Builders and Developers Benefit!

Home buyers have never been as aware of security and safety as they
are now. New home builders must offer buyers a new level of value to
compete successfully. Fire sprinklers are an economic way to increase
the desirability of new homes and enhance the builder's reputation for
quality construction.

-Street Width Reduction:
Traffic lanes may be narrowed, substantially reducing the amount of
pavement in every linear foot of street in the development.

-Longer Dead-end Streets:
Dead-end streets may be increased in length allowing additional building
lots to be accessed.

-Tee Turnarounds Permitted:
The permitted use of tee turnarounds in sprinklered developments can create at least one additional
lot per cul-de-sac.

-Increased Street Grades and Building Setbacks:
Steeper street grades and building locations further from paved fire vehicles access may be
permitted.

-Additional Units Permitted:
Although the actual percentage may vary, increases up to 20 percent are not uncommon.

-Expansion of Existing Water Supply May Not Be Needed:
Required fire flows for fully sprinklered developments can be greatly reduced compared to
non-sprinklered developments.

-Increased Hydrant Spacing:
Supply mains may be reduced and hydrant spacing can be increased.

-Decreased Death Rates and Property Loss:
Over time, communities with fully sprinklered developments should see a decrease in fire death rates
and property loss.
