Pro’s and Con’s of Fire Sprinkler Systems:

  • Fire sprinklers are a long term, low maintenance investment and are often an insurance requirement in high-risk areas.
  • However, fire sprinklers only activate on detection of the heat from a fire. This is fine in low level applications around machinery or in office areas, but at the heights commonly encountered in many high-bay buildings, the fire would be an established blaze before being detected.
  • It should be remembered that sprinkler heads are activating at roughly the same temperature as point type heat detectors. Heat detectors are not considered suitable above 7.5m.  For this reason, we recommending taking logical and risk-based approach when specifying or installing sprinkler systems.  They may not necessarily be the best solution for every risk area.
  • Sprinkler systems are good for dealing with surface fires. However, if the fire is deep seated (for example, in waste recycling applications), the falling water may not adequately penetrate into the mass of material to actually extinguish the fire.
