Ensuring that the fire safety systems in a commercial property are functioning properly is a critical responsibility of any building owner. Not only can these systems protect your building from irreparable damage, they can save of the lives of the people inside them.
To meet this responsibility, it’s important that your pipes and fittings are tested and certified, not just the sprinklers themselves, because they can affect your entire system’s operation and performance.
That’s why we’ve designed a testing service that specifically evaluates fittings, including adjustable drop nipples, flexible sprinkler hose fittings, pipes and pipe hanger equipment, to determine their suitability and durability for use in water-based fire suppression system piping.
During these tests, pipe and fitting assemblies are subjected to performance tests, such as leakage, hydrostatic pressure, low temperature and bending. Thermoplastic pipe and fitting assemblies are also subjected to extended-term hydrostatic pressure tests and assembling tests. Systems intended for exposed installations are subjected to fire exposure tests while pipe hanger devices are subjected to pull (load) tests.
