Fire Sprinkler System FAQs
Are fire sprinkler systems effective at fighting fires?
Yes. Fire sprinkler systems can minimize damage and prevent the spread of a fire once it starts. By turning on at the spot where the fire is occurring, these systems can stop its spread and save lives and property. It often requires just one or two of the sprinkler heads to stop a fire, allowing most of the building to remain safe.
What types of businesses require fire sprinkler systems?
If a business has a building with a fire area that is larger than 12,000 square feet, then the building must have a fire sprinkler system. It is also required if the fire area has an occupant load of 300 or more people.
How often should a business invest in fire sprinkler inspection?
An annual inspection of the fire sprinkler system’s basic operation is required by law. Many businesses will opt for more frequent inspections as well. Every five years, you should also have the internal piping and plumbing inspected.
When should a business invest in fire sprinkler testing services?
A full test of a dry sprinkler system is required every 10 years. Fast-response sprinklers should be tested 20 years after installation, then 10 years after the first inspection.
When should businesses plan for fire sprinkler replacement?
Fire sprinkler systems can last for many decades. There is no set timetable for fire sprinkler replacement. Businesses should inspect the systems regularly and invest in fire sprinkler repair when needed. If the test shows signs of corrosion or leaks in the system, then it’s time to think about fire sprinkler replacement.
