Fire Suppression System Requirements
Fire suppression systems are specialized systems that often work in conjunction with a fire alarm system for the safety and protection of an area or building. Different types of fire suppression systems include:
1. Wet or dry sprinkler systems
2. Pre-action or deluge sprinkler systems
3. Special hazards extinguishing systems
4. Clean agent systems
5. Wet or dry chemical systems
6. Portable fire extinguishers
7. Fire hydrants
8. Backflow preventers
Testing and maintenance of fire suppression systems have many different requirements. Raksha has NICET Certified Experts in Special Hazards as well as NAFED trained technicians that understand the complexity and sensitivity of these systems. When your system needs to be tested, Raksha will verify all of the activations and ensure that whatever they protect will remain completely operational and safe.
Fire Suppression Inspection
The goal of fire suppression inspections is to assist building owners and managers in identifying potential problems or malfunctions before they cause any issues. Raksha technicians perform visual inspections to identify adequate protection, system status, placement, recent discharges, and layout changes. When fire suppression inspection deficiencies are found, our experts immediately forward you the information that’s necessary to repair the system. When possible, recommendations include details such as budget, pricing, and the duration of the repairs or required maintenance.
Fire Suppression Testing
Depending on the system and its requirements, fire suppression testing is typically conducted semiannually or annually. In order to test many fire suppression systems, a blended expertise in fire detection, sprinkler, and clean agent or chemical systems is necessary. Raksha experts are NICET Certified and experienced in these varying areas in order to provide a unique and full service response. No matter what type of fire suppression testing you need, Raksha will make sure it’s completed and documented properly.
Fire Suppression Maintenance
Continuous and consistent fire suppression maintenance and repairs is the key to keeping your facility safe. Raksha creates a program based maintenance plan that’s tailored to your needs and specific equipment.
