Fire is fast. A fire can become deadly in less than 2 minutes. Synthetic materials burn quickly and produce deadly, poisonous smoke. New homes built with unprotected, lightweight construction materials burn faster and fail more quickly in a fire.
If you are building a new home, you can protect your family and the environment with home fire sprinklers. Through fast and automatic action, fire sprinklers reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 98%, they reduce fire damage by up to 97%, they reduce water usage to fight a home fire by as much as 91%, and they reduce pollutants found in waste water.**
Less fire, less smoke, less water, and less pollution. Now that’s smart!
With concealing covers, modern fire sprinklers practically disappear into ceilings and walls.
Home fire sprinklers provide affordable fire protection for you and your family. On average fire sprinklers cost $1.35 per square foot of sprinklered space in new construction*.
Just like plumbing, electrical and other systems, home fire sprinkler installation is paid for over time in your mortgage. And most insurance companies provide a generous discount on insurance for sprinklered homes.
