When you operate a warehouse, a high-quality fire protection system is crucial to protecting your assets. And when your facility houses high-hazard items, such as flammable liquids, paper or exposed plastics, it’s even more important.
American Fire Protection Group designs, installs and repairs in-rack fire sprinkler systems to protect racked storage areas, such as warehouses, where early suppression fast response (ESFR) sprinkler systems cannot be employed. While these sprinklers will not prevent a fire from starting – in fact, they rely on heat and smoke generated to trigger them – they will help contain the fire to a specific area and extinguish it in a short amount of time.
Installed along a network of piping secured within rack structures, in-rack sprinklers release water into targeted areas, minimizing damage and downtime for the entire facility. With detectors in close proximity to stored materials and equipment, the system continuously monitors for smoke and heat to provide the quickest possible response in the event of a fire. In-rack sprinklers from AFPG are ideal for facilities that use large industrial shelving, because they ensure fires that begin in the middle of the rack can be extinguished before consuming materials on shelves or racks.
