Fire Alarm Testing

When it comes to protecting your property and the people in it from the dangers of fire, early warning and a fast response can make a critical difference in avoiding a catastrophe. A properly installed, maintained, and inspected fire alarm system is essential to alert and evacuate the occupants of a building and summon emergency personnel in the event of a fire emergency.

From smoke, fire, and heat detection and suppression to voice evacuation and mass notification, the capabilities of your system will match the unique requirements of your operation and your facility.  That is why it’s so important to have your fire alarm system tested & inspected annually in accordance with NFPA 72 standards, and to have any identified deficiencies corrected in a timely manner. Protegis Fire & Safety has the experience, workforce, and capability to perform these inspection and remediation services in facilities of any size and type.  We also provide 24/7 emergency service to take care of the unexpected!

5-Year Inspections are Essential!

NFPA standards require comprehensive inspections of piping systems every five years. The 5-Year Obstruction Inspection is a thorough examination of internal valves and piping for various types of insidious, flow-limiting buildup. It can uncover hidden signs of such deterioration as Microbially Induced Corrosion (MIC), one of the inherent woes of metal sprinkler pipes which, if not caught early, can cause enough damage to ultimately require the replacement of the entire sprinkler piping system.  You don’t want or need that expense!  Constriction can also be caused by the introduction and accumulation of sediment during construction, or even from nearby municipal water system repairs. The internal inspection of valves includes removing the valve covers to inspect their internal elements – strainers, filters and restriction orifices – for visible evidence of blockage.

Although we hope you’ll never require it, you depend upon your fire sprinkler system to protect your property from the costly ravages of fire.  Don’t wait until you need it to perform to find out that it’s blocked!  Scheduling a 5-year Obstruction Inspection of your system, as required by NFPA-25 standards, is the best way to peace of mind. Protegis Fire & Safety can conduct a 5-year inspection to keep your facility in compliance with code, save you money in the long term by identifying early signs of blockage or corrosion, and assure you that your sprinklers will function when you most need them.  We can also offer you system flushes to help remove accumulated deposits found during these inspections to keep your facility in compliance with code, save you money in the long term by identifying early signs of blockage or corrosion, and assure you that your sprinklers will function when you most need them.  We can also offer you system flushes to help remove accumulated deposits found during these inspections.
