Fire Sprinkler Repair Services in Nassau County

New York City has seen its share of terrible fires. Fortunately, the city has learned from experience that most fires are preventable. The ones that aren’t can be successfully contained from spreading with the most effective fire sprinkler equipment – a working fire sprinkler system.

Fire sprinklers are your first, and most effective line of defense against property damage in New York City. Studies show that buildings with working, active fire sprinkler systems incur 60% less damage than buildings without sprinklers.

Recently, NYC has stepped up enforcement of sprinkler system rules, issuing far more citations and following through with violations. To avoid them, you must use a licensed fire sprinkler contractor and license fire extinguisher contractor.

FDNY Regulations

The FDNY has strict requirements about who can inspect, test, install, and repair fire sprinkler systems and portable fire extinguishers. Inspections used to be considerably more haphazard than they are today. After many years of unscrupulous and inexperienced companies performing a poor job of inspection and testing, strict regulations were imposed throughout the County of Nassau County.

All sprinkler systems in Nassau County must be inspected and repaired as per the National Fire Protection Association #25 standard by a licensed Master Fire sprinkler contractor. This standard has clear inspection requirements included, but not limited to:

  • A weekly basic visual inspection.
  • A monthly visual inspection and partial testing.
  • A quarterly visual inspection with added testing.
  • An annual visual inspection with a thorough fire sprinkler test.

During the tests, the fire sprinkler pump and any powered devices may need to be run. If you notice anything unusual, the sooner you let us know, the less likely you are to receive a Notice of Violation.

Causes of Fire Sprinkler Failure

As fire sprinkler systems age, they naturally experience some deterioration. However, accidents or vandalism are the leading cause of malfunctions. Some accidental causes include:

  • Frozen pipes due to freezing weather and inadequate heat.
  • Employees strike the fire sprinkler components with forklifts or heavy objects.
  • Items stacked too high strike a sprinkler head.

Common Questions

Q: Can a Sprinkler Activate by Accident?

A: There is a slim possibility of this happening – but very slim indeed. About 1 in 16 million sprinkler heads are triggered outside of a fire event. The main cause is either sabotage or improper design criteria that fails to consider a high-heat location.
