allstate sprinkler service trucks on streets of new yorkAllstate Sprinkler Corp is NY’s choice when it comes to protecting your Nassau County buildings from fires. All building owners and managers want to keep their property, customers and employees safe, and one of the biggest concerns is fire safety. Fires in a commercial building can be catastrophic, leading to injury and death, as well as destroying property and inventory. NY building code requires that commercial buildings be equipped with fire sprinkler systems that meets certain standards.

The National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) fact sheet on sprinkler systems is quite telling when it comes to why they’re so important. For every 1,000 fires in a structure that has sprinklers, around 20 firefighters are injured. That number triples to 61 in buildings where there are no automatic extinguishing systems, such as a sprinkler.

Fire Sprinkler Installation

Fire sprinkler systems are among the most important safety components in a fire protection plan. It’s therefore essential that the right fire protection partner is chosen to design, install, repair, replace and maintain the system. Fire sprinkler installations are completed in several phases

  1. Pre-Installation: where we review fire sprinkler blueprints, define any special materials to be used and build a comprehensive project plan.
  2. Define the layout of the sprinkler system. This is where we determine the location of the following items: sprinkler heads, control valves, check valves, pressure gauges, main drains, alarms, inspector’s test valve, water pipe hangers, main water and branch lines.
  3. Order and delivery of fire sprinkler equipment and material.
  4. Installation is performed by our certified team, trained to operate at the highest caliber of quality and safety.
  5. Testing and completion includes hydrostatic testing and FDNY approval.

Fire sprinkler inspection

Allstate Sprinkler Corp is here to help with services such as sprinkler system inspection, testing and repair. Fire sprinkler systems are required to be inspected annually, semiannually, quarterly or sometimes monthly in accordance with NFPA 25. A building’s automatic fire sprinkler system is the first line of defense in the event fire breaks out, so they’re an important fire safety measure in your building. Fire sprinklers can control a fire and keep it small while protecting occupants from harm and saving your business.  The experienced team at Allstate Sprinkler ensure they’re in working order with regular fire sprinkler inspections, as well as follow maintenance and testing timelines. When you follow the required fire sprinkler system inspections and testing, as well as sprinkler system maintenance schedules set by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the FDNY, you ensure your system operates as it was designed to minimize the risk of damage and loss of life should there ever be a fire.

Fire Sprinkler Repair

No matter how magnificent your fire sprinkler system is, at some point in its life it will experience corrosion, which leads to leaks. There are actually a number of things that can happen to a system that will compromise its ability to work effectively. Here are examples of common repairs:

  • Equipment failure.
  • Leaks from faulty or damaged pipes, seals or fittings.
  • Loose or broken sprinklers.

Backflow Preventer Inspection

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) holds local water suppliers responsible for maintaining a certain level of purity in the potable water supply. State regulations and local municipalities require backflow preventers to be installed in most types of commercial properties to prevent the possibility of contaminated water from entering the city’s water supply. Since the local water supply is used for fire sprinklers, there is a requirement to have a backflow preventer installed to prevent any possible contamination back into the city’s water supply.

An annual inspection of the backflow preventer by a certified backflow prevention inspector such as Allstate Sprinkler is required, as well as if the system is repaired, replaced, or relocated. Your fire sprinkler backflow prevention devices need to be tested and maintained to avoid costly NYC Dept of Environmental Protection (DEP) fines.

NFPA 25 Internal Pipe Inspections

Over time, the flow of water that feeds the fire sprinkler systems may get impacted because of obstructions in the water pipes from elements such as rust, slime and dirt. If the water pipes become restricted or blocked, water pressure may drop to such an extent that water is unable to make it to the sprinkler heads and extinguish a fire. This can be a problem, and there’s no way to tell if there are any pipe obstructions unless the building’s pipes are inspected.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) requires that a building’s sprinkler system have a mandated 5-year internal inspection to examine the interior of your system’s piping and components.
