Fire Sprinklers in Homes

Home Fire sprinklers are becoming more common place. This is not surprising when you learn that roughly 80% of all fire deaths occur at home in private residential properties

Fire sprinklers have been around for more than a century, protecting commercial and industrial properties and public buildings. What many people don’t realize is that the same life-saving technology is also available for homes.

Why Have a Fire Sprinkler in your Home?

There are many reasons to consider having a sprinkler fitted in your house. Fire sprinklers can dramatically reduce the heat, flames, and smoke produced in a fire. This can:

  • Contain the fire and restrict the damage to your property and possessions.
  • Minimise water damage as the sprinkler will activate early only in the area of the fire.
  • Protect residents in the event of a fire by slowing and even stopping the fire giving you, your family and your pets more time to safely leave the hose. 
  • Reduce financial loses in the event of a fire.
  • Protect private possessions or collections which my be difficult to replace or have significant sentimental value.
