Why Do I Need a Fire Suppression System Inspection?

It is a Fire Code requirement. Building owners can be held liable for property damage and loss of life in a building that has not been properly maintained and inspected. That is something that should not and does not have to happen. If a fire should occur, occupant safety is number one, and a properly working fire suppression system can minimize or interrupt damage to your building.


Fire Code Requirements

The responsibility for properly maintaining a water-based fire protection system shall be that of the owner of the property. Using periodic inspections, testing, and maintenance, the equipment shall be shown to be in good operating condition or any defects or impairments shall be revealed.

The property owner or occupant shall promptly correct, or repair deficiencies, damaged parts, or impairments found while performing the inspection, test, and maintenance requirements of this standard.

Commercial Fire Rating Schedule (CFRS) section 402 requires building owners to have annual inspections of sprinkler systems to receive a “sprinkled” insurance rate. Overdue or non-existent inspections will raise insurance premiums.
