. Despite this, it can significantly increase your insurance costs. Alongside your fire alarm, it’s always worth considering domestic sprinklers for optimal fire protection. Automatic sprinkler systems will detect the heat from the fire, activate immediately and, in a majority of cases, extinguish the fire before it spreads and causes significant harm to life. It is important to understand that, if a sprinkler system is not installed within a property, the amount of water delivered to the blaze when the emergency services arrive will be considerably more than the sprinkler system would have utilised if fitted.

If you’re in another room, the activation of the sprinkler can alert you to the fire, giving you time to evacuate your premises and call the fire brigade. Fire alarms can only do so much; they can alert you to the fire via smoke detection, but by this point, the fire may have already spread, and the damage may be consequential. Domestic sprinklers are the quickest form of fire safety apparatus that can detect a fire quickly and work to extinguish it.


They Save Countless Lives

This probably goes without saying, but one of the main benefits of domestic sprinklers is that they’re the best choice for keeping everyone in your property as safe as possible. The National Fire Protection Association discovered that installing sprinkler systems into a property can reduce deaths by up to 87%, and injuries by 27%. They can also lower property loss by 70%, keeping your belongings and keepsakes safe as well as your friends and family. 

Fire sprinkler systems work quickly to extinguish fires, reacting to heat rather than smoke. This reduces the chance of the fire spreading, allowing all inhabitants to evacuate quickly and saving your property from significant fire damage. Here at RAD Fire Sprinklers, our team are familiar with design issues that can affect the installation of sprinkler and mist systems. Therefore, we can work with your property to advise which system best suits your particular project and install all sprinkler heads or mist nozzles in the most optimal places, keeping your family as safe as possible.

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.
