Automatic Fire Sprinkler System:
Fire sprinkler system is an active fire protection measure, consisting of a water supply system, providing adequate pressure and flow rate to a water distribution piping system, onto which fire sprinklers are connected.
Sprinklers may be required to be installed to reduce potential property losses or business interruption. Each sprinkler activates independently when the predetermined heat level is reached. Because of this, the number of sprinklers that operate is limited to only those near the fire, thereby maximizing the available water pressure over the point of fire origin.
Fire Sprinkler Systems have been the biggest breakthrough in fire protection in the last 100 years. Fire sprinklers are the most effective method of protecting lives and property. Over the years, fire sprinklers have become mandatory safety equipment in Bangladesh, in certain occupancies like newly constructed hospitals, schools, hotels and other commercial buildings, Industries, etc. subject to the local building codes and enforcement.
