WHAT IS A WET SPRINKLER SYSTEM?
What differentiates a wet sprinkler system from others? A wet sprinkler system is a sprinkler system that is connected to a water supply through a piping system that employs automatic sprinklers. When a fire has been detected, the rising temperature of the fire opens the sprinkler head, and water immediately begins to disperse.
Wet sprinkler systems are the most common and reliable fire suppression systems due to their simple structure and low number of components. Because of the relatively straightforward structure of the wet sprinkler system, the probability of malfunctioning is low. Even so, Metro Fire Protection Ltd. provides professional maintenance, inspections, and repairs for your fire suppression systems in Calgary.
WHY USE FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEMS IN CALGARY?
One of the biggest reasons to invest in a fire suppression system is that it saves lives, helping people evacuate buildings safely. The system can also reduce the risk of damage because it helps keep the fire from spreading. Compared to the cost of repairing a building after a fire, a wet sprinkler system is a relatively inexpensive investment to make. It can also help reduce your insurance premiums in the long run. Lastly, fire suppression systems in Calgary like wet sprinklers require low maintenance. If kept in good condition, a wet sprinkler could last up to 20 years without major repairs or upgrades needed.
WHO IS BEST SUITED FOR A WET SPRINKLER SYSTEM?
Wet sprinkler systems are pretty versatile and are one of the most common fire suppressions systems installed in Calgary. However, not every property is suited for a wet sprinkler system. For example, these types of systems only work best in buildings that are not susceptible to freezing temperatures. Should freezing occur, it could cause the piping in the system to burst. Wet sprinkler systems might also not be a good choice for areas that house special electronics, control panels, or certain medical equipment. The professionals at Metro Fire Protection Ltd. can help determine if a wet sprinkler system is right for your building.
