An Automatic sprinkler activate itself in event of fire When one or more of the automatic sprinkler heads is triggered and water will discharge. Wet sprinkler systems are the most common type of sprinkler system installed. A wet pipe system has water in the pipes in the ambient or normal condition and has heat responsive elements on all sprinklers. Thus, water is instantaneously discharged from a sprinkler when it actuates.
Why do we need a sign FDC in the building ?
The FDC ( Fire department connection sign) is a sign that help the fire department to quickly find the FDC to connect to the fire pump truck and this connection allows the fire department to supplement the fire protection system in the event of a fire.
What is FDC ?
The Fire Department Connection (FDC), also known as the Siamese Connection, is an important component found on most sprinkler and standpipe systems. When a sprinkler system activates, the fire department connects hose lines from a pumper truck to the fire department connection. This connection allows the fire department to supplement the fire protection system in the event of a fire.
Fire Sprinkler Signs- The signs are designed to identify different controls and pipes for fire sprinkler systems in your facility. A fire sprinkler or sprinkler head is the component of a fire sprinkler system that discharges water when the effects of a fire have been detected. Many states require owners to install clear signs identifying the different types of fire sprinklers used.
There are various types of fire systems. 4 of them are described below:
Dry Pipe Sprinkler system-Dry pipe sprinklers are similar to pre-action systems as they use pressurized air in the pipe which exits before water escapes. This causes a minute delay in water discharge but is ideal for buildings with low temperatures so the pipes do not freeze. These fire sprinkler systems have a fast opening tool to get rid of the air and speed up the flow of water. Warehouses located in the north are a good example of what buildings should use dry pipe sprinklers.
Wet Pipe Sprinkler system-Wet pipe fire sprinklers constantly have water in them. This allows for a quick reaction to a fire and is the most common type of sprinkler installed in buildings. A type of building that uses the wet pipe system is a high-rise or office building with a few floors. This fire sprinkler system is cost efficient and low maintenance.
Pre-action fire sprinkler system-Pre-action fire sprinkler systems are filled with air and water is allowed to pass through when the smoke alarm or detector goes off. This type of system requires two triggers to start water flow. It helps greatly that the pre-action fire sprinkler can be set to prevent water from spouting in case of a false alarm or a mechanical failure. The pre-action system is good for use in places where the sprinklers are only necessary when there is an actual fire so other items in the building do not get water damage from an accidental sprinkling. Such buildings include libraries and data centers. These places contain items of high value like electronics and goods damageable by water such as books
Deluge Fire Sprinkler -These types of fire sprinkler systems also need a smoke or heat detector like the pre-action system. A deluge system has open nozzles that can be used when a hazard is present. When flammable liquids are spread across a floor, deluge fire sprinklers are good to have. In that case, buildings such as industrial parks and buildings with many tanks have deluge fire sprinkler systems installed.
Automatic sprinkler signs – the signs are designed to inform 1st respondents of the sprinkler system at hand. Automatic Fire Sprinkler Systems present a network of water-filled pipes which starts at domestic water service lines and ends with strategically spaced fire sprinkler heads located throughout pertinent building.
What is an FDC? FDC is defined as Fire Department Connection. The fire department requires owners to put clear signs indicating where the FDC in the building is. Fdc signs need to be clear and easy to read with strong contrast between the letters and background.
FDC SIGNS- FIRE DEPARTMENT CONNECTION SIGNS:
FDC STANDS FOR FIRE DEPARTMENT CONNECTION. The FDC signs are designed to inform the 1st respondends of the location of the fire department connection in case of fire. The FDC is a connection on the exterior of a commercial building, where a responding fire department can attach a fire hose and pump water into the building's standpipe system supplementing the water pressure to the buidling's sprinkler system
What is the purpose of FDC? The Fire Department Connection, also commonly known as the Siamese connection, is an important component found on most sprinkler and standpipe systems. When a fire sprinkler system activates, the FDC provides a means for firefighters to connect hose lines to supplement the fire sprinkler system's domestic water supply
What is the most common type of FDC connection? One of the most common FDCs, known as a Siamese or two-way connection, has two 2 1/2-inch female swivel connections. NFPA requires that all fire department connections use 2 1/2" National Hose (NH) threaded female couplings unless the authority having jurisdiction designates another specific connection type
