THE BOTTOM LINE

A water-based sprinkler system forces water so that it can penetrate closed cabinets and travels through the various components of sophisticated electronic machinery.

You may want to combine a concealed sprinkler head with an open solenoid valve and keep it in a ceiling cavity for storing the cold water.

When the specified heat level is reached, the sprinkler head releases the cold water into the cavity. This ensures that the residents are not aware of a covert fire protection system installed on their property.

Since sprinkler heads are automatically triggered by fire at certain temperatures, only one or two sprinkler heads is fully capable of containing and extinguishing a fire in the room where it broke out.

As the sprinkler head reacts to heat, only the ones fitted in the fire-affected areas are activated as and when required.
