Universal protection for almost all fire risks. In the event of a fire, sprinkler systems automatically switch on as a result of the heat exposure, initiate the extinguishing process, and alert the nearest fire department. The principle: Extinguishing nozzles are integrated into the ceiling pipe network. The sprinkler system is always ready to switch on with an independent water supply. The single-function extinguishing nozzles are sealed by a glass bulb. In the event of a fire, the glass bulb reacts to the resulting heat and bursts. The water is released to extinguish the fire via the open extinguishing nozzle with a targeted spray.
Different types of sprinkler systems are used depending on the area of application. Generally a distinction is made between wet, dry and pre-controlled drying systems.
-> Wet systems
are the most commonly used worldwide. The entire pipe network is under constant water pressure. In the event of a fire, the extinguishing agent is immediately ready in sufficient quantity. Wet sprinkler systems are used in frost-free areas inside buildings
-> Dry systems
differ from the above system in that the pipe network is not filled with water but with compressed air. This allows use in frost-prone buildings such as parking garages and unheated warehouses.
-> Pre-controlled dry systems
are used in critical areas where accidentally releasing water should absolutely be avoided. Two independent extinguishing trigger mechanisms are therefore connected to each other so that the extinguishing process begins only with simultaneous activation of both trigger mechanisms.
