Fire sprinkler systems are installed in a home to attack a fire in its early stages by spraying enough water to put out the fire or keep it from spreading, allowing occupants more time to escape. Before residential systems were introduced, fire sprinklers had been used for years in commercial and industrial buildings with excellent success.
Home fire sprinkler systems are practical. They are attractively designed so as to blend into modern décor, and yet so effective that most of the time, fires are contained by the operation of just one sprinkler. They have been proven to save property and the lives of you and your loved ones.
Statistics Currently, more than 3,000 people die in fires in the United States each year, and 84% of these deaths occur in residential homes. Not only does the risk of dying in a fire decrease by about 80% when sprinklers are present, sprinklers provide significant property protection, reducing the average loss by 71% per fire (information from the National Fire Protection Association).
