Peninsula Fire Protection utilizes primarily domestic products and offers the following types of fire protection systems.

  • Wet Pipe Systems
    A wet sprinkler system is fixed fire protection using piping filled with pressurized water supplied from a dependable source. Closed heat sensitive automatic sprinklers spaced and located in accordance with recognized installation standards are used to detect a fire. Upon operation, the sprinklers distribute the water over a specific area to control or extinguish the fire. As the water flows through the system, an alarm is activated to indicate the system is operating. Only those sprinklers immediately over or adjacent to the fire operate, minimizing water damage.

  • Dry Pipe Systems
    Dry Check Valve Systems are specified where exposed piping might freeze. In a dry system the piping between the valve and sprinklers is filled with pressurized air or nitrogen rather than water. A sprinkler head opening causes air pressure to drop. When the pressure deteriorates in the pipes sufficiently, the valve clapper is allowed to open, flooding the lines with water. An accelerator and anti-flood device can be added to the system to speed the valve opening in large systems. The water flow can also trip an electric or water motor alarm to alert occupants.

  • Deluge Systems
    A Deluge Check Valve System is specified when curtains of water need to be delivered to the area. The system utilizes an open type sprinkler and pressurized lines that fill with water when the fixed detection system is activated. A Deluge system is activated when the fixed release is tripped by heat from a fire, this action releases pressure from the lines which opens the pneumatic actuator. The clapper opens and allows water to enter the pipe lines activating the electric alarm and/or the water motor alarm causing water to be distributed from all sprinklers. Typical applications include tank farms, aircraft hangers, chemical plants, tire warehouses, tunnels, and power plants. Available configurations include Wet Pilot, Dry Pilot, and Electrical Activation. Learn more ...
  • Pre-Action Systems
    In preaction applications, reliability is essential. A premature water response could be as disastrous as a fire. In a preaction system, the pipe lines are precharged with pressurized air. Water is held from the piping by an electrically actuated solenoid. The solenoid is activated by an alarm signal and water is distributed to the site after a sprinkler is heat-activated. If an alarm system detects smoke, for example, the valve opens to fill system piping. If temperatures rise from an actual fire, the sprinkler bulb bursts to distribute water immediately. False alarms are minimized in a Preaction System by requiring two events to occur before the system is activated. Depending on setup, a sprinkler broken by accident will not trigger the system. Typical applications include art museums, libraries, historic/archive spaces, computer rooms, hospitals, and schools. Configurations include Non-Interlock (electric or pneumatic), Single Interlock (electric or pneumatic), Double Interlock (pneumatic electric, electric-pneumatic electric, or pneumatic-pneumatic).

  • Fire Pump Systems
    A fire pump is an integral component of a total fire protection system. A fire protection system at a facility may include automatic sprinkler systems, standpipes, hose stations, and/ or fire hydrants. The purpose of a fire pump is to provide or enhance the water supply pressure from public mains, suction tanks, gravity/elevated tanks, lakes, and other bodies of water. Learn more ...
