The Smart Way to Find a Fire Sprinkler Contractor

When Should Fire Sprinklers be Inspected?


Fire sprinkler systems have been protecting people and property against fire for more than a hundred years. Due to codes and standard installation requirements, sprinklers should be expected to perform even after decades of service.

However, nothing lasts forever. It's important to have regular inspections to make sure they operate and perform their job. When should building owners be concerned about the need to have their sprinkler systems inspected?

The NFSA Recommendations:

To ensure high quality performance, the National Fire Sprinkler Association recommends that:

  • Fast response sprinklers (residential, quick response and ESFR) be tested after 20 years
  • All types of sprinklers be tested after 30 years of service
  • All sprinklers subsequently be re-tested at 10-year intervals, and
  • All sprinklers be replaced after 50 years of service
If you need to have your fire sprinklers inspected, post your request on ConstructionDeal.com - for free - and choose how many companies you'd like to bid on the inspection job. This will save you time and money!
