HOME FIRE SPRINKLERS
BLAZESTOP is an affordable home fire sprinkler system linked to a domestic water supply, putting the reassurance of sprinkler protection within reach of homeowners.
When building in rural zones, installing fire sprinklers in homes is recommended by the NZ Fire Service to provide maximum protection for life and property especially if the home is more than a 10 minute response time from a fire station. The cost of installing a home fire sprinkler system is significantly lower than the cost of providing other options required for fire fighting purposes for homes built in designated rural zones.
Designed especially for the home environment, BLAZESTOP uses sprinkler heads concealed in the ceiling with industry’s smallest cover plate, just 60mm in diameter. Where this is not possible, sidewall or pendant sprinkler heads are an option.
Retrofitting into existing homes is also possible and cost-effective with flexible piping concealed in roof spaces .
Made from durable polybutylene or cross-linked polyethylene with an aluminium core, BLAZESTOP piping isn’t affected by scaling, corrosion, or microbiological growth.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS OF BLAZESTOP
BLAZESTOP is designed to meet New Zealand Standard NZS 4517:2010 Fire Sprinkler Systems for houses and complies with New Zealand Building Code (NZBC) Clause G12 water supplies.
When installed in single family homes in rural zones, the required water supply classification for fire fighting purposes will be FW1 as stipulated in the New Zealand Fire Service Firefighting Water Supplies Code of Practice, SNZ PAS 4509:2008, which is much more cost effective than other fire fighting water supply options recommended in the Code of Practice.
BLAZESTOP is triggered by heat, not smoke, and doesn’t rely on electricity. If the temperature in a room indicates fire, the sprinkler in that room will activate instantly and automatically. The sprinklers in the other parts of the house will NOT activate.
By containing and controlling a fire in a single room, usually within three to five minutes, there’s less fire and water damage. Sprinklers use 40 to 80 litres of water a minute, compared to 700 litres a minute used by the Fire Service.
BLAZESTOP fits into any new or existing residential plumbing system.
BLAZESTOP is light and flexible, making it easy and cost-effective to install, even in hard-to-reach areas. Push-fit fittings don’t need flame or heat-based jointing methods so they’re much safer to work with, especially in restricted spaces.
