What To Look For When Updating Your Sprinkler System

Checking your fire sprinkler system this year should be on your list of things to get checked, especially now that the new year is well underway. A broken sprinkler system increases the risk of danger because it may not function properly. As a result, if there were a fire, there would be less chance of saving loved ones’ lives. This emphasises how crucial it is to have your fire sprinklers inspected.

How Often Should A Sprinkler System Be Checked?

An annual beck is necessary due to the significance of service and maintenance; this is stated in the BS EN 12845, which reads as follows: “The sprinkler system should be periodically inspected at least once a year by a third party”

Who Can Check A Fire Sprinkler System?

A certified fire protection technician is required to carry out the annual ten-year fire sprinkler system inspections, as well as system maintenance, testing, and repairs. Comprehensive records and the ability to produce these maintenance records upon request shall be retained for a minimum of one year. Additionally, to make records easily accessible from a single source, it is advised to use fire sprinkler inspection companies that can service all of your locations. You can prevent code violations and fire safety failures by keeping these inspections up to date.

What Will A Third Party Check?

The third party who checks the sprinkler system will complete a full system assessment. This includes:

  • A visual inspection of the age and condition of the system
  • A review of hazards including processes and storage arrangements
  • Reviewing water supply tests
  • A check to see if the pump and tank systems operate as supposed to
  • A check to see if the system is linked to an alarm system that operates when a flow test is conducted
  • Check that the system valve sets are secured open and clearly labelled
  • Review the current testing regime
  • Impact analysis and practical guidance if improvements are necessary

I have used RAD for a couple of projects and found them to be good to deal with. They did a pair of 3 storey open plan houses and seven three and four story town houses. The sprinklers were to improve fire safety, allow more flexible space and comply with building regulations. The sprinklers were far more cost effective than the mist type systems and look very discrete when installed.

It has been a pleasure to deal with RAD for installation of fire sprinklers at our site is Sevenoaks. They were fast, professional, working to time and quote, which made it easy to work with them.

My requirement was a bit unusual for RAD in that I wanted a mist system in one room of a rented house. I had no drawings or technical back up. RAD were very helpful and repositioned the unit after the initial installation. Luckily with the help of Sonny, the engineer it all worked out very well.

As somebody who feels that it should be a necessity for all properties to have fire sprinkler systems, I am a big fan of this company. I have used them numerous times to service my home system and they are very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend their service.
