Water sprinkler systems
Tyco Fire & Integrated Solutions has a broad range of knowledge and experience in the application of sprinkler systems throughout many market sectors in the world. Tyco installed its first commercially available sprinkler system back in 1878 and, since then, has been in the constant development of new sprinklers.
Wet-valve sprinkler systems from Tyco are permanently charged with water and used to protect premises where temperatures are unlikely to fall below freezing point. They are designed to operate electric, and/or hydraulic alarms when there is a steady flow of water into the system that is equivalent to the discharge rate of one or more sprinklers.
The type of sprinkler nozzle, its discharge pattern and flow rate are all pre-determined by the hazard classification of the type of fire risk involved. A typical wet-valve sprinkler system comprises of a control valve, sprinkler discharge heads and a dedicated water-supply system.
The size of the valve, its flow rate and the system water supply pressure and air pressure are all determined by the size and type of fire risk involved.
