The importance of a fully operational fire sprinkler system cannot be overstated. There are a number of common sprinkler system issues that can result in deficiencies. At LKPB Engineers, we offer a comprehensive analysis of your current sprinkler system to detect any abnormalities. Correcting these issues not only protects your building but those inside as well. Whether you’re looking to correct existing issues or implement a custom-designed fire sprinkler system, our experts can help. Here are common issues that may need your attention:

 

Fire Sprinkler Water Supply

All fire sprinkler systems must be regularly inspected to ensure they are in proper working order. An analysis of your existing system can alert you to potentially hazardous conditions. At LKPB, our experts perform a comprehensive water flow analysis for your system. This analysis is used to determine if your current water supply can meet demands in the event of an emergency. If we discover a deficiency, we can fit your system with the proper pump to meet regulations.

 

Loaded or Painted Sprinkler Heads

A common occurrence among commercial buildings, painted heads can present a true hazard. Often times, careless contractors may paint over existing sprinkler heads. When the head is clogged with paint, it cannot function properly. Likewise, unavoidable dust accumulation can also present a danger. Both conditions prevent the sprinkler head from releasing water in the event of an emergency. The best solution for compromised sprinkler heads is a simple replacement. For optimal protection, LKPB offers both repair and replacement services to ensure your building’s safety.

 

Inappropriate System Design

A number of fire sprinkler malfunctions are due to inappropriate fire sprinkler design. When designing these systems, several factors must be taken into consideration. Building size, occupancy classification and commodity type must all be appropriately determined. If your building’s sprinkler system does not comply with these parameters, it may not provide adequate protection. Our team of experts will provide a comprehensive analysis of your building’s fire sprinkler system. In doing so, we can determine if your system requires updates or repairs and offer suggestions for implementation.
