How is a Fire Sprinkler Different From a Smoke Alarm?
Many property owners new to fire sprinkler installations think these systems can detect smoke. They do not.
While a smoke alarm is triggered by rising smoke, a fire sprinkler activates when it senses extreme heat.
When a fire starts on the ground, the heat eventually rises; the sprinkler then senses that change in temperature and activates.
Having Trouble With Your Sprinkler System?
Although today’s modern sprinkler systems are known for their reliability and fast response times when in contact with heat, they are still liable to problems (such as corrosion in the piping).
We recommend having any problems handled right away not only to keep up with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) codes, but also to help control potential fires while your staff and guests evacuate.
Because of the dangers involved in a poorly installed sprinkler system, local fire marshals recommend testing your units a minimum of four times per year.
We know that a poor sprinkler inspection can wind up putting a damper on your entire operation. That’s why we adhere to a time-tested inspection procedure that takes into account local, state, and federal regulations to ensure that your system is functioning properly and keeping your business safe.
What are Problems That Can Affect Your Sprinkler System?
Frozen pipes in your fire sprinkler system are common problems.
Even though many property owners view frozen pipes as a temporary concern that only plagues them during the winter months, the effects of a frozen pipe can be far more chronic than you might believe.
If a pipe freezes, it becomes more susceptible to leaking and bursting; in short, one problem leads to several other problems that can weaken your pipes over time. With the specialized care of Maccarone Plumbing, any problems affecting your sprinkler system will be diagnosed and repaired in a timely manner.
