Going Green

We are aware of the ecological benefits

We are proud of the fact that the fire sprinkler industry was "green" before it was fashionable.

  • If a fire burns out of control prompting intervention by the local fire department, it's going to require a substantial amount of water. Fire hoses, on average, use more than eight times the water that sprinklers use to contain a fire, according the the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition.

  • According to the Scottsdale Report, a 15-year study of fire sprinkler effects, the typical sprinkler system will use 341 gallons of water. In comparison, a firefighter's hose will use roughly 2,935 gallons in a single fire. One of the reasons for this is that nearly 90 percent of fires are extinguished by the operation of just one sprinkler, as documented by the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition.

  • The reduced amount of water consumption equates to less groundwater runoff. Those thousands of gallons of water from the firefighter's hoses have to flow somewhere. And they do -- right into groundwater supplies -- along with all the toxins and debris that are disbursed from the fire.

  • A fire sprinkler system reduces the amount of toxins being released into the air. The effects on air quality from burning polyester, insulation and dry wall, not to mention all types of cleaners and chemicals add to the toxicity of a fire.  It's not just the smoke that's harmful, but also the microscopic particles that are being blown into the air. Commercial fire sprinklers have proven to contain and often extinguish a fire in less time than it would take the fire department to arrive on the scene. That minimizes the amount of time the structure and contents are burning and pouring black gritty smoke.
