What Types of Fire Sprinkler Systems Are Available?

Fire sprinklers are all the same, right? Nope! When you come to us with fire sprinkler needs, we’ll consider several options before designing and installing your system. We base our recommendations on factors including your facility type and the materials it houses. Then, we match your needs with one of the fire sprinkler systems below.

  • Wet Pipe System
  • Dry Pipe System
  • Pre-Action System
  • Deluge System
  • Foam System

Once we have determined the best type of fire sprinkler system for your facility, we design your system and then procure the necessary equipment before installation. 

Components of Fire Sprinkler Systems

Our Daytona Beach fire sprinkler repair team is adept at understanding the components of all fire sprinkler types and ensuring their proper functionality to safeguard your facility. We thoroughly evaluate each component during our installations and inspections and recommend any necessary repairs. These are some of the components that may make up your sprinkler system:

Control Valve – Also called a stop valve, this component is typically locked in the open position and keeps water from entering the pipes from your municipal water supply.

Alarm Valve – When a fire is detected, the alarm valve opens to let water into the sprinkler system.

Sprinkler Heads – Likely the only part of your sprinkler system you see, sprinkler heads disperse the water from the pipes to extinguish the fire.

Alarm Test Valve – This valve enables the isolation of the alarm devices from the water supply, allowing for a simulated test without activating the entire fire sprinkler system.

Motorized Bell – When the fire sprinkler is activated, the water sets off a hammer and bell alarm to notify building occupants of the fire.

The Fire Sprinkler System Installation Process

Our Daytona Beach fire sprinkler repair team develops a meticulous plan to make sure the job is done right. When you partner with DynaFire for your fire sprinkler installation, you can expect us to follow this process:

Design – We assess the building layout, fire risks, and local building codes.

Permitting – We obtain the necessary permits from your Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) to ensure your system complies with safety regulations.

Materials – We gather all the necessary materials for your project, including pipes, fittings, sprinkler heads, and valves.

Pipe Installation – We install pipes according to our design and then connect them to the water supply.

Sprinkler Head Installation – We place sprinkler heads according to the system design.

Testing and Inspection – We thoroughly test and inspect your system to meet safety standards.

System Activation – We activate your system once the above steps are completed.

Training – We will train building owners and occupants on properly using and maintaining the fire sprinkler system.

Documentation – Keeping comprehensive documentation of the installation process, including design plans, permits, and inspection reports, is essential for regulatory compliance and future reference.
