Automatic Sprinkler Signs
Automatic sprinkler signs are signs used to place in the area of the automatic sprinklers. An automatic sprinkler is a fire-suppression or fire-control device with a heat-activated element. The sprinkler operates automatically when the air temperature rises to or above the device's specified temperature rating. When that happens, the sprinkler discharges water over a specified area. We carry all types of automatic sprinkler signage for your building.
Fire Sprinkler Signs- The signs are design to identify different controls and pipes for fire sprinkler systems in your facility. A fire sprinkler or sprinkler head is the component of a fire sprinkler system that discharges water when the effects of a fire have been detected. Many state required owner to install clear signs of what type of fire sprinkler he has on his facility.
There are various types of fire below you will find 4 type of fire system:
Dry Pipe Sprinkler system-Dry pipe sprinklers are similar to pre-action systems as they use pressurized air in the pipe which exits before water escapes. This causes a minute delay in water discharge but is ideal for buildings with low temperatures so the pipes do not freeze. These fire sprinkler systems have a fast opening tool to get rid of the air and speed up the flow of water. Warehouses located in the north are a good example of what buildings should use dry pipe sprinklers.
Wet Pipe Sprinkler system-Wet pipe fire sprinklers constantly have water in them. This allows for a quick reaction to a fire and is the most common type of sprinkler installed in buildings. A type of building that uses the wet pipe system is a high-rise or office building with a few floors. This fire sprinkler system is cost efficient and low maintenance.
Pre-action fire sprinkler system-Pre-action fire sprinkler systems are filled with air and water is allowed to pass through when the smoke alarm or detector goes off. This type of system requires two triggers to start water flow. It helps greatly that the pre-action fire sprinkler can be set to prevent water from spouting in case of a false alarm or a mechanical failure. The pre-action system is good for use in places where the sprinklers are only necessary when there is an actual fire so other items in the building do not get water damage from an accidental sprinkling. Such buildings include libraries and data centers. These places contain items of high value like electronics and goods damageable by water such as books
Deluge Fire Sprinkler -These types of fire sprinkler systems also need a smoke or heat detector like the pre-action system. A deluge system has open nozzles that can be used when a hazard is present. When flammable liquids are spread across a floor, deluge fire sprinklers are good to have. In that case, buildings such as industrial parks and buildings with many tanks have deluge fire sprinkler systems installed.
