Fire Sprinkler Design

Designing a commercial fire sprinkler system requires understanding the hazards involved so that the potential for fire and threats to life safety during a fire are prevented. Firetech’s NICET-certified designers use advanced computer technology to custom design sprinkler systems for various industries.

We follow a five-step design process to build fire sprinkler systems for a wide variety of applications:

  • Step 1: Evaluate the building’s water supply.
  • Step 2: Determine system needs.
  • Step 3: Calculate the amount of protection required.
  • Step 4: Select and install sprinklers.
  • Step 5: Select and install pipes.

Fire Sprinkler Installations

For a fire sprinkler system to be effective, it must be installed by trained professionals. Firetech’s technicians are experts in installing all commercial fire sprinkler systems, including wet, dry, or pre-action systems. Your system will be installed right the first time, no matter how complex its design.

Fire Sprinkler Inspections, Testing & Maintenance

Most states require professional inspections of commercial fire sprinkler systems annually, and building owners should examine their sprinkler systems weekly. Firetech’s multi-certified technicians are trained to perform all needed NFPA inspections and testing to ensure your fire sprinkler system is regulation compliant and functions properly.

Backflow Preventers

The fire protection industry does its part to protect water supplies. A backflow preventer keeps your building’s pressurized fire sprinkler water line from flowing back into the municipal water, where it can contaminate the water system.

Fire Pumps

Often used in buildings taller than 400 to 500 feet, fire pumps increase the pressure in water-based fire protection systems when the water source isn’t adequate for the system it’s supplying. They’re equally effective in lower-set buildings where main water pressures or fire fighting equipment can’t reach. Like all our fire safety systems, our fire pumps are crafted for your building’s unique requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions About Fire Sprinklers

Fire sprinklers are activated when they detect an air temperature exceeding 165 degrees Fahrenheit, not when there is smoke present (which is a job for smoke detectors). A fire sprinkler doesn’t activate unless there are flames in the room.

If you’re in doubt about whether your building or facility needs a fire sprinkler system, consult with an experienced fire protection contractor who’s familiar with the fire codes in your area. Most commercial buildings, including office buildings, healthcare facilities, educational institutions, and hotels and motels, are required by law to have fire sprinklers installed.
