“Frozen sprinkler pipes either means the wrong type of sprinkler system was installed or something happened to the heating system in the facility,” says John Larkin, Senior Partner with ESC of Greater Ohio. “Dry-type sprinkler systems are often the way to go when cold weather is an issue. Air pressure in the pipes keeps the water from filling the piping so when a fire melts a link in a sprinkler head, water rushes in, spreading out in the room where the fire is.”
