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.
The world's first modern recognizable sprinkler system was installed in the United Kingdom in 1812. In 1990 the US Congress passed PL-101-391, better known as the Hotel and Motel Fire Safety Act of 1990. This law requires that any hotel, meeting hall, or similar institution must meet fire and other safety requirements. In 2011, Pennsylvania and California became the first US states to require sprinkler systems in all new residential construction. Many municipalities now require residential sprinklers, even if they are not required at the state level.
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.
