What we need for a fire is heat, oxygen, and a spark and fuel, and so if you can take one of those away, you're going to take the fire away, and so most of the time, the sprinkler is about taking the heat away or reducing it in order to reduce the capacity of the fire itself, but sometimes, if it's small enough, it will actually put the fire out, but you need to have that water going at a general level everywhere in order to make sure that wherever that fire is, the heat there will be taken out. So that's clearly the big thing is trying to put the fire out or slow it down, at least, in order to get it to be a small enough entity that when the firefighters come, they can handle it more readily. The other architectural aspect to this that you're going to get is that it will impact our egress distances.
