The Importance of Fire Sprinklers
Sprinklers are a vital part of any fire protection system. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), fire sprinklers reduce injury rates by 27% and reduce loss of life by 89%. They also operate correctly in 92% of structure fires large enough to activate them and effectively control the blaze 96% of the time.

Frequently Asked Questions About Commercial Fire Sprinkler Systems
Does my business need a fire sprinkler system?
While the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) sets the standards for fire safety, most rules and regulations are determined by local municipalities and jurisdictions.
Pennsylvania businesses are governed by Section (F) 903.1 of the state’s Chapter 9 Fire Protection Systems code for automatic sprinklers, which covers installation, monitoring, testing, and maintenance requirements.
How do commercial fire sprinkler systems work?
The sprinkler system pipes in your building’s walls and ceilings store water. The sprinkler heads have a fusible link that melts from the fire’s heat. When the link melts away, the sprinkler head opens and evenly sprays water or chemicals to ensure the flames are extinguished.
Do all sprinkler heads go off at the same time?
Each head in a commercial fire sprinkler system is individually activated. So, the entire system won’t be activated if a fire breaks out in a storage room. The only heads triggered are those in the storage area.
Are commercial fire sprinkler systems expensive to maintain?
By scheduling regular maintenance for your facility’s sprinkler system, you avoid expensive repairs in the future.
Do fire sprinklers detect smoke?
No. Most commercial fire sprinklers detect and react to heat, not smoke. This means smoke from cigarettes, vape pens, and burning food will not set off a fire sprinkler.
Do fire sprinklers run on electricity?
Not usually. All fire sprinkler systems rely on water pressure, but only some require electricity to operate a fire pump, which supplies water to each sprinkler head. For this reason, your system may or may not require a backup power source.
Can fire sprinklers go off accidentally?
Yes. Anything that breaks the glass bulb or melts the fusible link in a sprinkler head will start the flow of water. Fire sprinklers can be concealed behind a cover plate to protect against accidental impact without compromising fire safety.
