The Platypus sprinkler system is designed for maximum protection from ember attack on residential, commercial or public structures in the event of a wildfire. Unlike other home fire sprinklers on the market, tests show water sprayed from Platypus sprinkler head is less wind affected because of water droplet size and the downward direction of water spray.
The Platypus Sprinkler can be installed during construction of new structures so that the pipework can be concealed. In the case of existing structures, sprinklers can be easily retrofitted and still be cost-effective.
The Platypus Sprinkler has a twin outlet head that spins on a central shaft. The design of the head ensures water droplets spray out and down from the sprinkler head, and water is sprayed in a full circle spray pattern.
A unique feature of the Platypus Sprinkler is it doesn’t have an outer support frame around the spinner, this ensures the water stream is not broken and therefore the concentration of large droplets dispersed is higher and less wind effected—this means more of your water stays on the building. Other sprinklers that have an outer support frame produce smaller droplets and mist—making them less effective.
