We want you to know everything there is to know about how a fire sprinkler works and why it’s critical to have one installed in case of a fire.
First, forget what you’ve been told about fire sprinklers being triggered by smoke. Fire sprinkler systems are triggered by heat. Hot air rises, and when a blaze ignites, the air directly above it heats rapidly.
Each sprinkler head is attached to a pipe that is connected to a water source outside of the building. Pressurized water from the pipe system is able to flow out easily when activated. It’s important for the water to be pressurized for it to spray outward in an arc to more thoroughly douse a fire and prevent it from reigniting.
A fire sprinkler can also save your building from water damage as well. If you think all fire sprinkler systems activate at the same time, you’re incorrect. This isn’t true for Aura Fire Safety sprinklers. Fire sprinklers should be putting out the fires but not add water damage to an already stressful situation.
Fortunately, Aura’s sprinklers operate individually. Most fires can be extinguished after just one or two sprinklers activate. This allows water damage to be confined to the smallest area possible. Also, since fire sprinklers douse fires by only using a sixth of the water that a fire hose uses, it’s less damaging to your property and more cost-effective.
Aura’s contractors are well-versed in fire sprinkler installation. Fire sprinkler requirements can be rather confusing to understand; they make sure the process is as painless as possible. Work ranges from whole house systems to those adding sprinklers for popular ADU units. Aura also update existing systems with new sprinkler heads.

Aura has also a very informative blog, in which they go into more detail as to why a fire sprinkler is a necessity in every building.
