What would happen if you had two rooms that were exactly alike, except for the fact that one had a fire sprinkler system in place and the other room did not? Research and evidence has shown just exactly how effective sprinkler systems can be at reducing the loss of life and property damage when a fire breaks out accidentally.
A room or an area that is not protected by a fire sprinkler will be completely engulfed in flames within a matter of minutes. On the other hand, the other room with a fire sprinkler can come out relatively untouched. Businesses and homes with a fire sprinkler will experience minor damage done to the room and the property inside of it and have a much better chance statistically because the sprinkler will be able to put out the fire much faster than waiting for the fire department to arrive, not to mention those situations when no one is around, and a fire breaks out.
On the other hand, the room without a sprinkler system can become completely destroyed. More importantly than saving furniture and property, fire sprinklers can also save lives.
