Aspects taken into account when installing a domestic fire sprinkler in Singapore
Domestic fire sprinklers are specifically designed for the residential environment.
The entire pipework is concealed in the walls and floors, while the sprinklers have small dimensions, being neat and blending with the surroundings of the rooms.
These systems are purchased in a wide range of colors and finishes and nowadays even concealed models can be found.
The heads of the sprinkler systems in Singapore are connected by our plumbers in Singapore by a pipe system to the water mains or other water sources.
Usually, rooms need one or two sprinkler heads to facilitate a complete protection.
The installation procedure of such systems is very similar to setting up central heating, however with less pipework, therefore smaller disruption.
Obviously, a domestic fire sprinkler in Singapore needs a correct and reliable water supply. This is usually obtained from the water mains, however, sometimes, it has to be stored on site.
Types of domestic fire sprinklers in Singapore
There are two types of fire sprinklers in Singapore:
1. Wet pipe systems: they can be used in homes where there is no risk of freezing. This type of system is created to be continuously charged with water and to have a permanent water stream in case of a fire. It is the most popular type of domestic fire sprinkler set up by our plumber in Singapore;
2. Dry pipe systems: such a system is connected to a source of water which is filled with compressed air. They still provide an automatic protection, however the valve has to be triggered prior to the water flooding into the pipes. This type of fire sprinklers is recommended by our Singapore plumbing professionals to decrease the risk of overfilling and bursting of the pipes.
