Fire Suppression Systems

 

Fire Sprinkler Systems

DIMAR Systems has extensive design, installation and maintenance experience in all types of the Fire Sprinkler Systems.  If you need design, installation or troubleshooting of a Fire Sprinkler System, please contact us, and we will send our experts to your facility to discuss your needs.

Fire Sprinkler systems are cornerstone for building fire protection.  With 24/7 protection, Fire Sprinkler Systems are highly reliable and operate automatically.  They are very cost effective, and very effective at controlling a fire.  Fire Sprinkler Systems are typically require by municipal fire codes for many private and public buildings, such as schools and churches.


All Fire Sprinkler Systems consist of a water source, (usually city water supply), or a reservoir tank, and a booster pump.  Special, lightweight piping is installed throughout your facility typically above the ceiling.  Pipe extensions drop down into each fire hazard area and are capped with heat-sensing sprinkler heads.  These heads operate automatically, sensing the heat from a fire that is beginning in that area and opening up, spraying water on the fire. 


Unlike the movies, sprinkler systems only operate in the area where there is a fire, not throughout the whole building, unless needed.  Fire Sprinkler Systems are also connected to your fire alarm system; the presence of a fire and sprinkler operation is automatically detected, fire alarm horns and strobes are activated to evacuate the area, and your fire department is dispatched to your facility.


There are several types of Fire Sprinkler systems -

The Wet Pipe design is the most common.  Used indoors where temperatures are controlled so that water freezing can’t take place, this system’s piping is always full of pressurized water, standing by ready to activate in case of a fire detected by each sprinkler head. 


Dry Pipe Sprinkler System: similar to wet pipe design, but no water is kept in the piping.  These pipes are filled with compressed air or nitrogen. If a sprinkler head pops open the piping looses pressure and a water valve actuates, also turning on the booster pump and flooding the pipes with water.  The reaction time is slightly slower than a wet pipe system, but these systems are still very effective, and are commonly used in unheated warehouses where freezing of water would normally take place.


Deluge Sprinkler System: Similar to a wet pipe system, but sprinkler heads are not heat sensitive, they  are open at all the time.  A deluge fire sprinkler uses a fire alarm system to monitor the presence of a fire, which causes a valve to open and release the water to all the sprinkler heads. Once the valve opens, it won’t shut off until it is manually turned off.  Deluge Fire Sprinkler Systems are used where the fire hazard is very high and the possibility of a fire spreading is high, such as in a plastics or chemical storage warehouse.


Pre-action Sprinkler System: A pre-action fire sprinkler system uses the dry pipe design, so no water is present in the piping, until a fire is detected.  Water then flows to the sprinkler heads but they are closed until they sense heat and only then do they pop open. These systems are used at facilities where serious water damage of products could take place in the event of accidental fire sprinkler activation.

Foam Fire Suppression Systems

DIMAR Systems is certified and has extensive design, installation and maintenance experience in Aqueous Foam Fire Suppression Systems. 

Foam Fire Suppression Systems are very effective is suppressing specialized fires.  They work by creating a barrier between the fuel and the air, which contains the oxygen needed maintain a fire. 


Traditional Fire Sprinkler Systems are not used when the fire hazard consists of flammable liquids such as gasoline or diesel fuel, as they tend to spread the flammable liquid. 


Foam Fire Suppression Systems use a chemical that when mixed with water and distributed through nozzles forms a rapidly expanding aqueous foam, (AFF) that is dropped or sprayed into the fire, separating the oxygen from the fuel and suppressing the fire. 


Foam Fire Suppression Systems are used in petrochemical refineries, aircraft maintenance hangers, and chemical manufacturing facilities.  Local fire departments often use mobile Foam Suppression Systems at airports.   


We can help you identify the safest and most cost effective suppression system for your facility.  We will provide a turnkey design, installation code compliance and commissioning of these specialized systems.  We can also inspect, test, maintain, upgrade, and re-certify your existing Foam Suppression System.

Clean Agent Fire Suppression Systems

DIMAR Systems is certified and has extensive design, installation and maintenance experience in Clean Agent Fire Suppression Systems. 


When a Clean Agent System senses a fire, it disperses an inert gas that fills a room or area displacing oxygen from the fire and suppressing or extinguishing the fire.  No water is used, so there is no damage to the contents of the facility. 


Clean Agent Systems are used in high value content facilities such as hospital, manufacturing plants, computer server rooms and missile assembly facilities.  Often they are used in an area to protect sensitive electronic and document rooms while Fire Sprinkler Systems are used elsewhere in the building.


Clean Agent Systems work in harmony with Fire Alarm Systems, keeping people safe, suppressing fires and minimizing damage.


For many years HALON 1301 was the industry standard and are still legal to operate in many cases.  But newer, more environmentally safe, non toxic systems are being installed such as Inergen, FM-200 or the NOVEC 1230 Clean Agent Fire Suppression Systems.


These systems deploy fast and suppress fires quickly, to minimize fire damage, reduce downtime for your company.  There is no chemical or water clean up so getting back to your work is much quicker.


We can identify the safest and most cost effective Clean Agent System for your facility.  We will provide a turnkey design, installation, code compliance and commissioning of these life saving systems.  We can also inspect, test, maintain, and recertify your existing Clean Agent Fire Suppression System.
