Sprinkler Save at The Bentall Centre, Kingston Upon Thames, London.

June 20, 2018

Date of Incident - 31 May 2018
Time of incident - 23:11
Location - The Bentall Centre, Kingston Upon Thames

The fire was located in a retail unit and the AFD/sprinkler system operated.  
Commercial system BS12845 installed and 3 appliances attended. On arrival the fire had been contained by the onsite sprinkler system. Only 5% of the retail unit was damaged and there were no reported injuries. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.


A London Fire Brigade spokesperson said: “This fire highlights the clear benefits of sprinklers to businesses and we would urge all companies and business owners to install them. 
“It is a common misconception that in the event of a fire all sprinklers go off. In this case, only one sprinkler activated to control the fire spread and limit fire damage." 


The shop in question was fitted with a sprinkler system, while one sprinkler head operated and helped stop the fire from spreading.
