District Fire Chief of 35 years, with the intention to provide fire fighters,
emergency response teams and property managers with a one-handed, easy-to-use
fire sprinkler shut off tool. But what if a fire occurs
in the same spot?
Shutgun was created with a unique fusible link that offers
continued protection by melting and releasing the tool in the event of a fire
flare up or recurrence.
This way, the tool can be left in place with
the sprinkler system charged until the pipes can be drained and the head
replaced – thus giving the rest of the building full fire protection despite
the activation. “This is of huge benefit
to managers who don’t want to jeopardize the rest of the building by shutting
off the water system completely,” said Greg Patterson.
