A few commonly quoted sprinkler facts…
There are over 40 million sprinklers fitted world-wide each year.
Systems over 100 years old are still in use today.
Losses from fires in buildings protected with sprinklers are estimated to be only one tenth of those in unprotected buildings.
In buildings fully protected by sprinklers:
- 99% of fires were controlled by sprinklers alone
- 60% of fires were controlled by the spray from no more than 4 sprinklers

Records show that the chance of accidental discharge from a sprinkler is in the region of 16 million to one.
Accidental discharge of water due to manufacturing defects is 1 in 14,000,000 (per year of service). Source: FM (USA) and LPC (UK) statistics.
