Burst ceiling sprinkler line floods tech building
Many building codes require fire sprinklers to be installed in new construction - this makes sense because for the most part, fire sprinklers can greatly reduce the likelihood of a severe fire. However, as a local technology firm found out, fire sprinklers can also be the SOURCE of a catastrophe.
Overnight while no one was in the building, a connector to a fire sprinkler in the 2nd floor ceiling of a conference room burst. A single fire sprinkler can spray up to 24 gallons of water per minute and the leak was not discovered until the next morning!
They lost their drop ceiling in nearly 100% of the office space and when it collapsed it damaged items underneath. With our help they were able to clean up and dry out the building in just a few days.
