Not only do we offer Clearwater fire sprinkler installation services, but we’re extremely knowledgable about all things Fire & Life Safety. Here are some requirements regarding your commercial building.
There’s no denying sprinkler systems are essential in a commercial structure. These systems are a crucial element of safety for the occupants of the building and security for the property itself. This is why it’s a requirement, as per the NFPA 13, to initiate a Clearwater fire sprinkler installation in your commercial building.
The national standard established the conditions and procedures for installing sprinkler systems and gave builders, managers and owners a consistent set of requirements for meeting Fire Safety expectations. We’re sharing some of the most important requirements below:
- Buildings more than 55 feet tall must have automatic sprinkler systems installed throughout the building.
- Automatic fire sprinkler systems must be installed in all new construction commercial buildings with a fire area that exceeds 5,000 square feet. This also includes any remodeling jobs that extend the fire area beyond 5,000 square feet, as well as any expansion for a single tenant space requiring a new certificate of occupancy that increases the fire area beyond 12,000 square feet.
- Sprinkler systems must be installed in all townhomes that involve two or more residential units per building.
- Self-storage facilities are required to have automatic sprinklers installed throughout the facility.
- All water supply control valves must be accessible for easy operation.
- Fire pumps should be installed to increase the amount of pressure in a fire sprinkler system when the system is fed by a non-pressurized water tank.
