Ask Howe about installing one or more of the following sprinkler systems:
Wet and Dry Fire Sprinkler Systems
Wet and dry fire sprinkler systems refer to the state piping is left in between fires. Wet sprinkler systems keep their water supply close at hand, while dry systems start with pressurized air or nitrogen. When the sprinklers are activated, a special valve on dry systems will trigger, releasing the water supply and starting the fire suppression process.
Deluge Sprinkler System
A deluge system releases a large supply of water all at once instead of through timed release of the sprinkler heads. Every head opens simultaneously, allowing a larger amount of water to pass through. The sudden flooding is used to extinguish fires as quickly and completely as possible, regardless of water damage. A deluge system is ideal for industrial facilities like manufacturing plants, as these often house hazardous materials capable of causing catastrophic damage.
Fire Pump Installation
Many larger buildings need a little extra help to make sure their fire protection system covers everything equally. A fire pump is especially useful for high-rise buildings, where pressure has to contend with gravity to deliver water or other fire suppression materials to the top floors. These are also known as jockey pumps or sprinkler pressure maintenance pumps.
