Fire Sprinklers in the Home | Corona, CA

Did you know that small fire can start with just a little flame and fully submerge a room in less than three minutes? That’s an extremely short amount of time. But if fire sprinklers are available, they can reduce the risk of death by about 80%, so why would you not install them in the home? It may seem unnecessary, but here are six reasons you may change your mind:

  • The sprinkler heads activate individually. Fire sprinkler heads activate only over the area where the fire is. Only the sprinkler heads closest to the fire will activate to spray water on the fire.
  • Fire sprinklers are activated by heat, not smoke. For instance, if smoke from a recently blown out candle or burnt food from an over or toaster will not trigger the fire sprinkler like a smoke detector.
  • Many fire sprinklers activate within 30-60 seconds, growing and spreading while the firefighters are in route. The longer it takes to put out a fire, the higher the risks for residents and property damage.
  • Residential fire sprinklers are smaller than commercial sprinklers and can be incorporated into the ceilings of many homes. Residential sprinkler fixtures are available in many types of finishes to make them more inconspicuous.
  • Fire sprinklers cause less water damage than a fire hose. Fire hoses discharge 80-125 gallons per minute, while fire sprinklers only discharge around 8-25 per minute.
  • Smoke alarms only alert residents but won’t extinguish a fire. Fire sprinkles can put out a fire while the residents flee from their home, increasing people’s safety and reduces the amount of property damage.

Extinguish Your House Fire with Sprinklers | Corona, CA

The most dangerous thing about fire is not its heat or the flames, but the toxic fumes and smoke that the fire produces. It makes it hard to see and difficult to breathe, while the toxic fumes deliver a knock-out that could literally kill you before the fire has any chance of getting close to you. Given how fire spreads so quickly and how being caught in one already makes for an extremely stressful situation, thinking about killing the fire with a fire extinguisher isn’t exactly easy. Even if you do manage to get to the fire extinguisher, what happens if the flame is already too big, or that the smoke is already too thick for you to see where you’re going? Enter fire sprinklers

When fire sprinklers are installed properly and routinely checked to make sure that they’re working, fire sprinklers can, in worse case scenarios, give you and your family as much as 10 minutes of cool, clean air to safely escape from your home.

With fire sprinkler systems, you have a means of controlling the flame. They may not be able to extinguish large fires, they are often able to contain the fire enough to keep the damage to your home at a minimum while firefighters arrive.

The added cost of having fire sprinklers installed and maintained isn’t exactly cheap but does add value to your home and insurance premiums should be cheaper. But there are also plenty of other advantages that any homeowner can enjoy if they choose to have a residential fire sprinkler system is installed – the fact that you, your family, as well as your investment, is well protected.

In-Home Sprinkler Systems: What You Need to Know | Corona, CA

Conducting regular maintenance and inspections for residential sprinklers are always a good idea, especially if you have a family you need to protect. Besides, they’re not even that difficult to do and you can easily do it yourself. Here are a few tips to protecting your property:

Make visual checks on all your shutoff valves. The first step is to make a visual check on all the water shutoff valves to see if they’re all open and if the storage tank is full.

Conduct flow tests periodically. Flow tests are also a definite must and should be conducted every few months. Having a system with a clearly-labeled flow-test valve that sprinkles to the outside can help tremendously in this regard. To test, simply open the valve slowly and let the water run its course for more than a minute.

Check the sprinkler components. Make sure that the sprinkler heads and cover plates are not painted over as this will cause problems with their operation.

Use visual signs. Majority of hazards resulting from sprinklers often result from locking the sprinkler valves in the closed position by mistake. Placing signs near the sprinkler components can help remind you and anyone in your house or building what the correct positions are.

Secure the control valves. If your valves are connected to your fire alarm system, you can supervise them electronically. You can also try putting up LO/TO signs to prevent unauthorized closures.

If you have doubts about whether you’ve checked it properly or not, check with your local fire marshal regarding laws regarding sprinklers your area and how to know if a sprinkler inspector is licensed and legitimate.

It can turn overwhelming very easily if you don’t have the proper training. That’s where we come in…

The design of fire protection systems is a multi-step process beginning with an assessment of the environment to be protected. Factors, both internal and external to the environment, are considered. This information is used to establish performance objectives for the fire protection system being designed. Our experienced engineering department conducts detailed studies to determine the optimum approach to providing the correct system application, meeting the needs of our clients in the most cost-effective way possible.

