The SprinkGUARD product line is just what the fire sprinkler industry needed for the enhanced protection of fire sprinkler heads. SprinkGUARD cages will be specificed on all of our university projects where a fire sprinkler head is subject to a significant striking hazard. We initially struggled to find a product that would protect fire sprinkler heads for our indoor practice facility in providing strike protection from not only a football, softball, or baseball, but also a golf ball. The typical “over the counter” sprinkler cage would properly handle a slight, indirect hit, but with design and durability of the SprinkGUARD products, it leaves those over the counter cages in the dust when it comes to enhanced protection of the fire sprinkler head.

We have in-rack sprinklers in our refrigerated facility here in Ephrata, Pennsylvania and since 2004, when we built this facility, we have had several sprinkler head breaks due to pallets and/or product hitting them. Every time this happens, it costs us thousands of dollars in clean up and product loss. The standard thin metal sprinkler covers were not protecting the heads from breaking.”

I reached out to my friend ‘Google’ and found SprinkGuard. I immediately ordered one and found it to be a well built, heavy duty guard. We tested 10 SprinkGuards in our facility and everyone liked them and felt that SprinkGuard was the solution we had been looking for since 2004. We ordered another 1,200 guards and they will be installed in all areas in the warehouse that have in-rack sprinklers.

We chose SprinkGuard to protect our recreational facilities because their design gives us the most protection we could find for the fire sprinkler heads within our fire suppression system. The cost of SprinkGuard is minimal compared to what we lost when our facility was flooded from a basketball hitting a sprinkler head causing a flood. This disaster not only cost us financially, but we lost the use of our gym for 3 months as our wood floor was taken up and replaced.

In December of 2008, we opened our new Student Lift Facility, the Pfeil Center. In March of 2009, during a soccer pratice, a soccer ball was kicked and busted a sprinkler head, flooding our new gymnasium floor. The result was a long battle with the insurance company and a six month wait for our floor to be replaced.

We reached out to SprinkGUARD who introduced us to their fire sprinkler guards. The SprinkGuard has given our institution the peace of mind that our facility will be sufficiently protected for years to come.

I have been a part of the process to identify a suitable heavy duty frame to protect the heads while allowing the sprinkler to work properly. In my opinion, the frame developed by Midwest Fabrications does protect the device well and will allow for a sufficient sprinkler pattern to develop should there be a fire in the gymnasium area.

As the authority having jurisdiction for Holy Cross College, I endorse the installation of the frames in the gymnasium area in order to be able to protect the area with sprinklers.
