Webinar: Sustainable Protection With Residential Fire Sprinkler Systems
Lake City, Colo., Nov. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Whether you need to meet the fire sprinkler mandate in your jurisdiction or want to add a life-safety upgrade that also helps conserve water, there’s a smart solution that really works for builders, contractors and homeowners alike.
Ingrid Mattsson, director of sustainable brand development, Uponor North America, notes that a combined plumbing and fire sprinkler system makes a lot of sense for builders. “With more jurisdictions across the country requiring fire sprinklers in homes, a multipurpose system is a smart solution for builders. It can save on installation and materials costs compared to a separate plumbing and fire sprinkler system, and oftentimes the fire sprinklers can be installed by the builder’s trusted plumber already on the job.”
Plus, it gives builders an opportunity to differentiate their houses, particularly with the recent heavy press given to natural disasters.
However, it isn’t just the changing climate and wildfires that are prompting people to use fire sprinklers. It is also important to have them because of the synthetics in today’s home decor. Synthetics burn faster and hotter than natural materials. “Smoke detectors are important, but fires happen so quickly in homes,” Mattson notes. “Fires used to take about 15 minutes to flash over, and now it’s three minutes. Fire sprinklers save structures, yes, but more important, they give you time to exit the house.
In this presentation, Eric Skare, Innovation Manager, Uponor, will explain how a fire sprinkler system can:
-- Benefit builders, installers, and homeowners -- Meet codes and mandates (in place now or coming with the next code cycle) -- Save significant amounts of water -- Reduce the amount of building materials required for a job -- Save lives!
