Fire Sprinkler System Inspections

May 8, 2013 by Total Fire and Safety

Properly installed and maintained automatic fire sprinkler systems help save lives. Because fire sprinkler systems react so quickly, they can dramatically reduce the heat, flames and smoke produced in a fire.

Superior field service is a fundamental strength of Total Fire & Safety and has made us the preferred service provider for thousands of customers. We offer the full range of scheduled fire sprinkler inspections and maintenance services, as well as 24-hour/365-day emergency service.

We service sprinkler systems in commercial structures. We also test fire hoses. Our technicians are highly trained and state certified. Our service trucks carry everything needed to get the job done right. Various parts of fire sprinkler systems must be tested at different intervals per NFPA 25.

Below are some of the items tested during an inspection:

  • Are systems functional upon arrival?
  • Are gauges good and reading correctly?
  • Are main control valves open?
  • Do control valves operate through full range?
  • Valves are lubricated as needed.
  • Are there extra sprinkler heads in cabinet?
  • Is the building heated in wet sprinkler area?
  • Are the water motor and gong functional?
  • Is the electric alarm test satisfactory?
  • Are the alarm devices functional & free of damage?
  • Is stock and storage 18″ below the sprinklers?
  • Alarm time delayed in seconds?
  • More testing depending on system type
