Sprinkler Designed for Fire Ember Protection

sprinkler system designed for maximum protection from ember attack in the event of a bushfire.

Any home, office or building that is close to a bushfire prone area should consider installing the latest in ember protection to protect loved ones and valuable assets.

The Platypus sprinkler system:

  • Sprays water onto house roof keeping gutters wet.
  • Provides a curtain effect surrounding the building and ground.
  • Additional sprinklers can target and protect decking handrails, gable ends, solar panels, and any other areas at risk of debris.

Bushfire protections sprinkler heads are usually mounted around the perimeter of the building in close proximity to the spouting. They can also be fitted to the ridgeline, and any other areas at risk from embers.

Platypus® Ember Protection System Benefits

Superior in High Wind Condition

The unique design features of the Platypus bushfire protection sprinkler make it more effective in high wind conditions than standard butterfly sprinklers. It is high winds that cause ember attack.

Platypus’s innovative system removed the need for an outer support frame typically found on inferior butterfly sprinklers. A frame results in very small droplets which are more likely to be effected by wind.

The Platypus Sprinkler sprays larger water droplets. They are sprayed “out and down” somewhat like rain rather than up in the air.

Tests show water sprayed from our sprinkler head is less wind affected because of water droplet size and the downward direction of water spray.

New Home and Building Construction

Installing the Platypus Platypus bushfire protection sprinkler system during the construction of new homes and buildings means the pipework can be concealed more effectively. 

Retrofitting Existing Buildings

Existing homes, offices and other commercial buildings can be easily and cost-effectively retrofitted. In these cases the sprinkler system will have exposed pipework.

Water Pump

A water pump is required to force water through the dual outlet spinner in a 360° spray pattern. Water pumps can be petrol or diesel-driven pumps. Electrical pumps can also be used but a backup system is recommended.

I used Andy for a refit of a bathroom and kitchen recently. I found Andy to be an excellent plumber and very organised. He completed the complex job efficiently and precisely and it was great to receive a bill with everything detailed so I knew what I was paying for.

Good work deserves acknowledgment and the work that Andrew did at our home certainly does. We were fortunate to get in touch with Andrew for one part of our renovations and quickly decided to use him for all the plumbing works.

Our French Patisserie at Salt Village has been using Andrew since he responded urgently on a public holiday a few months ago. We had a blocked kitchen drain which halted production. He was quick to respond, fixed it and got us back in business.
