Frequently Asked Questions About Life Safety System Service & Repair
Why do backflow preventers need to be tested regularly?
Backflow preventers have numerous internal components, including seals, springs, and other moving parts. These are all subject to wear and fatigue. As these components wear out, the risk of fouling increases. Testing the backflow preventer ensures that problem components can be replaced before a failure occurs.
What does a fire pump test include?
Our technicians inspect the lines and voltage coming into the fire pump. We also make sure that there are no internal problems that can impede pump function and that the unit is operating within the manufacturer’s standards.
Can fire sprinklers accidentally trigger?
This is a common concern, and the answer is that accidental release does happen, but it is extremely rare. Most fire suppression systems require a minimum temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit before they will activate. In fact, an accidental release is so rare that it’s estimated to occur in less than 1 in 3 million systems.
What is the purpose of CCTV systems?
Closed circuit television (CCTV) systems allow operators to monitor their building’s interior and exterior. This provides real-time information about security threats and the condition of the structure. It makes it possible to identify fires, floods, and other threats to personnel and property. In turn, this allows security professionals to convey critical information to first responders that allows them to neutralize the threat more effectively.
