How it Works

The premise behind why a wet space is not conducive to fire


Rooftop Sprinklers are a proven method of improving the chances that a building will survive a wild fire according to various studies.

When Rooftop Sprinklers are activated, they spray water high up in the air which lands on the roof, trees, and other surfaces that are within range. Some of the water evaporates, which increases the relative humidity while reducing temperatures in the microclimate. The microclimate is the area right around where the sprinklers are located. Increased humidity and reduced temperatures make the microclimate less conducive to fire. Sprinklers should be activated far in advance of when a fire is anywhere near the building. Assuming for example that three sprinklers output five gallons per minute of water, that is 15 gallons per minute. After one hour that is 900 gallons of water spread over a large area. After five hours that is 4,500 gallons of water spread over a large area. It takes a long time for sprinklers to distribute thousands of gallons of water, and every application is different in terms of the amount of water that will be distributed per minute or per hour.

Note: A fire hose can output 100 to 300 gallons per minute and is usually operated by an experienced and trained professional.

This sprinkler system will distribute water over your property if: installed correctly, activated in advance, and assuming water is flowing to the sprinklers. Rooftop Sprinklers will continue to operate without supervision. Always immediately evacuate a building in case of fire. Never stay inside of a building in case of fire. Always evacuate based on instructions from government authorities.

Temperatures in the attic, in the building, and in the surrounding area will drop. Wet roofs, trees, and roofs are less likely to ignite when a hot ember lands on them. The cumulative effect of the huge influx of water is not guaranteed to stop a fire from causing damage, but it can greatly reduce the chances of fire damage by creating a wet, cool, humid environment. Rooftop Sprinklers can be activated in seconds and they will continue to operate on their own, as long as the water is flowing and the sprinklers are working. The residents can evacuate and leave the sprinklers running.

Positioning Sprinklers is fairly straightforward and connecting them can be as simple or as elaborate as you like. Many people connect the sprinklers with just a garden hose, while others use copper pipe and braided steel hoses for a more professional look. The basic premise is that the water needs to get from the hose bib to the sprinklers, so that the water can be turned on as soon as fire is detected.
