For some commercial companies, they seek out these top three fire protection systems to help secure their business in the event of a fire as an alternative to wet sprinkler systems.

Fire Protection: Pre-Action Fire Sprinkler Systems

Pre-action fire sprinkler systems are ideal for commercial buildings that might potentially lose valuable assets when facing the threat of water from wet sprinkler systems in the event of a fire. Pre-action fire sprinkler systems can be an ideal fire protection tool for museums, libraries, electrical rooms, freezers, and offices with extensive electronics. In comparison to wet sprinkler systems that hold water within the pipes to be released immediately in the event of a fire, pre-action fire sprinkler systems hold back water through piping filled with air or nitrogen. Water will not be released until the system is instructed by a fire detection system. This can help ensure that valuables are not damaged by water in the event of a false alarm.

Foam Sprinkler Systems

For some commercial businesses, wet sprinkler systems filled solely with water cannot adequately control a fire caused by a liquid. In this case, foam sprinkler systems should be installed within the commercial building. Foam sprinkler systems are appropriate for manufacturing and processing facilities, warehouses, marinas, refineries, distillation plants, and other facilities where a fire is more likely to be caused by a liquid. A foam sprinkler system combines water with a foaming agent to blanket the fire and ensure that the fire cannot re-ignite, making it safer for building occupants to exit and fire safety professionals to assess the damage. 

Deluge Sprinkler Systems

Deluge sprinkler systems are appropriate for large commercial buildings with extensive ground to cover that would benefit from the mass release of water. Deluge sprinkler systems are designed to always be open and release a massive torrent of water through all sprinkler systems at the same time. This particular fire sprinkler system is well-suited for buildings with extensive equipment where fire can spread incredibly quickly, like power plants and processing facilities.
