How Fire Sprinklers Work



Advanced Technology with a Simple Mechanism

Home fire sprinklers are very technologically advanced, but the basic way they work is very simple. Fire sprinklers have no moving parts and act simply as a water “plug” that releases at a particular temperature.

Watch a short animated movie that explains the workings of home fire sprinklers and is downloadable for your own use.



How Much Water?

Fire sprinklers use far less water than fire hoses. Watch a short animated movie you can download for your own use, that demonstrates just how little.
