Northern California Fire Sprinkler Design & Installation
Fire Protection Solutions for Homes and Businesses
It only takes a few precious minutes for a fire to cause irrevocable damage to your home or business, and all too often, it happens in such a way that human response is limited. If a fire breaks out right in front of you, you may be able to douse it quickly with a fire extinguisher, but what if you’re asleep in your home, it’s the result of an accident after hours at work, or the fire expands so quickly that someone is trapped?
This is where automated fire protection solutions such as sprinklers play a critical role. By removing the need for human intervention and automating a decisive response, you can protect your home or business against any fire threat. The team at Foothill Fire Protection has the tools and experience necessary to provide any home or business with the protection you need.

Frequently Asked Questions About Fire Sprinklers
Fire sprinklers respond to reaching a particular temperature that indicates a fire, typically 135 to 165 degrees Fahrenheit. They do not respond to smoke.
In your typical sprinkler design, a fusible piece blocks the flow of water from the sprinkler head and will either melt or break upon reaching the sprinkler’s trigger point.
Sprinklers don’t all go off in response to one going off the way they do in movies. A localized fire will likely trigger one or two sprinklers to start spraying water. Other sprinklers will remain blocked by unbroken fusible elements, preventing unnecessary water damage.
Because fire sprinklers only go off in response to actual fires, it’s safe to assume that the water damage caused by sprinklers will always be less than the damage caused by said fire.
Sprinklers might soak a single room, but the fire they extinguish could have spread to other rooms or even the whole building and reduced your home’s or business’s belongings to ash. Fire sprinklers also significantly reduce the loss of life seen in buildings without working sprinkler systems.
If you operate a manufacturing facility, warehouse, or hospital, fire suppression systems can achieve similar results with chemicals like FM-200, preventing any water damage to critical equipment and computers. Work with a professional fire protection company to determine the right fire suppression system for your commercial property’s needs.
It’s extremely rare for fire sprinklers to go off by accident, as they’re generally set up with fusible elements that only respond to temperatures that would indicate a fire.
When fire sprinklers do go off unintentionally, it almost always occurs due to human error or malicious acts, intentional exposure of the sprinkler head to high heat, accidental or negligent damage of the sprinkler head breaking the fusible element, etc.
Simple failures within normal operations are almost completely unheard of, especially with proper maintenance and testing.
