Using sprinkler systems in your home

Benefits of sprinklers in the home

Sprinklers provide a high level of protection from the risk of dying in a fire. They are particularly suitable for older people and those who have an impairment, injury or difficulty moving around.   

It's important to have a smoke alarm as well as a sprinkler system. A smoke alarm will alert you to slow-burning, smoke-generating fires which may not produce enough heat to trigger a sprinkler.

The main benefits of sprinklers are:

  • they can be fitted in as many rooms as you like
  • they're individually heat-activated, so they don't all go off at once
  • they need high temperatures to trigger them so don't go off accidentally
  • they operate automatically, whether you’re at home or not
  • they sound an alarm to alert you as well as tackling the fire
