Sprinkler System Installation
A fire can arise in mere moments. Whether their source is criminal, electrical or accidental, they can ravage buildings quickly if the flames are not immediately brought under control. Without a sprinkler system, what starts as a minor cooking accident can suddenly become a raging inferno, endangering lives and causing irreparable material damage.
A sprinkler system can extinguish the initial flames, thereby preventing a fire from spreading. Guard-X Inc. installs sprinkler systems for homes, commercial and residential buildings.
WHY INSTALL A SPRINKLER SYSTEM?
First, it is important to understand a fire’s structure. A fire is composed of three elements: fuel (alcohol, oil), oxidizer (oxygen) and a source of heat (flame, spark, etc.).
A sprinkler system is designed to control the heat source, preventing a spark from turning into a wild blaze. These systems are automatically triggered once the heat activates one of the sprinkler’s thermal elements. This automatic system requires no manual action on the part of the building’s residents, and can therefore subdue fires no matter the situation.
