SFPE Perspective Series Sponsored Webinar: Sprinkler Systems of the Future: The Benefit of Electronic Sprinklers 


Presented by Zachary Magnone, P.E., Director – Innovation & New Ventures, Tyco and Jeremiah Crocker, Manager – New Ventures, Tyco


The hazard level of buildings is constantly increasing due to logistical/operational demands, aesthetic desires and structural innovation. However, innovation with fire sprinkler systems has been incremental and is resulting in fire sprinklers being the limiting factor for building design and operations. Tyco Fire Protection Products embarked in a research project to determine the benefits provided by include electronics as part of the fire sprinkler system. The technology has proved to provide benefits in reducing required total water supplies as compared with current technology, increased speed in sprinkler activation and reduction sprinkler activation area. The research focused on medium and full scale fire testing of cartoned unexpanded plastic and exposed expanded plastic.


Learning Objectives:

  1. The basic components of an electronically controlled sprinkler system
  2. The technological benefits of electronic sprinklers and detection technology
  3. The implications on the technical benefits on system design
  4. Potential applications for the technology
  5. Technical, commercial, and regulatory challenges
