Fire Sprinkler Services

Fire Sprinkler Design

We utilize advanced 3D CAD software to design the most suitable fire sprinkler system based on your unique fire protection challenges, including different room sizes, hazards, and code requirements. Certified technicians have deep expertise in designing fire sprinkler systems for the following industries:

Fire Sprinkler Installation

Qualified technicians conduct a site assessment to determine what type of fire sprinkler system is most suitable for the hazards present in your environment. Our installation technicians are OSHA-trained, fluent in NFPA standards, and provide fire sprinkler installation services for all types of systems, including:

  • Deluge
  • Dry pipe
  • Wet pipe
  • Pre-action (single interlocked, double interlocked, and non-interlocked systems)

Fire Sprinkler Inspection & Testing

Fire sprinkler specialists conduct required monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, annual, and five-year fire sprinkler inspections to ensure peak system functionality and NFPA 25 compliance. On the confirmed inspection date, experienced technicians arrive promptly to conduct the following fire sprinkler inspection tasks:

  • Test the control valve
  • Check water and air pressure
  • Look for cracks, leaks, corrosion, and obstructive materials
  • Compile a complete report of the inspection

Fire Sprinkler Maintenance & Repair

If a routine inspection uncovers fire sprinkler problems, trained technicians will conduct vital preventive maintenance to sustain peak performance. We can extend the life of your system and improve its reliability with fire sprinkler maintenance services, including:

  • Nitrogen corrosion control services
  • Repairs and component replacement
  • 24/7/365 rapid-response emergency services
  • Thorough maintenance reporting, including recommendations for corrective actions

Fire Sprinkler Monitoring

With full-time central station monitoring services, your fire sprinkler system will quickly relay alarm signals and sub-optimal system performance to our UL-listed central station in a fire-related emergency. Impact Fire monitors all types of fire-related scenarios by observing the following alarm signals daily:

  • Alarm – Notifying system activation.
  • System Functionality – Notifying decreased performance.
  • System Disabled – Notification to reset systems.
  • Power Failure – Notifying blackout or disruption.
  • Supervisory Signals – Notifying sprinkler valve, compressor, and duct detector issues.

Fire Sprinkler Inspection Process

Fire Sprinkler Inspection Process

During an inspection our Fire Sprinkler Technicians will complete:

  • Inspection to determine if the system is in service and in satisfactory condition
  • Identification of conditions that could compromise the performance of the mechanical and electrical components of the system
  • Inspection for adequate clearance, condition, and position of the sprinkler heads to allow for proper distribution and activation
  • Inspection of the sprinkler control valves for proper position, condition, accessibility, and appropriate signage
  • Inspection and performance of required water-flow tests for each system from main drain and inspectors test valve (weather permitting)
  • Visual inspection of the fire department connection, caps, threads, clappers, check valves, and drains
  • Inspection and testing of the fire sprinkler system alarm components for satisfactory condition and operation
  • Check of spare head box for proper supply and wrench
  • Inspection of the general condition of visible and accessible sprinkler system piping, hangers, drain valves, gauges, and related equipment
  • Test of the operation of sprinkler air compressors for proper activation and shut off, if applicable
  • Test of all low-pressure alarms, supervisory circuits, and auxiliary functions for proper operation
  • Review of customer changes in building status and occupancy hazard classifications that may affect the performance and reliability of the fire sprinkler system
  • Tagging of devices as required and performance of all required record keeping
  • Compiling of a complete report of the inspection, explanation of any deficiencies and recommendations for any corrective actions in accordance with local codes and fire standards
  • Information and explanation that the inspection does not include a design evaluation or engineering analysis

Fire Sprinkler FAQ

1. What is a fire sprinkler system?

A fire sprinkler system is a preventative fire suppression device that releases water to control and extinguish fires. The sprinkler heads are typically installed in ceilings or side walls and face toward the floor or towards specific fire hazards. The other end of the sprinkler system is connected to several pipes and a high-pressure water supply. The rise of heated air molecules activates these fire and life safety systems. Fire sprinkler systems commonly consist of:

  • Gauges
  • ON/OFF valves
  • Sprinkler heads
  • Alarm test valves
  • Water-flow switches
  • Valve tamper switches
2. Why does my building need a fire sprinkler system?

A reliable fire sprinkler system reduces the rate of fire dispersion and provides building occupants potentially life-saving time to exit the building safely. Organizations that implement a fire sprinkler system installed, inspected, and maintained by trained fire protection technicians will: 

  • Reduce maintenance costs
  • Receive insurance discounts
  • Avoid fines and penalties from non-compliance
  • Have further opportunities to identify and address vulnerabilities
3. How often should my fire sprinkler system be inspected?

Fire sprinkler system inspections are required monthly, quarterly, semiannual, annually, and every five years to comply with NFPA 25. Trained fire and life safety technicians should conduct these crucial inspections and tests to guarantee proper completion and documentation.

4. What are the main types of sprinkler systems?

There are four types of commercial sprinkler systems, each adapted to the needs of various facilities to maximize response time and ensure the protection of employees and assets.

  1. Wet Pipe System – An inexpensive, low-maintenance option appropriate for offices, schools, and commercial properties
  2. Dry Pipe System – Appropriate for cold climates with a high risk of frozen pipes 
  3. Pre-Action System – Useful in areas where accidental discharge could lead to irreparable damages, such as museums, libraries, and data centers
  4. Deluge System – Most often used in industries with flammable liquids that are likely to spread rapidly
5. Why is corrosion control important for fire sprinkler systems?

Unchecked fire sprinkler corrosion leads to serious financial and life safety liabilities, including leaks, facility downtime, occupational hazards, and reoccurring system failure. These issues reduce fire sprinkler functionality and increase maintenance costs.

Here are three ways you can minimize fire sprinkler corrosion and extend the life of your fire protection systems:

  1. Partner with a qualified fire protection company to conduct consistent inspections, testing, and maintenance (ITM)
  2. Implement corrosion monitoring services
  3. Install a corrosion-resistant fire sprinkler with high-quality pipe material
