Designed for maximum home ember protection

Residential Bushfire Protection

Professional installation of the Platypus Sprinkler system ensures maximum home fire protection.

Water is sprayed not only onto the house roof keeping gutters wet but also it provides a curtain effect surrounding the building and ground. Installing home fire sprinklers on decking handrails, above gable ends and any other areas at risk of debris build up is also wise. Solar panels can also be an area where debris can build up, consider additional Platypus Sprinklers for these areas.

Availability of water during the bushfire season is normally limited. Our sprinkler is the sensible home fire protection solution because it minimises water usage but maximises the effect of water usage.

Unlike other home fire sprinklers on the market, tests clearly show water sprayed from the Platypus Sprinkler head is less wind affected because of water droplet size and the downward direction of water spray.

The total flow of sprinklers, hose reels etc need to be properly calculated with any static height, pipe friction and head loss through valves and fittings added to the required operating pressure of the sprinkler being used. Automatic start-up systems can also be added to allow for unmanned operation and protection of the asset.
