Why Dry Sprinkler Systems are Preferred Over Wet Sprinkler Systems

Dry sprinkler systems are fire suppression systems that contain pressurized air or nitrogen in the pipes. When activated, dry sprinkler systems release a valve that allows water to flow through the pipes and spray the area. On the other hand, wet sprinkler systems hold water constantly in their pipes. Most storage facilities are not built with temperature control or insulation because they are made to store items, not people. Winter is notorious for freezing pipes. If your storage facility is not temperature-controlled and you live in a climate with distinct seasons, consider installing a dry sprinkler system. A wet sprinkler system can have an antifreeze loop installed to prevent the water in its pipes from freezing during cold months. Depending on what they store, storage buildings may not have insulation around pipes or are not temperature controlled. With Chesapeake Sprinkler Company, we look at year-round climate changes that can affect your sprinkler systems. 

Consider Special Hazard Fire Suppression Systems for Your Storage Facility

Similar to sprinkler systems, once the fire alarm is activated, the special hazard fire suppression system will release clean agents, dry chemicals, or another substance to extinguish the fire. Special hazard fire suppression systems are ideal for storage facilities that house expensive and unique equipment and products. Chesapeake Sprinkler Company will work with you to design an appropriate special hazard fire suppression system that will not harm your valuables. 

Less Manual Fire Alarms and Planned Organization

If your storage facility is typically left alone, there is less of a need to install manual fire alarms. However, state and local fire safety laws mandate a required amount. It is also possible to arrange your equipment and products in a way that prevents fire from spreading easily in your storage facility. Chesapeake Sprinkler Company will advise you on local laws and mandates from the National Fire Protection Association.
