Tyco Dry Pipe Fire Sprinkler System Diagram

Antifreeze standpipe fire sprinklers are designed for cold climates where ambient temperatures may drop below freezing causing water lines to rupture, burst or freeze.

 There have been many innovations by fire sprinkler manufacturers towards cold climate standpipe systems to allow the use of water generally known as the most plentiful and cost affordable fire extinguishing agent available. Antifreeze standpipe fire sprinklers can be designed with water present in the lines, risers, valves, fire department connections, fire hose connections and sprinkler heads with the addition of an antifreeze solution into the enclosed system.
