A: We are talking an 80% reduction in property damage. Yes, it is indeed a very effective fire suppression system.
Q: Are fir sprinklers actually effective?
A: Aside from the 80% reduction? Well, of fires deemed big enough to trigger them, sprinkler systems activate 99% of the time.
Q: Does fire sprinkler activation result in a lot of water damage?
A: No, but again, there are environments that are very sensitive to water. Like data centers or libraries. So there are better systems for those. But most fires are contained quickly with only a few sprinklers activated.
