Vandalism to sprinkler heads remains one of the primary reasons that prisons may delay the installation of fire sprinklers. The cost from the resulting water damage, even if just left running for a few minutes can be substantial. Having a clear fire reduction strategy is key.Read More
Don’t let Winter Temps Be The Cause of Accidental Sprinkler Activation.
As the temperatures plummet, the risk of accidental fire sprinkler discharge increases. Regular maintenance and testing is critical to ensure that the automatic fire sprinkler system is functioning properly. However; the cool temperatures bring with it the additional risk of frozen pipes and damaged sprinkler heads. Every year, the news is filled with stories about pipes bursting, sprinkler heads rupturing and the extensive, costly, water damage that results.Read More

No, we're not saying that our product is pretty - it's yellow, effective and necessary! When it comes to fire safety, luxury hotel designers are steering away from imposing safety features like the traditional red exit signs and exposed fire sprinkler heads are opting for safety products that support their luxury experience, carefully selecting products like edge-lit signs and recessed sprinkler head models which blend more seamlessly with the design of the hotel.
Shutgun has had to respond to this need by adapting our sprinkler shut off tool models.
Many high-end hotel chains are converting their semi-recessed sprinkler head systems to the concealed models as these heads provide the needed function to extinguish potential fires while seamlessly melding into the décor.
The Shutgun is a one-handed tool that immediately stops the flow of water from an activated fire sprinkler head. We have created a tool specifically for concealed sprinkler heads, ensuring not only the protection of the hotel from water damage, but that hoteliers will not have to sacrifice safety for beauty.
Concealed sprinkler heads offer hoteliers protection for both their guests and the property and blend seamlessly into the décor. But while the aesthetics of recessed sprinkler head models are safe – the concealed nature of them makes it harder to shut off in cases of accidental activation.
The concealed head Shutgun is equipped with a longer probe that can reach the opening of the water source recessed inside the sprinkler head. The end result: hoteliers can still provide the optimal luxury experience while keeping safety top of mind.
Safety features have come a long way from the obtrusive products in the past. Shutgun is happy to be on the leading edge!
Shutgun and Greg Patterson will be exhibiting at the HX: Hotel Experience trade show from November 8 to 10 at booth #2524a!
Shutgun Tool has decided to showcase their newly released fire sprinkler shut off products at this year’s BUILD EXPO USA taking place September 16 & 17 at the NRG Centre in Houston.Read More
The Shutgun system was designed to respond to emergencies, therefore it needs to be accessible at all times. Ideally, we recommend that you place your equipment in a highly visible, labeled location. But let’s face it, sprinklers don’t discharge every day. So, it is easy for the equipment to be inadvertently placed into a toolbox or into a drawer.
When your sprinklers are accidentally discharged, the last thing you need to worry about is finding your Shutgun. Scrabbling in a drawer or a toolbox for the shut off system increases the risk of damage. Time is of the essence. Purchasing the Shutgun is the first step to ensure quick shut off occurs, but what if you can’t find the equipment?Read More
