What is an alternate system?
An alternate system is usually installed where some part of the installation is exposed to the outside, e.g. car parks, loading bays etc. To ensure pipes do not burst due to freezing air replaces the water in the Autumn. When a sprinkler operates the air is released and a valve flips over, releasing water into the system. Engineers have to take the valve set apart to set an alternate system, this entails 2 to 3 times the amount of work for a non-alternate system.
Identification of Sprinkler Systems
Sprinkler Systems - at the "industrial" end of a building (car park, loading bay etc) water driven bells usually with "Sprinkler Stop Valve Inside". Alternate System - A compressor nearby is attached to the pipework which is exposed to cold temperatures outside.
