Owning properties is potentially expensive if fire safety requirements are not met. One of the building’s safety features that must never be neglected is the sprinkler system. Many people may think that allocating funds for inspection procedures is costly. However, not doing so may actually cost you more money when fire damage occurs. Disregarding the importance of sprinkler system inspections may lead to destruction of properties and even cost the lives of those who were inside the building.
ASCO Fire conducts sprinkler system inspections to determine a building’s compliance to fire codes. Our recommendations are important to meet the clients’ needs and in meeting insurance requirements. Our services help ensure that the building and its contents are protected with a properly working sprinkler system.
What are Sprinkler System Inspections?
As an integral part of a fire protection plan, the sprinkler system should be inspected and repaired accordingly. The inspection process is varied according to the schedule. It can be done quarterly, semiannually, or annually. Some of the tasks are easy enough to let the in-house management team handle on their own. There are also modes of inspection that will require experts in order to generate the best performance overview of the sprinkler system.
The inspections will involve checking control valves and gauges, going-over the electrical parts including the alarm system, accessibility checks, and a thorough inspection of all visible components.

- Medical facilities
