Frontier Forestry Sprinkler Systems

 Features

  • Sprinklers are used to thoroughly wet down an area. This results in combustibles (buildings and landscape) being much less likely to ignite due to flying embers and the intense heat of a nearby fire.

  • The soaked landscape releases moisture into the air. This lowers the ambient temperature and increases the humidity level of the immediate area. These effects extend some distance above ground level. The result is that the advancing wildfire will tend to be deflected by this less supportive environmental pocket and pass by the protected property.

  • Sprinklers are most effective when in continual operation for 2 or more hours prior to the arrival of the fire. However, any operational time, even as little as an hour, will increase chances of a successful defense of the property.
