A single sprinkler releases more than a bathtub full of water every minute
Fire sprinklers save buildings and save lives. An unfortunate side effect can be the resulting water damage. A single fire sprinkler can release 60 litres of water per minute. One sprinkler head could fill your bathtub in less than a minute. It takes the fire brigade an average of 10-20 minutes to shut off your sprinkler system, releasing as much as 1200 litres of water per activated head!
For every minute a sprinkler head is activated, it can cost an upwards of $2,000 in water damage. If your building has expensive equipment or electronics nearby, it can cost significantly more.
90% of sprinkler activations are accidental
Did you know that most sprinkler activations are not triggered by a fire? Most sprinkler heads have a glass vial filled with liquid that holds a plug that seals off the water. When the liquid is heated it expands and breaks the vial releasing the water. This vial though strong, can be easily broken when bumped or stressed. Bumping a sprinkler head during a renovation or move, children accidentally hitting a sprinkler with a toy, or even just hanging clothing from a sprinkler can result in an expensive accident.
No other tool shuts off more types of sprinklers
The Shutgun family of fire sprinkler shut off devices are designed to work on international systems and will shut off just about any fire sprinkler, including standard, sheared, broken, concealed, institutional, and semi-recessed style sprinkler heads. Shutgun also makes it safe and easy to shut off an active sprinkler head and can be operated by anyone with just one hand. That’s why it’s the #1 selling sprinkler shut off tool in the world, and it’s sold and used on 5 continents.
No other sprinkler stopper tool has a UL tested, patented ability to release in the event of a fire
Imagine this. You shut off a sprinkler with a different tool. A fire starts. This can happen. Shutgun has a patented fusible link that allows the sprinkler head to reactivate if a fire starts! Don’t take chances with a competitor’s tool. Our tools have a better design and cost less than our competitors.
