Residential Sprinkler Systems


Technically advanced systems from the sprinkler sector experts

Residential sprinkler systems are designed specifically to control the spread of a fire within an apartment and from that apartment to any other; essential considerations in any residential building’s evacuation philosophy. For people living in high-rise buildings or those who may otherwise struggle with mobility, they can be a life saver.

The importance of sprinkler systems is reiterated within the latest revision of Approved Document B – sprinkler systems are now an absolute requirement on residential developments with floors 30m above ground level. The ADB references British Standard 9251 on guidance for a code compliant approach to the Building Regulations.

Sprinklers operate by means of a fusible temperature link located within each sprinkler head that expands on heating, causing the sprinkler head link to break. Water is then automatically expelled to the seat of the fire and surrounding areas suppressing it. This allows the fire size to be controlled, satisfying the objectives of the ADB.
