Dry Pipe Fire Sprinkler System
A dry pipe sprinkler system is one which pipe are filled with pressurized air or Nitrogen, rather than water. This air holds a remote valve, known as a dry pipe valve, in a closed position.
When sprinkler heads open, the gas is released and a valve opens that allows water to flow out through the open fire sprinkler heads. While this causes a slight delay in water discharge, it is useful in building where water could freeze if kept in the pipe.
Wet pipe Fire Sprinkler System
Wet pipe fire sprinkler system is the most common type fire sprinkler system in use, in a wet pipe fire sprinkler the water is stored directly in the pipe and released by heat activated sprinkler heads. This type of fire sprinkler has the advantage of being able to active instantly, with no long time when the fire sprinkler heads open.
Deluge fire sprinkler system
A deluge fire sprinkler system is a very similar to a wet pipe fire sprinkler system except the fire sprinkler heads are kept open at all time- they are not activated by heat. Instead, deluge fire sprinkler system is operated by a specialized fire alarm which causes a valve to open and release the water. Once the calve opens it can’t be closed until manually turned off.
Deluge fire sprinkler are not commonly found in the homes or offices. Instead, they are used in place where rapid fire spread is a concern., you will usually set deluge fire sprinkler systems near high rise windows, ware house, bay entries or anywhere else where a fire could escape quickly.
Pre-action fire sprinkler system
A pre-action fire sprinkler system is basically a combination of wet pipe and dry pipe sprinkler system. Basically, water is not stored until a fire detection device detects a fire. At this point, the detection device opens a valve to let the water in before the sprinkler heads open. When the heads open, the pre-action fire sprinkler system reacts as quickly as a wet pipe fire sprinkler system.
Pre-action fire sprinkler system are best suited for areas that are high risk for serious water damage in the event of accidental fire sprinkler activation.
No matter what type of fire sprinkler system you need in your building, SDE (Syahiddul Engineering) has you covered.

A foam water fire sprinkler system is a special application system, discharging a mixture of water and low expansion foam concentrate, resulting in a foam spray from the sprinkler. These systems are usually used with special hazards occupancies associated with high challenge fires, such as flammable liquids, and chemical plants. Operation is as described above, depending on the system type into which the foam is injected.
A fire alarm system has a number of devices working together to detect and warn people through visual and audio appliances when smoke, fire, carbon monoxide or other emergencies are present. These alarms may be activated automatically from smoke detectors and heat detectors or may also be activated via manual fire alarm activation devices such as manual call points or pull stations. Alarms can be either motorized bells or wall mountable sounders or horns. They can also be speaker strobes which sound an alarm. Other Fire Protection System elements:
