Other Essential Fire Safety Systems We Service

Backflow Preventers

To prevent water supply contamination, backflow preventers must be installed at most commercial properties. If your property already has a backflow preventer, you must have it tested annually by a third-party professional fire protection company.

Fire Pumps

Fire pumps are typically used in structures over 400 to 500 feet tall and in lower-set buildings that are difficult for fire fighting equipment to reach. A fire pump works by increasing the pressure in water-based fire protection systems where the water source isn’t sufficient for the system it’s supplying. Like all our fire safety systems, Firetech’s fire pumps are crafted to your building’s unique requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions About Fire Sprinklers

A building’s fire sprinklers activate when they detect an air temperature exceeding 165 degrees Fahrenheit. They do not, however, activate when smoke is present, which is the function of smoke detectors. Fire sprinklers won’t activate unless flames are present in the area.

If you’re unsure whether your Montpelier commercial or residential building needs a fire sprinkler system installed, consult an experienced fire protection contractor familiar with Vermont’s fire codes. Most commercial buildings, including office buildings, retail establishments, healthcare facilities, educational institutions, and hotels and motels, are legally required to have fire sprinklers installed.

Yes. Fire alarms and fire sprinklers serve two distinct functions. Fire alarms warn people to evacuate the area and let first responders know a fire exists that needs extinguishing. Fire sprinklers, on the other hand, go straight to work at putting out the flames. The high heat sets off one sprinkler head at a time to minimize property damage, but the goal is to douse the blaze as quickly as possible.
