While you are most definitely aware that there are sprinkler systems that protect you in almost every commercial building you enter, did you know there are actually different types of sprinkler systems? The two most commonly used systems are the wet fire sprinkler and the dry fire sprinkler systems. It’s common knowledge wet sprinkler systems utilize water. But what are dry fire sprinkler systems? As experts in fire suppression we are here to provide information about what a dry fire suppression system can do for your Cleveland business. And, when you’re ready to protect your commercial facility or business against the threat of fire, entrust us for all of your fire suppression needs.

Many people think “water” in order to douse a fire however certain types of businesses require chemical compounds or a dry fire suppression system to prevent damage from water. Business such as data centers, homes of high-tech electronic gadgetry, art galleries and more can all benefit from a dry fire suppression system. This fire suppression system is waterless and has additional benefits over a water-based system.

Fragile equipment and documents all need protection. And that includes insurance policies, business licenses, contracts, etc. Water-based fire suppression systems can damage computers, servers and critical documents. The implementation of a dry fire suppression system allows instead for the protection of electronic equipment and documents, resulting in less time in recovery from fire.

Dry systems are also ideal for use in structures where temperatures will reach freezing. If and when temperatures drop below freezing, the pipes are not in danger of freezing as they are with their wet sprinkler system counterparts.
