Are Your Fire Sprinklers Too High Above The Ceiling Line?

Sprinkler Heads Are Your Life Insurance…

Did you know…

Fire sprinkler systems have been around for more than two centuries and todays modern fire sprinkler systems are credited with reducing deaths and loss of property by more than 65 percent. Since sprinkler heads are automatically triggered by fire-specific temperature, just one or two sprinklers can quickly extinguish and/or contain a fire to the room where it started and cause little property damage. And because fire sprinklers use about six times less water than a fire hose, they’re actually less harmful to your property than a visit from the fire department.

Look Out For These Disruptors To Your Sprinkler System

With this effectiveness in mind, it is important to keep a fire sprinkler system in proper working order. One way is to verify each fire sprinkler head will deploy properly in the event of a fire.
A few things that may cause a fire sprinkler head to not work properly are painted sprinkler heads, corroded/dirty sprinkler heads or sprinkler heads that are too high above the ceiling line, causing a disruptive spray pattern.
