So what is missing??

So what is missing??

RE: So what is missing??

sprinkler system was probably designed wrong, installed incorrectly or shut off entirely. some places still have sprinkler systems shut off from the freeze of February 2021.

RE: So what is missing??

A sprinklered warehouse where sprinkler protection was not adequate resulting in a large fire? Wow never thought that could happen.OK I am awake now. Let’s see I was on the insurance side of engineering for 36 years and I always assumed the sprinkler protection in the warehouse was not adequate. Why because of the 1000’s of warehouses I visited about 50% the sprinkler protection was not adequate. Changes in occupancy since the sprinkler system was installed, ESFR sprinkler obstructions, inadequate water supply, blocked flue space and or solid shelf’s in the racks,narrow aisles, stuff stored in the aisles, idle wood and plastic pallets too high, flammable and combustible liquids in plastic containers,or totes, on and on the list goes. Not to mention lack of fire pump, sprinkler testing. Yea they burn real well.
