Fire Sprinkler System Installation in NYC

A properly working and tested fire sprinkler system is one the most important actions you can take to prevent deaths and save property during a fire emergency.
A recent study by the National Fire Protection Association identified sprinklered buildings with an 87 percent lower rate of fatalities than non-sprinklered buildings and 97 percent of fires were confined to the original room where they started.

The National Fire Protection Association issues guidelines for all local municipalities pertaining to minimum installation, testing and inspection requirements.

Most commercial and many multi-family residential buildings require an active fire sprinkler system to be installed by a licensed master fire suppression contractor (LMFSC).

NFPA # 25 Regulations

In 2012, New York City adopted the NFPA #25 testing and inspection requirements for water-based fire protection systems. All new installations as well as all existing systems in place must meet NFPA, FDNY and New York City Department of Building Code requirements. Almost all new commercial and new residential construction requires sprinklers. These regulations have been developed over many decades from real-world experience. The NFPA #13 standard provides guidance for new sprinkler system installations including all aspects of a fire sprinkler system’s design and components.

Some of those design items are:

  • Spacing of sprinkler heads.
  • Pipe sizes.
  • Type of sprinkler heads.
  • Quantify of sprinkler heads.
  • Hydraulic calculations.
  • Seismic bracing requirements.
  • Water demand and volume of water requirements.
  • Hydrostatic testing requirements.

The FDNY is a life-saving entity and is extremely proactive issuing Notice of Violations to those who do not maintain their fire sprinkler systems. The FDNY issued thousands of violations in 2019 and if you do receive a Notice of Violation, you’ll have to either repair or install a system; can face very serious fines and may even have your business shut down or a residential building declared uninhabitable.
