We recommend that automatic sprinkler systems are fitted where appropriate, in both business premises and in our homes.

Information gathered from every Fire Service in the UK shows that sprinkler systems:

  • contain or put out the fire in 99% of cases
  • reduce damage to residential properties by 75%
  • reduce damage to non-residential properties by around 50%
  • are very reliable – the probability that a system will operate as it should is 94% across all buildings
