This overhead view shows how our system works.
When fire approaches the perimeter of a property the sensing wire at the perimiter is is melted to "short" by 140+ degree temperatures.
That short is registered by the 4 x 4 deluge control system and it triggers to deluge system...
Starting the generator which powers a high pressure water pump which then puts 300 gallons per minute on your house and property, extinguishing embers, cooling the air and cooling and drenching your hose, roof, walls, windows, doors, cars, nearby trees.. everything.
