Fire sprinkler systems are a standard requirement when it comes to building codes. There is a lot more to sprinklers than setting it and forgetting about it. The misuse or degradation of your impairment or water supply to the sprinkler system can have serious consequences. Sprinklers require periodic testing, maintenance, and inspection in order to ensure the best and safest sprinkler function. If they are not properly tested and maintained, you could expect fines or citations in your near future. Here is some more information regarding the importance of fire sprinkler inspections.
The National Fire Protection Association
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) publishes regulations and standards when it comes to fire sprinkler systems that are automatic. The Standard for the Installation of Automatic Sprinkler Systems is a primary reference that is used by local fire fighters and authorities in order to provide a simple guide to using your fire sprinkler system as well as how to install it. In order to learn more about installation practices, visit the NFPA’s website.
When it comes to fire-control performance and sprinkler systems, it is focused primarily on the water supply that is available. A well-designed water sprinkler system is based on the peak pressure and flow as well as the water supply. If your sprinkler system has accurate water flow and system pressure, then your system will work properly. If not, then it could malfunction which could then cause a dangerous fire to spread. It is important to make sure that your sprinkler system is operating with the right water flow and pressure.
