During the past nineteen years we have spent countless hours developing comprehensive sprinkler system to protect buildings of all styles, methods of construction and size. To achieve this we have used latest plumbing industry standards and high quality, durable materials along with resources from various authorities and companies involved in bushfire research. We are trained fire fighters and apply that training to continually improve our product and help advise our customers on property protection.
In developing this system our aim was to be able to identify, calculate and prove all of the variables at the costing stage to eliminate problems prior to installation.
We determine the numbers of sprinklers required and then calculate water requirements, pipe sizes, system operating pressures (allowing for friction and head loss) and system running times.
Using these results we can determine the pump specification. The pump selected will run at approximately 80% capacity to ensure that it performs efficiently during the extreme temperatures associated with bushfires. The system consists of a roof or fascia mounted copper pipeline mounted on insulated brackets with brass sprinklers and fittings. The pump can be either a petrol or diesel powered unit, housed in a vented protective metal cover, cooled and protected by its own sprinkler.
Development of the physical characteristics of the system was undertaken aiming to provide a system, which performs reliably, at an affordable price. This has led to the use of specialized equipment to expedite the installation procedure, and the design and sourcing of specialized components from various manufacturers.
