Fire Sprinkler Systems

Return to the Fire Prevention and Safety Page

As we approach the time of year that temperatures drop below freezing, we encourage you to inspect your building to make sure that your fire sprinkler system is ready for winter.  While we hope that a fire sprinkler system is never needed, its maintenance is essential to be prepared to do its job in an emergency.

 

COMMERCIAL FIRE SPRINKLER SYSTEMS MAINTENANCE

The following are some tips that will help prepare your system for the winter:

 

         Check sprinkler valves to make sure they are on. 

         Never turn heat completely off in a fire sprinklered building.

         Check insulation to make sure it remains in place over pipes.  If there has been work in the attic during the last year, it should be checked.

         Makes sure that doors, building access points, and attic covers are in place to reduce the possibility of cold air entering the building.

         Have your system serviced annually by a sprinkler professional.

         Dry Systems make sure that ALL water is drained from the system.  If the system tripped, contact a fire sprinkler service company to reset the system.

         Antifreeze Systems have a fire sprinkler professional check the system annually just before freezing weather to make sure the solution will not freeze.
