Ryan Fireprotection experts encounter many different sprinkler system deficiencies on our inspections, but five stand out as the most common issues.
Learn about the top NFPA 72 visual requirements for fire alarm and detection system inspections.
NFPA 72 covers requirements for the installation, performance, testing, inspection, and maintenance of the fire alarm systems. Although visual inspections are normally conducted at the same time as the testing, this article covers the functional testing requirements.
NFPA 25 lists specific requirements for the type of and schedule for required inspections. Here we discuss quarterly and annual fire sprinkler inspections.
On occasion, the results of an Obstruction Investigation require a system flushing. This process clears the piping and components of potential blockages by using a pressurized water source.
Quarterly and annual inspections are the two most common intervals for inspections and testing that Ryan Fireprotection conducts for its clients, for all major fire protection systems.
The NFPA and other accreditation organizations require inspection documents to be maintained by the building owners and/or facility managers. It is prudent for a building owner and/or facility manager to ensure that all required records are in place and up to date, to be ready for any inspection by an AHJ, insurance inspector or compliance auditor.
