While we wish to never be in the situation where we need fire sprinkler systems to switch on, it is crucial to have the necessary precautions in place to help add an additional layer of fire protection in the event of a house fire.
At NTX Plumbing, we offer turn-key solutions to meet your home fire protection needs. Our expert and knowledgeable team have years of experience installing, repairing, and servicing fire sprinkler systems in homes, condos, townhomes, and duplexes. We offer a wide range of reliable systems to meet all residential applications and budgets.
When a fire breaks out, it can spread rapidly. Speed is of the essence, but many residences in Texas do not have a residential fire protection system. Because they are automated, fire sprinklers can react faster than people or the fire department, making them a crucial part of your risk management plan. In a property without fire sprinklers, fires can grow to dangerous levels when the fire department arrives, putting people, structures, and possessions at risk.
With a residential fire protection system, heat, flames, and smoke are reduced - minimizing damage and giving you time to evacuate the building.
A wet sprinkler system is the most common type for residential applications. A piping network is installed behind the walls and ceilings, with individual sprinklers placed strategically along the piping to protect the areas of the home that lie underneath them. Because water is always present within the piping, the sprinklers are ready to extinguish the fire the second they’re activated, without delay.
Unlike smoke alarms, wet fire sprinklers are not activated by smoke. Instead, when a fire breaks out, the air temperature rises, and once the temperature reaches a certain height, the fire sprinkler is activated.
Fire sprinklers can often extinguish fires before the fire department arrives. Even in cases where the fire isn’t fully extinguished, it’s significantly controlled to minimize damage and protect your property investment.
Dry sprinkler systems are the next most common type of system used in residential applications and are similar to wet pipe systems with one key difference: The pipe is not always filled with water.
The water is kept behind a dry pipe valve located a distance away from the sprinklers. When the temperature rises and the sprinkler is activated, a glass bulb or fusible link of the sprinkler breaks. As a result, this releases air from the sprinkler head. The pressure drop allows the valve to open, water fills the system, then flows from the sprinkler head.
The type of fire sprinkler system you select will depend on your needs and budget, and our expert team at NTX Plumbing will be happy to advise you on which system is most suitable for your property.
While wet sprinkler systems are the most popular choice due to their ease of use, installation, and maintenance, they cannot be used in places where the temperature reaches below 40˚F as this puts the water inside the pipes at risk of freezing.
Dry sprinklers are preferred in unheated buildings where the temperature may reach below 40°F.
Once we have installed your fire protection system, it is essential to abide by local codes that govern how often your fire sprinkler system is tested and inspected. These ongoing inspections are just as necessary as the initial design and installation of the system, ensuring that it’s effective over the long term. From design to installation to testing and maintenance, NTX Plumbing offers a dependable solution that ensures your building is safe for years to come.
