Sprinkler Designed for Fire Ember Protection
Any home, office or building that is close to a bushfire prone area should consider installing the latest in ember protection to protect loved ones and valuable assets.
The Platypus sprinkler system:
- Sprays water onto house roof keeping gutters wet.
- Provides a curtain effect surrounding the building and ground.
- Additional sprinklers can target and protect decking handrails, gable ends, solar panels, and any other areas at risk of debris.
Bushfire protections sprinkler heads are usually mounted around the perimeter of the building in close proximity to the spouting. They can also be fitted to the ridgeline, and any other areas at risk from embers.
Platypus® Ember Protection System Benefits
Superior in High Wind Condition
The unique design features of the Platypus bushfire protection sprinkler make it more effective in high wind conditions than standard butterfly sprinklers. It is high winds that cause ember attack.
Platypus’s innovative system removed the need for an outer support frame typically found on inferior butterfly sprinklers. A frame results in very small droplets which are more likely to be effected by wind.
The Platypus Sprinkler sprays larger water droplets. They are sprayed “out and down” somewhat like rain rather than up in the air.
Tests show water sprayed from our sprinkler head is less wind affected because of water droplet size and the downward direction of water spray.
New Home and Building Construction
Installing the Platypus Platypus bushfire protection sprinkler system during the construction of new homes and buildings means the pipework can be concealed more effectively.
Retrofitting Existing Buildings
Existing homes, offices and other commercial buildings can be easily and cost-effectively retrofitted. In these cases the sprinkler system will have exposed pipework.
A water pump is required to force water through the dual outlet spinner in a 360° spray pattern. Water pumps can be petrol or diesel-driven pumps. Electrical pumps can also be used but a backup system is recommended.
