Residential Fire Sprinklers

Product Overview

 Residential sprinklers are specifically designed for life safety. Unlike commercial sprinklers which are designed to protect property by controlling, containing or suppressing a fire, residential sprinklers are intended to prevent loss of life by providing occupants sufficient time to exit the premises safely. Fire brigades responding to a fire with a residential sprinkler system are able to enter the structure safely and extinguish the fire with minimal water damage.

Characteristics of residential fire sprinklers:

  • Utilise quick response activation elements, ensuring operation of sprinklers near the source of ignition. In most residential fires, only 1 or 2 sprinklers operate
  • Feature a high and wide spray pattern, controlling the spread of toxic fumes. Smoke inhalation is the most common cause of fire fatalities
  • Can be used in areas with limited water supplies
  • Can utilise CPVC pipe, allowing cost effective, rapid installation without special cutting equipment on the job site

Structures that may be protected by residential sprinkler systems include:

  • Single family homes
  • Multi family homes
  • Apartments and condominiums
  • Student housing/dormitories
  • Hotels

Globe offers a range of attractive residential sprinklers to suit any décor, any budget and discharge characteristics that can accommodate the most demanding water supply/pressure conditions.
