As the unsprinklered side burns, it will be totally consumed within 3-4 minutes, making sustaining life impossible in a very short time.. The side that is equipped with a sprinkler, will activate and put the fire out, saving the contents and in real life, saving the lives of the occupants, with little to no damage from the fire and water. 85% of fire fatalities in South Carolina occur in the home. This affordable and effective life safety system pays for itself in insurance premium discounts and offers fire protection 24/7 whether the occupants are at home, or away. See you on the 19th.
