Fire Sprinkler Installation

Proper installation is essential in an effective fire protection system.

Pavilion provides expert fire sprinkler installation for all our residential, commercial and institutional projects. Whether we’re retrofitting a new system into your single-family home, or installing a system into a new large multi-story building, we take pride in delivering quality installation and effective results every time. We gather the information required or perform a hydrant flow test of all our sprinkler systems to obtain water supply pressure and quality assurance.

We do all of this at rate lower than our competitors, because of our streamlined business and specialization in sprinkler systems and fire suppression. We do not directly offer fire alarms or smoke detectors.

Type Of Systems

Pre-action

Pre-action fire sprinkler systems are filled with air, and when the smoke alarm or detector goes off, water is then able to pass through. This system requires two triggers to start water flow. It is set to prevent water from releasing in the case of a false alarm. This system is best for commercial or institutional buildings with valuable content, as water can cause significant damage.

Wet Pipe Systems

Wet pipe sprinkler systems consist of water constantly maintained within the sprinkler piping. They are the most common type fire sprinkler system. Wet pipe systems are simple, with less components, and reliable. They require less installation time than other systems and require the least amount of down time following a fire. Wet pipe systems are highly recommended in most cases, but are not suited for sub-freezing environments.

Dry Pipe Systems

In a dry pipe sprinkler system, the pipes are filled with pressurized air or nitrogen, as opposed to water. The system has a dry pipe valve, which is held in the closed position preventing water from entering the pipe, until a fire causes the sprinklers to operate. At this time, the air escapes and the valve releases allowing water to enter the pipes and flow through the open sprinklers onto the fire.

Dry pipe sprinkler systems provide automatic fire protection in freezing temperatures – its major advantage. These systems are more complex and require greater installation and maintenance time, with lower design flexibility. They also have a slower fire response time than wet pipe systems.

Deluge

A deluge sprinkler systems use a smoke or heat detector (like the pre-action system) to trigger water flow. Deluge systems have open nozzles and are used in places with high hazard areas, such as power plants and aircraft hangers. They differ from other fire sprinkler systems in that it releases water from all discharge devices.
