Fire Sprinkler Design Services: Everything You Need to Know

  • January 1, 2022

Fire safety starts long before a fire could even happen. This is why insurance regulation or authorities having jurisdiction’s deficiency notice set parameters around fire sprinkler systems. Emergency risks decrease when you are fully prepared.

Not all fire sprinkler systems are created equal—and that’s what makes them effective. Customized fire sprinkler designs allow business owners the peace of mind to know that their specific space is protected. To fully prepare against an emergency, it’s best to seek solutions tailored to your environment. There are unique challenges in every building that need to be addressed by professionals who have years of problem-solving experience to guide their recommendations.

At A&A Fire Protection, we help our clients seamlessly move from consultation to design and installation, followed by ongoing inspection and renovation assessments. Here’s a quick breakdown of that process:

Consultation

Before a design can begin, it’s important to build a foundation of information. As your partner, our goal is to ensure your fire sprinkler system meets regulatory requirements and is cost-effective for your budget. A consultation helps our team understand the scope of your needs, align our goals as partners and manage expectations for the project.

Design

When it’s time to bring the ideas to life, our team of NICET (National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies) certified designers get to work. Their role is to create your fire sprinkler system design that meets industry standards, regulatory codes, and system requirements. To develop a fire sprinkler design that meets these parameters and fits your budget, our team leverages efficient design criteria and optimized material utilization. Some of the systems our team focus on include:

  • New Installation with NICET Design
  • Wet Pipe Fire Sprinkler Suppression System
  • Dry Pipe Fire Sprinkler Suppression System
  • Pre Action Fire Suppression System

This design phase is one of the most valuable steps in our process. A decision is easier made in pencil than it is during implementation. Our team focuses on tight collaboration across regulators, design experts, fitters, and your team to make the best decisions possible.

Installation

Our local fabrication shop and expert fitters begin the official build and installation when the final configurations are approved. Their work follows the intricate sprinkler system specifications from the design team. We also offer 3D/BIM services to provide full visualization for the project and ensure transparency throughout the build. 

Inspection and Renovation

Once a build is complete, experts recommend scheduling annual inspections to ensure all equipment is working properly. Common inspections include:

  • NFPA #5 Compliant 
  • Fire Pump Inspection
  • Wet/Dry Pipe Fire Sprinkler Suppression Inspection
  • Preaction Sprinkler Inspection
  • Deluge Fire Sprinkler Inspection
  • Private Fire Hydrants

These inspections help us let you know when or if a renovation is required. Existing sprinkler systems still need repairs from time to time, and as equipment advances, system elements need to be replaced.

Ongoing Support for Your Fire Sprinkler Design

Our design services don’t end with installation. Beyond inspections or renovations, our team is committed to providing training, equipment testing, and 24-hour support to your organization. Our support service lines are always available to our clients, with the fast response times needed when an emergency hits.