We begin with a site survey of the facility then provide the client with appropriate alternatives based on an assessment of the fire protection and life safety needs.  We will often consult with the client’s insurance company and the local fire department for their input during the decision-making process, in order to ensure that everything is up to code and covered by insurance. Once a decision is made on the specific type of system required, we assign a primary engineer to the project who will then develop the appropriate engineering design.

Our CAD design services include:

  • Fire sprinkler design drawings with as much detail as required and then some.
  • All designs are based on the latest NFPA codes. All schematic CAD drawings include underground fire supply, riser details with location within structure, main and branch line locations, sprinkler head type and location.

Three Reasons That Commercial Properties Should Have Fire Sprinklers Systems | Corona, CA

Fire Sprinklers Systems

It should be common knowledge that every commercial property should have fire sprinkler system installed to prevent fire damage. However, many people don’t realize how truly important these type of fixtures are in the case of a fire does occur. As a matter of fact, there is plenty of evidence that fire sprinklers are more effective that many give them credit for. If you’re considering having a fire sprinkler system installed, you should know how this fixtures can benefit your building in case of fire.

Fire Sprinkler Systems Are Virtually Fault-Free. According to a recent study conducted on fires, researchers found that fire sprinklers operated during 91% of all reported fires big enough to activate the sprinkler system. In fact, 9 out of 10 times, the fire sprinklers systems worked flawlessly. The reason fire sprinklers typically stop working is due to lack of maintenance.

Fire Sprinkler Systems Can Cut Potential Losses in Half. We all should know that fire can result in devastating damage both structures of building and the people that may be trapped inside the building. In another recent study, researchers found that when paired with early warning systems, fire sprinklers not only reduce property damage, but reduces injuries and loss of life by over 50%. These are statistics that should not be ignored!

Fire Sprinkler Systems Help Save Lives. I would say one of the most important things that fire sprinklers do is help lower the risk of death and injury during fires. According to another recent study done by the National Fire Protection Association, there’s no record of more than two lives lost inside of a building that has full a fire sprinkler system installed that is well maintained and fully functioning.

As you can see from the facts stated above, having a full fire sprinkler system installed is a crucial part of fire protection.

Why Fire Sprinklers Are Important

fire sprinklers corona caWhen talking about fire suppressants at home, what’s the first thing you think about? Water, yes. Though, in modern times, people have come to rely on fire extinguishers as they’re lighter, easier to carry and generally more efficient. Unless, of course, the fire has become too big to the point that water blasting through the hoses of firemen are the only remaining option.

Before the fire becomes too big, however, fire extinguishers aren’t exactly the most efficient way to kill fire. No, fire sprinklers are.

The Problem With Accidental Fires

The most dangerous thing about fire is not its heat, nor is it the flames. Rather, it’s the toxic fumes and smoke that the fire produces. The smoke makes it hard to see and difficult to breathe, while the toxic fumes deliver a knock-out that could literally kill you before the fire has any chance of getting close to you.

Given how fire spreads so quickly and how being caught in one already makes for an extremely stressful situation, thinking about killing the fire with a fire extinguisher isn’t exactly easy. There’s a huge chance that the first thing you’d want to do is get out of the house. Though, even if you do manage to get to the fire extinguisher, what happens if the flame is already too big, or that the smoke is already too thick for you to see where you’re going?

Here’s where fire sprinklers come in.

When installed properly and routinely checked to make sure that they’re working, fire sprinklers can, in worse case scenarios, give you and your family as much as 10 minutes of cool, clean air to safely escape from your home.

10 minutes is more than enough time for you and everyone inside to vacate the house.

Added Property Value and Protection 

In case of a house fire, the lack of sprinklers means that there’s nothing you can do to minimize the damage. With fire sprinkler systems, however, you have a means of controlling the flame. While fire sprinklers aren’t usually enough to kill huge fires, fire sprinklers are often able to contain the fire enough to keep the damage to your home at a minimum.

This, and the fact that residential fire sprinkler systems can be made so that the fire department is called immediately if the sprinklers are triggered means that the fire will be taken care of as soon as the firefighters arrive.

Of course, the added cost of having fire sprinklers installed and maintained isn’t exactly cheap. Though, you’d be glad to know that the installation of fire sprinklers does add value to your home. Your home should be valued much higher, and insurance premiums should be cheaper as most insurance companies are fully aware that it is cheaper to cover the damage of a burnt kitchen than it is to cover the expenses of a house burnt down to the ground.

There are also plenty of other advantages that any homeowner can enjoy if they choose to have a residential fire sprinkler system is installed.

Still, the fact that you, your family, as well as your investment, is well protected is the most important factor. The rest, such as cheaper insurance premiums, and so on, are just icing on the cake.
