Maintaining Your Fire Sprinklers August 26 2016, 0 Comments

The first step to maintaining fire safety in your home is the installation of fire sprinklers. A recent survey by the National Fire Protection Association showed that your risk of dying in a residential fire decreases by as much as 80% when fire sprinkler system is installed properly. But, proper maintenance measures need to be performed in order to verify that the sprinkler system is fully functional. Here are simple ways to quickly evaluate your fire sprinkler system:

1.) Inspection: A visual inspection is very easy, just look at the sprinkler and make sure that it is not physically damaged.

2.) Testing: This could be easily performed by professionals, the purpose is to determine the valves and other system components status. Testing is achieved through physical checks periodically (water flow and alarm tests).

3.) System Maintenance: This is used generally to ensure that the fire sprinkler system remains operable, and if repairs are needed, system maintenance may be required as well.

ZN-QR 5.6K, 205°F Product Launch January 25 2016, 0 Comments

The new ZN-QR intermediate temp (205°F) will now be able to accommodate commercial spaces with high heat temperatures such as garages. The currently available ZN-QR ordinary temp (162°F) cannot be installed in any commercial garage space since it will require intermediate temp sprinkler heads. The 205°F is perfect for this requirement because it is rated for this space!  Another major difference between the ZN-QR 162°F and 205°F is that it can now be coupled with a 401 cup in the case of any obstructions. Check out the diagram below:

We are excited to announce that this product will launch late February! We will update the blog once it arrives or you can also stay tuned in our Twitter and Facebook for the official arrival announcement.

Senju Sprinkler Featured in Luxe Magazine's Spring 2015 Issue April 13 2015, 0 Comments

The Senju Sprinkler team is excited to announce our featured ad in Luxe Magazine's Spring 2015 issue (Dallas + Fort Worth distribution)! This opportunity is very valuable and relevant for our marketing success in Dallas.

Multiple cities around the United States are some of Luxe's distribution channels, and we are fortunate enough to have an opportunity to be in the Dallas + Fort Worth issue this Spring. With our already established warehouse in Dallas Texas, it only makes sense to advertise Senju Sprinkler in that location.

Our advertisement states: "The best fire sprinkler is the one you don't notice". This slogan says it all!! Wood ceilings are now in high demand and what better way to make it aesthetically pleasing by putting a wood grained cover plate that matches your wood ceilings. It really does live up to its "invisible" name.
