Above all suppression systems (sprinklers) save lives, extinguishing fires, reducing smoke damage and smoke density, smoke inhalation is the most common cause of death in house fires.
Sprinkler systems are activated independently this means only the sprinkler over a fire will open, while the others will remain shut.
The instant, automatic response of a sprinkler systems saves on valuable evacuation time and reduces and isolates damage, reducing the risk to firefighters. The ability to be activated individually has a great environmental and economic impact.   A sprinkler system can reduce the risk to life by half, bringing a fire under control in five minutes wherever you live.  Fire rescue services can take, on average 10-12 minutes to reach a fire, dependent on its location from the fire station.  It’s possible to incorporate sprinklers into the design of your home, be it a modern contemporary new build or a traditional period home.  Sprinkler heads can be concealed or painted to blend in with your interior choice.
