Fire Protection—Sprinkler and Halon Systems

  • Sidney M. Levy

Abstract

In 1874, in New Haven, Connecticut, Henry Parmelee invented an automatic sprinkler system for his piano factory and fire protection for buildings took on an entirely new approach. Over the ensuing years variations on the initial concept resulted in more sophisticated devices to respond to, and deal with, the threat of fire more quickly and with more efficiency.
