Life Safety Fire Protection

For Cold Environments with Temperatures Below 40°F

These limitations may require restricting the system size; including components, such as accelerators and exhausters; and adjusting the number of operating sprinklers.

Dry-pipe systems are the sprinkler system of choice when the piping will be exposed to temperatures below 40 degrees F. Dry sprinkler system piping does not contain any water and is charged with pressurized air, or sometimes nitrogen. When a fire occurs and generates enough heat to release the sprinklers, the air in the pipes escapes, resulting in a drop in system air pressure, which allows the dry valve to open and water to flow to the open sprinklers.

Dry-pipe fire sprinkler systems can be more complex than wet-pipe systems. Life Safety Fire Protection has in-depth experience with the special requirements of dry systems. Because of the delayed dispersal of water from the dry-pipe valve to the open sprinklers, dry systems place limits on the system design and require a reliable air supply source.
