Deluge Sprinkler Systems

Deluge Sprinkler Systems

Similar to Preaction Sprinkler Systems Deluge systems have a detection line however all the sprinklers are open ended. Upon detection a deluge valve is opened allowing water to flow through all sprinklers simultaneously. Manual operation is also achieved by mechanical activation of an emergency pull station. Such systems are used to protect equipment or areas where rapid fire protection is required such as protection of Oil Filled Transformers. With the introduction of the Building Act and alternative solutions such systems are used for fire separations and to assist with means of escape.
