What is a Wildfire External Sprinkler System?
The Wildfire External Sprinkler System is an economical and proven method of protecting your remote buildings from Wildfires. The sprinklers are installed on the outside of a building and are driven by a power pump that is set up at a lake or river. This system can be left to run unattended.

What does a Wildfire External Sprinkler System Do?
Once the sprinklers are started, they create a mini weather environment around your cottage or home. The sprinklers raise the Relative Humidity and lower the Temperature. With the area cooler and wetter, it is less susceptible to burn.

Why do I need a Wildfire External Sprinkler System?
With the current trends of downloading and downsizing, more responsibility is being handed down to the private individuals. Cottage and Resort owners are being encouraged to take the initiative, and to provide their own values protection in the event of a Wildfire.
