Fire sprinklers not only protect your property investment and the people in it, they’re required by law.
When a fire starts, it only takes minutes to cause extensive damage to a commercial building – unless your building is protected by fire sprinklers, that is.
A properly installed fire suppression system is designed to activate only in areas where the fire breaks out, thus containing and limiting fire damage to local areas where the sprinkler system activates. This allows enough time for the fire department to arrive and fully contain the risk of further fire and damage.
Our comprehensive services are tailored to meet all the fire safety needs of businesses and homes in the Bay Area & Silicon Valley, from fire sprinkler system design and installation to routine inspections, testing, maintenance, and repairs.
In addition, our team of highly trained professionals will ensure that your fire sprinkler system adheres to the latest industry standards, all the while helping you maintain compliance with California laws and regulations as well as prevent the loss of precious human life and protect your property investment.
What are the fire sprinkler requirements for commercial properties in the Bay Area & Silicon Valley?
- All new commercial buildings which are 3,600 square feet and above are required to have fire sprinklers.
- For those buildings that have existing occupancies and where additions are made that bring the total square footage to exceed 3,600 square feet require fire sprinklers be installed.
- If there is a change of use or occupancy in a building that exceeds 3,600 square feet, an approved fire automated fire sprinkler system must also be installed.
- Insurance underwriters check to see that buildings are compliant and that the mandated inspections as laid out in the fire code are adhered to.
