How a Home Fire Sprinkler system works
Sprinklers are connected along a network of piping, usually hidden in your walls or ceilings. Each sprinkler operates individually. They do NOT all operate at once. Sprinklers operate in response to the heat of a fire, they are not activated by smoke or smoke alarms.
The technology behind a sprinkler is fairly simple. Many home sprinklers are hidden beneath a cover. These covers are heat sensitive and “fall-off” once they are exposed to temperatures of approximately 130o F. Beneath the cover is hidden the sprinkler. Home sprinklers generally contain a small glass tube that is also temperature sensitive. Once the temperature reaches between 135o-165 o F the glass tube bursts, releasing water. A small metal deflector hanging below the water orifice deflects the water over the fire.
When a fire starts in a room the heat and smoke quickly rise to the ceiling. Even small fires will quickly reach the sprinkler activation temperature of 135o-165 o F. Once that temperature is reached the sprinkler reacts to the fire. Again, they react individually to heat and not to smoke of smoke alarms. Most times 1 or 2 sprinkler heads is all it will take to put out the fire.
