Sprinkler System

Fire sprinklers are the minimum protection system for commercial buildings. In a fire sprinkler system, a network of piping filled with water under pressure is installed behind the walls and ceilings, and individual sprinklers are placed along the piping to protect the areas beneath them.
If fire breaks out, the air temperature above the fire rises and when it gets hot enough, the sprinkler activates by spraying water forcefully over the flames. Only the sprinkler(s) nearest the fire activate.
