A highly responsive system which is triggered with smoke or heat detectors in places oil refineries or chemical plants.

Simply stated: Fire sprinkler systems save lives and property which far outweighs the cost in potential insurance claims or loss of life. Don’t let your countless hours invested in your businesses success literally go up in smoke.

Fire Sprinklers Work 24/7

A fire sprinkler system can prevent a fire from spreading and destroying when you or your employees are not around to mitigate a fire.

Fire Sprinklers Save on Insurance Premiums

Building or business owners, depending on the type of building they have, can receive discounts on insurance premiums ranging from 10% to 60%. These savings alone can pay for the fire sprinkler system.

Fire Damage Costs More than Water Damage

Fire sprinklers typically release 24 gallons of water per minute compared to a fire hose’s 150 gallons of water per minute. A fireman’s job is to use as much water to douse the flames while a sprinkler system’s job is to douse the flames as locally as possible. Fires cause many millions more in structural damage, loss, and employee productivity than water damage from sprinkler systems. At iProtection Systems, we’ll work with you to develop with right fire protection plan with the right sprinkler types to protect your property.
