You may have heard of an incident at the Globe Theatre in London recently where the ‘sprinkler’ system reportedly malfunctioned causing the shows to be cancelled.

Thanks To Nick Coleshill of LFB it now appears that the theatre has a drencher system which covers the thatched roof and this automatically activates if the fire alarm panel is not  attended to within 5 minutes.

On this particular occasion the time taken to respond to an activated break glass call point was longer than the five minutes and the drencher system therefore operated.
