Fire Sprinkler Systems: Installation, Inspection, Repair & Monitoring Services in Houston, TX
A Fire Sprinkler System is an active fire protection system providing active water flow in the water distribution system with a high-pressure flow rate. Although historically it has been used in the industrial plants and commercial buildings, it has been becoming a law to install Fire Sprinkler System in the residential homes and multi-family apartments. A closed head sprinkler is held closed by a heat-sensitive glass bulb, the glass bulb applies pressure to pipe cap which acts as a plug which prevents water from flowing until the ambient temperature around the sprinkler head reaches to activate the head and flow water. Thus, only sprinklers near the fire will operate, normally just one or two. This maximizes water pressure over the point of fire origin and minimizes water damage to the building.
