The Illinois Fire Sprinkler Coalition helps increase awareness about the home fire problem in Illinois and encourages the use of fire sprinklers to save lives and prevent injuries to both residents and firefighters alike.
Demand is Up, Costs are Down
Increased demand, cheaper materials and trade-ups are reducing the cost of home fire sprinklers. It’s more than a trend; it’s become a fact of life in fire protection and new home construction.
A 2013 report by the Fire Protection Research Foundation found the average cost per sprinklered square foot was $1.35, a sharp decline from the $1.61 average cost per sprinklered square foot in 2008.
