Choosing a Fire Suppression System in Newark, NJ
Are you certain that your sprinkler system would activate and control the fire if your building caught on fire today? As a building owner, you must be 100% sure that there is no chance your fire suppression system in Newark, NJ, won’t do what it is supposed to do. Below are some tips to increase the chances that your system protects your people, possessions, and property.
Sprinkler System Design & Maintenance
Building owners should contact their sprinkler contractors any time there is a switch in tenants. Sprinkler systems are not designed for all kinds of tenants. The sprinkler contractor will need to evaluate your system to make sure it is designed to meet the needs of the new tenant.
Annual Sprinkler System Inspection
Choose to work with Campbell Fire Protection Inc., a qualified contractor for any kind of fire suppression system in Newark, NJ, for your annual sprinkler inspection. The contractor’s annual process includes inspection and maintenance of the sprinkler heads, riser pipe, valves, fire pump, and testing of the main drain. Also, if your sprinkler system includes an anti-freeze loop or dry pipe valve, these need to be checked annually as well.
Five-Year Internal Assessment
An internal assessment of your fire suppression system in Newark, NJ, needs to be done by a qualified contractor every five years to ensure there are no foreign materials in your sprinkler system piping or system blockages that prevent the system from functioning properly. For example, items that might prevent a sprinkler from activating include rust, sludge, and rocks.
Minimum Clearances & Damage
A minimum of 18 inches of clearance must be maintained below all sprinkler heads to allow the water being discharged to reach the fire. Any time a sprinkler head is damaged be sure to contact your sprinkler contractor. Damaged sprinklers do not activate when they need to, or they may activate at the wrong time, which can cause a large amount of water damage.
Check Water Intake Connections
Make sure the caps on the water intake connections are clear. The connections must be clear so that the fire department can easily hook into your building to assist your sprinkler system. Be sure the area around the fire department connections is visible, clear of debris, and easily accessed.
