ThisWeekInFM.com has released an article discussing the advantages of sprinklers as fire protection systems. The article entitled ‘Sprinkler Systems VS Smoke Control: The EN 12101-5 Approach’ assesses the effectiveness of these systems working both separately and in conjunction with one another.
Sprinkler systems are a popular method for reducing the risk of fire spread in a plethora of different buildings. A sprinkler system aids the fire brigade by ensuring that the flames remain small and don’t rise to a point of danger or create a risk of death for those in a close proximity.
The article recommends “the adoption of a fire-engineered approach that determines what’s appropriate on a site-by-site, situation-by-situation basis”, recognising the effectiveness of sprinkler systems in controlling fires and allowing them to be extinguished by firefighters with minimal damage to a property.
