Inspection of Protection System
Fire sprinkler systems can’t just be installed and ignored. A fire sprinkler test or inspection must be performed on a predetermined basis. Even if they’re not legally required, you still need them inspected to ensure proper functioning.
NPFA 25 is the governing regulation for fire sprinkler system inspections. It lists the different inspections to be performed at each level:
- Weekly visual inspections.
- Monthly inspections.
- Detailed quarterly inspections.
- Annual testing.
- Five-year thorough testing.
You can perform your own weekly visual inspections if you wish. The FDNY can even certify a designated employee to perform them. The other inspections and testing, however, must be performed by a licensed Master Fire sprinkler contractor.
Each type of inspection will include the items previously inspected along with more components or tests. For instance, the quarterly inspection will include inspecting the fire sprinkler riser, while the annual one will include a full fire pump test.
All sprinkler inspection companies who operate in The Bronx, Queens, or any borough must be certified by FDNY. Even if your building doesn’t require sprinklers, most insurance companies will provide a massive discount on their policy costs if you have a working sprinkler system and all your inspections logged.
Allstate Sprinkler does this for you. We record every aspect of our inspections and keep copies of these records in the cloud for immediate availability. If your insurance company – or the City of New York – has any questions or threatens a violation, we have all the information at the click of a mouse.
Retail Store Fire Sprinkler Violations (and How to Remove Them)
Not all retail stores are required to have sprinkler systems. However, if the building you’re in is at least 100 feet tall or in a residential building, chances are you must install and maintain a certified system. Allstate Sprinkler can help you determine what laws cover you.
Most FDNY violations in Brooklyn and Staten Island are for improper record keeping. If you use Allstate Sprinkler, that won’t happen. In many cases, more serious violations can have their fines either reduced or eliminated once proof of compliance is given.
We also repair all types of fire sprinkler systems – even ones designed by other companies. We maintain a fully self-sufficient operation and have a huge supply of fittings and parts.
