In-Rack Sprinkler Systems
While best practices and passive fire protection - such as our Durasteel fire protection system - can mitigate risk, active fire protection is a critical last barrier to serious fire damage. This is particularly true for pallet racking, where flammable goods and pallets are often densely packed in areas that can not immediately be reached or monitored.
Our chief focus in designing and installing racking and storage is always safety, and our in-rack sprinkler systems are our premier active fire protection solution. An in-rack sprinkler system is designed to prevent the spread of fire within racking by using heat-sensitive heads, triggering automatically in the event of a fire and extinguishing the flames.
Invicta Racking has been designing and installing racking and racking accessories for over 30 years. As a result, we have a unique and intimate understanding of racking safety, and can design a solution for every circumstance. A complementary site visit will allow us to assess the nature of your business and stock, and calculate the spacing of sprinkler heads to ensure proper coverage.
In a multi-tier racking system, in-rack sprinklers are generally installed to the underside of floor level aisles, but they can also branch into the shelving structure depending on the nature of the space. For certain types of volatile and high density storage, for example archive storage, in-rack sprinklers are often an insurance requirement.
It’s easy for safety measures to get away from you as your business scales, and your warehouse space expands outside the capacity of your current systems. Installing our specially engineered in-rack sprinkler systems minimises the risk of a devastating fire, preserving your business assets and guaranteeing the safety of your employees.
