Storage (Suppression) Sprinklers

Storage Suppression Sprinklers

Storage, or suppression, automatic sprinklers are sprinklers that have been categorized as acceptable for protecting storage type occupancies and any other occupancy hazards characterized by high heat-release rate fires. These tend to be sprinklers that discharge large quantities of water in order to have a significant impact on the fire. FM Approvals has been at the forefront of developing this technology since its inception in the 1970s.

Automatic sprinklers that are FM Approved offer the complete range of all sprinkler characteristics needed to properly design a sprinkler system so that the sprinkler selected is capable of providing adequate fire protection for the intended occupancy.
