Sprinklerfrämjandet, the Swedish sprinkler association, has published figures for the numbers of sprinklers installed in Sweden in 2017. 633,060 sprinklers were installed, of which 35,000 were residential sprinklers. This is an increase of 17% on 2016 and is the first time the market has exceeded 600,000 sprinklers. The market has steadily grown and is now six times as large as in the early 1980s.
The EFSN is working closely with Sprinklerfrämjandet to host Fire Sprinkler International 2018, a two-day international conference which will be held in Stockholm on 13-14 June. With a booming national market, this will be a great time to be in Stockholm!
