Fire emergencies can happen any time. All types of properties should therefore be equipped with proper fire sprinklers.
Whether it’s your home or business, a fire sprinkler is designed to protect lives and properties in the event of a fire. It is an effective protection system.
But, there are many misconceptions about fire sprinklers. These myths prevent many people from investing in them.
Here are some misconceptions you need to stop believing:
In the event of a fire, the whole system will activate
Contrary to popular belief, fire sprinklers don’t operate this way. Each individual fire sprinkler sets off automatically in the event of a fire.
As temperatures rise, individual fire sprinkler heads set off. It’s worth noting that only the sprinklers closest to the fire will be activated.
In the majority of instances, one or two sprinklers are enough to control a fire. So, you won’t have to worry about your entire property suffering from water damage.
It could accidentally go off
The chance of this happening is low. In fact, most of the fire sprinklers available today are designed to minimize such accidents.
There’s no need to worry about a sprinkler setting off automatically and causing damage to your property.
It is enough to protect you against fire
You need a smoke detector and a fire sprinkler to protect your property from fire. While a smoke detector will alert you of a fire, a sprinkler system will extinguish the flames.
Both these fire protection systems should be used together to ensure maximum protection and minimize potential losses or property damage.
It causes extensive water damage
Although fire sprinklers do cause water damage, it isn’t as extensive as some people think.
The primary use of a sprinkler is to control fire damage. Therefore, the water damage isn’t as bad as damage from a fire.
In addition, fire sprinklers release nearly 8-24 gallons of water per minute. As compared to a fire hose (80 to 125 gallons), sprinklers release much less water.
