Sprinkler Systems 

Black Tusk Fire & Security Inc is certified to install, repair and inspect all types of sprinkler systems and backflow prevention devices.  

Inspections and testing of fire sprinkler systems are performed in accordance with current NFPA standards, insurance carrier requirements, and/or local authorities.

 

Fire sprinkler system is an active fire protection measure, consisting of a water supply, providing adequate pressure and flow rate to a water distribution piping system, onto which fire sprinklers are connected.

 

NFPA 25 requires:

  • Annual Inspection of your Fire Sprinkler system

  • Annual Winterization (dry systems) - As the weather changes and temperature drops, your Dry pipe system may experience condensation which may result in water accumulation in the sprinkler piping. This build up of water in the piping may be subject to freezing which could cause cracks or burst piping.

  • 3 year full flow trip test – Ensures adequate operation or dry pipe value and quick opening device (QOD), confirmation that water flows through the system efficiently to the end of line within 60 seconds

  • 5 year standpipe flow test – Ensures adequate flow for the buildings sprinkler system

 

A fire sprinkler is the part of a fire sprinkler system that discharges water when the effects of a fire have been detected, such as when a predetermined temperature has been reached.

 

If your house, residential apartment building or commercial building requires a sprinkler system we can discuss design guidelines and take your from the very start to the hand over. All our services are approved National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 13D, (NFPA) 13R, and (NFPA) 13
