The fire sprinkler system is a crucial part of keeping commercial and residential buildings safe from fire risk. It prevents extensive fire damage and ultimately saves lives. Despite the benefits of traditional fire sprinklers, the biggest downside is that dousing an area can damage expensive electronic equipment, artwork, historical artifacts, or other items and require cleanup and, in some cases, a complete makeover restoration. Currently deployed automatic fire sprinklers are a critical first line of defence if a fire breaks out. But there is a chance that they can be triggered when the fire danger is limited. There is no need to mention that water damage consequences are very costly.
Fire requires three elements to burn: heat, oxygen, and flammable material to serve as a fuel. Most fire sprinkler systems put out or slow the growth of fires by drenching them and the surrounding area with water, removing heat and potential fuel sources. In contrast, water mist systems work by both cooling the room temperature and displacing oxygen with steam.
OptimusSprinklers is a centralized water mist suppression system, which provides sustainability and technological advantage, ensuring a high level of communication between sprinklers and temperature recognition, locating the "hot spots" and activating only affected areas of the fire system.
The OptimusSprinklers fire sprinkler system consists of a water supply and distribution piping system installed on walls or ceilings. Once a sprinkler head reaches the activation temperature, the system activates, locates the fire's epicentre, and sprays high-pressure water to extinguish it.
The system also coordinates and sends a stop signal to confirm a drop in CO2 level, minimizing water waste and consequential property damage. Reduced costs, lower weight, and ease of upkeep will make OptimusSprinklers water mist systems a popular alternative as a fire protection solution.
Originally fire sprinkler systems were used to protect large commercial buildings prone to store hazardous materials; now, they are in use in almost every building, including residential and public premises. Today, facilities in Canada are required by local code to have a properly installed and working fire sprinkler system.
