Residential Systems

Residential sprinkler services provided by C & E Fire ProtectionAutomatic fire sprinklers are individually heat-activated and tied into a network of piping with water under pressure. When the heat of a fire raises the sprinkler temperature to its operating point (usually 165 degrees) a solder link will melt or a liquid-filled glass bulb will shatter to open that single sprinkler, releasing water directly over the source of the heat. C&E Fire Protection designs and installs residential fire sprinklers.

According to the Fire Sprinkler Association there are currently ninety-nine jurisdictions and fire districts in Illinois that have adopted progressive residential fire sprinkler ordinances for new single-family homes. A list of towns in Illinois that have adopted the sprinkler ordinance is available on the Fire Sprinkler Association website. You may download a free residential fire sprinkler handout for more information before contacting C&E Fire Protection, Inc.

Fire sprinklers do require regular attention to maintain readiness for fire protection. The following tips should be followed to maintain your fire sprinklers.

  • Schedule regular quarterly or annual inspections of your fire sprinklers.
  • Never paint your fire sprinklers.
  • Never hang anything from your fire sprinklers.
  • Never stack items close to your fire sprinklers. Shelving and/or furniture needs to be at least 18 inches below fire sprinklers.
  • Always report any fire sprinkler damage immediately to a licensed fire protection company.
  • Always maintain control valves in the open position.

Residential fire sprinklers are smaller and lower-profiled than the types of sprinklers that are used in commercial properties. Each sprinkler has a temperature-sensitive element. When temperatures reach between 135-165 degrees, sprinklers will individually activate and control your fire until the fire department arrives. Residential fire sprinkler systems operate off the household water main or by a storage tank. The piping can be hidden behind walls and ceilings.
