On the 1st November 2018 a Triangle sprinkler system successfully actuated and extinguished a fire at St Mungo’s Association Hostel for the Homeless. The BS 9251 fire sprinkler system was designed, supplied and installed by Triangle in 2016.
The fire started on a mattress in a ground floor bedroom. The actuation of the fire sprinkler system restricted fire damage to less than 1m2 and smoke damage to just the room of origin. The occupant of the room escaped without injury.
The cause of the fire is currently under investigation by the police and fire brigade.
Our engineers subsequently attended site to replace the sprinkler head and reinstate the system back to full operational use.
