Magnum Fire Protection has trained and certified sprinkler fitters. We have certified technicians to handle all your water based fire prevention system needs.

Our experienced technicians are equipped with the skill and knowledge to work on all systems, old and new.  We change piping designs, relocate sprinklers and convert systems to meet a new design as per applicable Code.

Wet Systems: A system with piped water distribution. It is connected by heat sensors that is activated in case of fire. A properly functioning system will suppress an active fire and minimize water damages.

Dry Systems: Operate on a similar premise as a wet system whereby automatic sprinkler heads hold close the system with a heat-sensitive device. With a dry system, water is not held within the piping system.  Dry systems are commonly used in areas where ambient temperatures present a risk of freezing water in a wet system. In a dry system, the pipes are filled with pressurized air and are sealed in by the sprinkler heads. In the event of a fire, the sprinkler head activates and the air pressure is lost when opening a valve to accelerate water flow to the affected area to spray out on the flames and activate the alarm.

Pre-action Systems: Are dry systems, but are specially designed for areas where accidental activation is undesirable due to a potential for loss of sensitive or expensive product or equipment within the sprinkler coverage area. This system is complex and more costly to install and maintain, but it prevents accidental discharge of water which can cause loss of valuable products.

Retrofit: Is when a layout of a space is changed the sprinkler system should be designed to meet the new changes, as per the applicable Codes. This change is called the retro fitting of sprinkler systems. This option opposed to changing the whole system enables our customers to save on costs. We strongly stand by all our recommendations and suggested rectification of deficiencies.

Fire pumps: Supply pressurized water to the sprinkler systems and are most commonly powered by electricity. The optimum pressure should be maintained to prevent sprinklers heads from being activated.
