 Los Angeles Wet Standpipe Sprinkler Systems

 Water is one of the most cost effective and affordable fire extinguishing agents available.

Standpipe in Multi-Story Building with Many Floors

 Wet standpipe systems have water in the pipes at all times, they are quick to respond to fire emergencies as there is not a delay in the water reaching fire sprinkler heads, fire department connections or fire hose connections.

 Wet standpipe fire sprinklers are one of the most common types of standpipe systems to install due to the systems simplicity and the affordable supply of parts, valves, risers, sprinkler heads and components. Due to the fact there are fewer moving parts of the wet standpipe fire sprinkler system it will generally cost less to install, service, maintain, test or inspect as will be required by Federal, State, OSHA, Insurance Companies or the City of Los Angeles safety, building and fire codes.

Standpipe systems are designed and engineered to deliver an adequate pressurized volume of water to each of the designated fire department connections (FDC) to attach fire hose connections aiding building occupants or the Los Angeles fire department in fighting a fire. This allows firefighters easy access to fire department connections on every story and floor of a building or to isolated buildings, structures or facilities. A valve will easily open all fire department connections plumbed in that zone and supply a pressurized volume of water to all connections.

Standpipe Fire Protection Systems

Wet Standpipe Fire Sprinklers in Los Angeles

 Standpipe systems play an important role in protecting multi-floor, multi-story, large facilities, yards, structures or buildings in Los Angeles. Standpipe systems may have installed vertical sprinkler pipes known as "risers" and horizontal sprinkler pipes installed throughout the building or facility. Fire pumps may be used to increase water pressure, increasing the PSI of water is referred to as “total head”, sprinkler systems work best when there is an adequate pressurized water supply to feed fire sprinkler systems and standpipe sprinkler systems. Water tanks can be installed on the roof of a building allowing gravity to assist increasing water pressure this is called a gravity fed pressurized system.

Wet standpipe sprinklers are one of the most common types of fire sprinklers to install due to the systems simplicity and the affordable supply of parts, valves, risers, sprinkler heads and components.
