Dangers of malfunctioning fire sprinkler systems
- Fires spread quickly, and even a small malfunction can result in significant damage.
- If sprinklers don’t release enough water or don’t aim at the fire, it might reignite.
- Water cannot reach the flames due to blocked sprinkler heads, which makes suppression operations more difficult.
- An accidental release of water can result in significant property damage from moisture and the growth of mould without starting a fire.
- Broken pipes or other parts may burst, causing flooding and uncontrolled leaks, harming electrical systems, personal property, and building structures.
- Delay in evacuation can hinder early detection and safe exit of residents, which may result in fatalities or serious injuries.
- Residents may be at risk for respiratory problems if toxic vapors discharge harmful chemicals into the air.
- Due to potential safety issues and repair expenses, it may have a negative effect on property value.
- Buildings with non-compliant or broken fire sprinkler systems could experience a rise in premiums or a denial of coverage from some insurance providers.
Our commitment to provide reliable fire sprinkler inspections
Los Angeles places a high priority on fire safety and has strict fire sprinkler inspection regulations. Los Angeles Fire Code (LAMC) Chapter 9 provides specific restrictions that apply to both new and existing buildings, including residential and commercial structures. It is necessary to ensure that the system complies with the applicable LAMC revisions as well as the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 25 Standard.
In order to maintain your system, Anchor Fire Protection complies with the LAMC criteria as well as the NFPA 25 maintenance rules. Our thorough fire sprinkler system inspection and testing services are intended to protect property, customers, staff, and residents from harm and damage caused by fires. We also provide fire sprinkler preventive maintenance services for added peace of mind.
The NFPA sets the requirements for maintaining commercial fire sprinkler system testing and annual fire sprinkler inspections. Inspections for anchor fire protection usually consist of:
- Backflow preventers are operating correctly to stop tainted water from getting into the clean water source.
