Fire Sprinkler System Design
NFPA 13 – Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems
This standard provides a range of sprinkler system approaches, design development alternatives, and component options that are all acceptable. Building owners and their designated representatives are advised to carefully evaluate proposed selections for appropriateness and preference. 1.1.1 This standard shall provide the minimum requirements for the design and installation of automatic fire sprinkler systems and exposure protection sprinkler systems covered within this standard. 1.1.2 This standard shall not provide requirements for the design or installation of water mist fire protection systems, which are not considered fire sprinkler systems and are addressed by NFPA 750. 1.1.3* This standard is written with the assumption that the sprinkler system shall be designed to protect against a single fire originating within the building. A.1.1.3 This standard also provides guidance for the installation of systems for exterior protection and specific hazards. Where these systems are installed, they are also designed for protection of a fire from a single ignition source.
Fire Sprinkler System Maintenance
Progressive Fire Solution will ensure your system is in perfect working order.
Fire sprinkler inspection schedules are determined by the local code enforcement. Typically, you will find fire sprinkler inspections are required annually, semiannually, quarterly and sometimes monthly. The inspection schedule is determined by the local code, the building occupancy type, and which components are used in the fire sprinkler system. For instance, in a high-rise you will normally find a fire pump, which boosts the pressure of the fire sprinkler system in order to ensure the proper water pressure is reached even at the very top of the building. A fire pump changes the fire sprinkler requirements and the schedule.
Writing the Local Code for Fire Sprinkler Inspections
The local code is dictated by the National Fire Protection Association’s code NFPA 25, which is the standard for the inspection, testing, and maintenance of water-based fire protection systems. The International Building Code (IBC) is also used to shape the local codes for fire sprinklers. Each state and jurisdiction have their own additions to the standards adopted from NFPA 25 and IBC.

Make sure your building, employees, customers, assets, and valuables are safe and secure by installing a fire sprinkler system in your office or government building.
Did your latest routine fire sprinkler system inspection reveal one or more problems with your fire sprinkler system? Progressive Fire Solution can help. We have trained technicians on staff who are able to perform all vital fire sprinkler system services and repairs to maintain your system’s optimal performance.
Hydrant Flow Test
Hydrant flow tests are conducted to determine water availability in planning for firefighting activities, fire sprinkler systems or domestic water demand.
The tests are also useful in determining the general condition of the water distribution system by detecting closed valves or wall deposits. A well-maintained water system enables firefighters to extinguish flames and prevent large- scale damage or loss of life.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD A HYDRANT BE FLOW TESTED?
- AWWA recommends flow testing all areas at least every 10 years. (AWWA M17).
- NFPA requires flow testing of underground and exposed piping at least once every 5 years (NFPA 291)
