Keep the fire at bay.

Nelson Big Gun® and Rotator® Sprinklers are used around the world for open area fire protection systems. Nelson products serve as fire protection for private estates, forests, archaeological sites, industrial sites, and recreational properties. Even though fire protection is primarily an emergency system, it provides added benefits like irrigation, cooling, and micro-climate control for habitat areas.

The Nelson Big Gun® Sprinkler's large throw radius is perfect for creating a defense zone around property by increasing humidity and water content. The Big Gun® Sprinkler has proven for decades to be a dependable part of any wildfire defense irrigation system.

Water the roof to prevent spot fires.

Rotator® Sprinklers are often used along roof peaks near fires to provide complete structural coverage and reduce spot fires started by blowing embers. Low-pressure options are available, which can be critical when municipal or secondary water supplies are hit with increased demand during fire season.
