(Fire Extinguisher System)
A fire sprinkler system is an automatic fire protection system in a domestic or commercial building which discharge water to extinguish a fire when the sprinkler head detects the fire through rising temperature. Though it is a system which is featured with both the fire detection and suppression systems
The sprinkler head features different finishes, temperature ratings and 2 types of temperature responses; either a standard response (5mm bulb) or a fast response (3mm bulb).
How Sprinkler Discharge Water
As the temperature at the sprinkler head rises to its rated temperature, the liquid inside the glass bulb expands and breaks the glass, thus activating the sprinkler head to discharge water.
How fire sprinkler systems work
Fire sprinklers are an important part of fire safety because they can help to extinguish a fire before it has a chance to spread. In many cases, fire sprinklers are the first line of defense against fires.
When a fire starts, the temperature at the sprinkler head rises between 135 to 165 degrees Fahrenheit. This causes the glycerin-based liquid inside the glass bulb to expand and break the glass. The heat from the flames then activates the fire sprinkler closest to the fire. This causes pressurized water to flow from the sprinkler head, which puts out the fire. The amount of water that is released from the sprinkler head is determined by the design of the sprinkler system.
