Deluge systems

Deluge systems employ a heat or smoke detection system that open a deluge valve when set off. The sprinklers in a deluge system work simultaneously. When activated, all sprinklers discharge water at the same time. 

​Deluge systems are:

  • Used in highly flammable, industrial locations such as chemical storage facilities.

  • Can incorporate the use of foam to form a layer of protection, cutting off the oxygen and therefore impeding the growth of the fire.
