The Basics of a Fire Sprinkler System Layout

Fire sprinkler systems are specifically designed and laid out to save lives, equipment, and the building’s integrity. More challenging environments with difficult layouts such as apartment blocks, storage facilities, or factories require a pattern of powerful sprinklers to suppress severe fires. There are a number of steps for designing a fire sprinkler system, so let’s go over what those steps are and how they benefit sprinkler systems.

First, it’s important to identify and evaluate the water supply. Then, the kind of sprinkler system the building needs will have to be determined.

The hazard level of the property must be determined first and the proper protection can then be determined from there. Different properties have different standards and codes of conduct that call for specific suppression systems. Picking out compatible sprinkler heads to lay out is one of the final steps in designing a sprinkler system. The density area and curves of a building will call for varying water densities. Finally, choosing and laying out pipe is the step that completes the design of a successful fire sprinkler layout.
