BlazeStop Home Fire Sprinkler System
Description

BlazeStop is an affordable home fire sprinkler system linked to a domestic water supply which can be installed in a new build or retro fitted into an existing home. 

BlazeStop uses concealed sprinkler heads in the ceiling with a small white cover plate (60mm diameter), or alternately sidewall or pendant sprinklers depending on the design and construction of the home. Leap BlazeStop Systems are designed to meet NZS 4517:2010 Fire Sprinkler Systems for houses and complies with New Zealand Building Code (NZBC) Clause G12 water supplies and acceptable solution C/AS1.

Key Features
  • Unobtrusive and discreet with hidden piping — sprinkler heads may be concealed or exposed depending on design
  • Links to normal domestic water supply with no special piping or separate supply needed
  • Can be installed by any registered plumber trained in the system
  • Affordable for both existing and new homes
  • Flexible piping prevents sound transmission, makes installation easier — even in existing homes
  • Pipework is made from either polybutylene or cross linked polyethylene which are not effected by scaling, corrosion or microbiological growth
  • Three to five minutes is all it takes for BlazeStop to contain and control most fires, giving occupants time to escape and minimising fire and water damage
  • Each sprinkler works independently and activates only where it detects a fire, leaving the rest of the house safe and dry
  • 25 year guarantee

Scope of Use
  • Residential applications — existing or new builds
  • Ideal for houses — urban or rural areas
  • BlazeStop can cater for any sized residential home — the pump size may differ from a small 2 bedroom single level home to a 6 bedroom multilevel home with a buried water supply tank
  • Sprinkler pipework is generally concealed in the roof space.  Occasionally pipework or sprinklers maybe exposed due to design restrictions
  • If the sprinkler is charged by a pump/tank, the pump would be located near the tank in a weatherproof enclosure or shed 
  • If the sprinkler is charged by a pump/tank, then power is required for the pump
  • Pipework and sprinklers are mounted in the roof space.  The 'cover plates' are installed from inside the room – fixed to the sprinklers at the ceiling
  • BlazeStop sprinklers are automatic — activated by heat
  • The sprinkler system is designed to include a WC which is an instant red flag that there’s a problem with the water supply if the toilet won’t flush
