NFPA recommends sprinklers in all the areas including Operation

Theaters.

 

Our experience is that sprinklers should not be provided in OTs

as few accidents have happened where sprinklers were energized

/ leaked due to some problem, during the operation. The result was

detrimental for the patient.

 

We have started specifying the Energen System for OTs.

 

Please send us your comments.
