Fire Sprinkler Inspection Department

Fire sprinkler protection equipment inspections are a critical part of a comprehensive fire protection plan per NFPA. It is imperative that all equipment and alarms function on a 24/7 basis to ensure proper operation during an emergency.

  • Quarterly fire sprinkler inspection – Quarterly inspections focus on supervisory devices, gauges, and certain mechanical tests as required by NFPA.
  • Annual fire sprinkler inspection Annual inspections are a NFPA requirement, which includes a visual inspection from the floor of the exposed sprinkler system and thorough testing of all mechanical devices.
  • Five-year inspections – Five-year testing is an additional NFPA testing requirement for certain types of sprinkler systems. The five-year inspection is an internal inspection of a portion of the sprinkler system piping and specific sprinkler valves.

What Our Customers Say…

“I have been using Commonwealth Fire Protection for several years now. They are always prompt in both responsiveness and service. Commonwealth works well with client schedules and special requests, and never forwards unwarranted change orders. I wish that all contractors were as easy to work with as CFP.”

About NFPA-25 Fire Sprinkler Inspections

A misconception exists that system / equipment “inspections” are only required to be completed once a year. To the contrary, NFPA-25 is a comprehensive standard that requires Inspection and Testing to be completed incrementally over the life of your fire sprinkler protection system.

Although reporting intervals vary among governing authorities, the fire sprinkler system owner is responsible for the entire scope of NFPA-25.
