Testing and certification solutions for fire sprinkler pipes and fittings
Ensuring that the fire sprinkler system is functioning properly is a critical responsibility of any building owner.
To meet this responsibility, it’s important that the pipes and fittings of the sprinkler system are tested and certified as well. Fire sprinkler fittings and pipe testing helps ensure the operation and performance of your entire fire system.
This testing and certification service specifically evaluates the critical components in a water-based fire sprinkler system, such as the pipe, fittings and pipe hanger equipment for suitability and durability.
The proper testing and certification of fire sprinkler systems helps to save lives and protect the building from fire damage.
Testing scope for pipe and fitting performance
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.
