Design fire sprinkler systems quickly and easily using a BIM workflow in a Revit® MEP model

Fire Sprinklers (previously named Smart Sprinklers) makes the design and routing of fire protection systems in Revit® efficient. Automated real-time updating when changes are made to the project ensures that you’ll get accurate bills of materials and builders work drawings for on-site assembly.

Compatible with Autodesk® Revit® 2021, 2020, 2019, 2018

The software incorporates NFPA, AU, and ISO standards and can accommodate any others. Simple yet highly flexible rules are used to distribute sprinkler heads instantly throughout a current or linked Revit model with the clash tolerance you specify. It also properly sizes system pipes and automatically connects them based on the visually-depicted routing option you choose.

The included MEP Hangers functionality enables instant, large-scale insertion of hangers and supports for accurate on-site assembly of sprinkler system pipes.

We also recommend the separate Cut Opening solution to easily create openings with fire safety components where pipes intersect with walls, floors, roofs, ceilings, beams, and columns.

Client Story:

NDY Malaysia: “Smart Sprinklers is essential in our day to day usage of Revit.”


Fire Sprinkler is a powerful BIM solution for wet and dry fire protection systems suited for standards in any region. Pre-set or custom rules let you place sprinkler heads throughout an Autodesk Revit model, connect them to distribution pipes based on visually-depicted routing options, pre-calculate pipe diameters, and more.

  • Fire Sprinklers Revit extension lets you plan sprinkler's location in a BIM model | AGACADEasily distribute Sprinkler Heads in accordance to the coverage area
  • Choose the best routing of your system by visually-depicted routing options
  • Pre-calculate pipe diameters to meet national or company standards
  • Modify fire protection system at any stage of your project
  • Run clash analysis between different parts of fire protection system and other elements in the model

Fire Sprinkler makes for easy planning of sprinkler locations in a BIM model with real-time interference checking. Plus it automatically routes pipes from sprinklers to distribution pipes per user-predefined rules. This BIM Solution lets you choose between visually displayed routing options. Compatible for fire protection design work anywhere in the world, as it incorporates NFPA, ISO, and AU standards. Fire Sprinkler is exclusive for its automatic system connection. Using this product you will be able to work with sprinkler fire protection systems all the way from sprinkler head distribution through to pipe size selection.

Ideal for:

MEP Engineers,
Fire Protection System designers
Distribute and connect sprinklers into fire protection system with appropriate routings and pre-calculate diameters
New Revit® users Easier creation of fire sprinkler systems than using simple Revit tools
Experienced BIM Managers
Additional tools that Revit does not has

Control of BIM model and clash detection
Contractors Receive more accurate and detailed building model and building drawings

Powerful features:

Collaboration

Possible to work with linked files

Integrated clash detection between parts of fire protection system and the whole model

Efficiency

Quick distribution of sprinkler heads

Connection of elements by predefined routing saves up to 3x the time used per project compared to working in plain Revit

Pre-calculate pipe diameters inside of Revit. No need to export data to external calculation machines!

Compliance

Model elements are active after distribution

Possibility to adapt pre-calculations to any standard

Our Fire Sprinkler add-on extends design and calculation possibilities for designers using Autodesk Revit. This BIM tool lets you automatically distribute sprinkler elements in a space, connect all elements into one hydraulic system using specially programmed configurations, and size pipes according to different standards, which may be modified according to your needs.

Element distribution is based on predefined, adjustable parameters. The solution has integrated routing preferences for all possible distribution variants, and those layouts are depicted graphically for better understanding. Calculations of pipe sizes are based on flow limits.

Benefits

  • Smart Modeling. You can create 3D piping for your sprinkler designs the way you want.
  • Speed and Increased Productivity. Smart Sprinklers inserts sprinklers in space and routs pipes from sprinklers to distribution pipe automatically. Automatically pre-calculates diameters for range and distribution pipes by different standards (ISO, AS, NFPA, etc). Revit MEP users will save a lot of hours per project using Smart Sprinklers add-on.
  • Error Prevention. Interference checking functions for sprinklers and sprinkler pipe system allow you to easily avoid mistakes. Interference checking works in real time when you are planning sprinkler distribution in space. Ability to access specialized fire protection data in real time allows you to easily avoid mistakes.
  • Saved settings for future projects. Allows you to re-create sprinkler layouts and analysis to quickly meet standards or change from one to another.
  • Sprinkler Distribution in Linked Revit File. Tools of Smart Sprinklers are relevant to all Revit MEP users because this BIM solution enables quick distribution of sprinkler elements in the linked Revit files and easy modification of them.
  • Automatic system connection.
  • Integrated pipe size calculations.
  • Integrated interference check.
  • Up to 3 times the time saved per one project.
  • One mouse click. Distribution of hundreds elements in one click.

Testimonials

- Julian Phoon, BIM Manager at NDY (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd.
“Smart Sprinklers application is essential in our day to day usage of Revit. It was difficult to generate large quantities of sprinkler layouts before this add-in. We are now able to do so and it has definitely saved us a lot of time. I’m also impressed with the customer support when I have issues with the product. Plus the issues get fixed in the updates.”
