Dry Pipe Fire Sprinkler Systems in Grand Rapids

Dry Pipe Fire Sprinkler System Maintenance & Installation in MI

For Fire Protection Services, Call (800)968-2871!

Fire sprinkler systems are the most reliable way to reduce the spread of flames, heat, and smoke in a building. You may be interested in installing sprinklers in your unheated warehouse, parking garage, loading dock, freezer storage room, or attic, but you’re worried about freezing temperatures in these unconditioned spaces.

The solution to your dilemma is to install dry pipe fire sprinklers. With professional fire sprinkler installation from Fire Pros, you can enjoy the fire protection you long for without risking burst pipes.

Fire Pros installs all types of fire sprinklers in Michigan businesses, including dry pipe systems. Contact us today!

What Is a Dry Pipe Fire Sprinkler System?

You may be familiar with wet pipe sprinklers, the most commonly installed type of fire protection equipment out there. However, these systems are only appropriate for conditioned buildings where freezing pipes aren’t an issue. Dry sprinklers aren’t at risk of freezing because the pipes remain free of water until the system is activated.

Instead of being pressurized with water, dry sprinklers are filled with air. The pressure holds a valve closed with water behind it until a fire is detected. This causes the air pressure to drop, releasing water into the pipe and out the sprinkler head.

Be aware that since water doesn’t sit immediately behind each sprinkler head, a delay of up to 60 seconds could occur between sprinkler activation and water dousing the fire. There’s a small chance that the flames could grow in size during this interim, but the delay is better than risking burst pipes or having no fire protection at all.

Testing & Maintenance Requirements for Dry Pipe Fire Sprinklers

To ensure proper performance, dry pipe sprinklers require additional testing and maintenance, including quarterly draining, annual valve trip tests, and full flow trip tests every three years. While this comes with an additional cost and time factor, it’s still more affordable than adding heating to the space.

Flow tests are required for all types of sprinklers. The difference is that after each test, water must be completely removed from the system. Even then, you must be attentive to condensation that could freeze inside the pipes.

While a tiny amount of water may seem trivial, frozen condensate can clog the sprinkler main feed, preventing the valve from tripping during a fire. Even if the valve functions properly, ice can delay or block the flow of water from the sprinkler heads. Fire Pros is experienced with testing and maintaining dry pipe fire sprinklers to prevent these types of issues.
