When it Comes to Fire Safety, Equipment Failure is Not An Option
Our team at Fire Chief has always had one focus in mind: Your safety – and the safety of those who trust you to keep them and their assets protected 24/7.
In addition to the fire safety products that we offer today, and all of the services that we provide for the proper equipment, installation, operation, and warranty service, Fire Chief also offers professional assistance in the maintenance and restoration of fire sprinkler systems.
As leaders in the field of fire safety equipment in the Seattle / Spokane area, we encourage all of our clients who have purchased and/or had us install a sprinkler system to realize the importance of maintaining the equipment’s durability and integrity in years to come.
Simply said: installing a sprinkler system alone does not remove the threat of a major fire.
WHY MAINTAIN A FIRE SPRINKER SYSTEM?
There are many reasons why our clients chose Fire Chief to monitor and maintain their Sprinkler System yet there are two that rise to the top of the list: corrosion and cost.
Corrosion: The Impacts of Failed Fire Sprinkler Systems
Be it Generalized Corrosion (Rust) or Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC) – either issue can cause a sprinkler system to completely fail.
The effect of these issues (be it minor or major) could include yet not be limited to:
- Personal injury or death
- Loss of property
- Loss of production
- Temporary shutdowns (that are often unplanned
- Increased maintenance bills
- Exterior rusting and condensation
- Pinhole leaks
- Rotten Egg Smell
Costs: The Expense to Replace A Fire Sprinkler System
It is a far smarter investment today to monitor one’s fire sprinkler system than to incur the thousands of dollars to replace a system – to say nothing about the damage that a failing system could cause.
Sample cost analysis: Provided by the American Fire Sprinkler Association
- New construction $1-$2 / ft2
- Retrofits $2-$3 / ft2
- 100K ft2 (9300m3) = $100K-$200K new construction
- 50K ft2 (4650m3) = $100K-$150K retrofits
- Pinholes $800 – $1200 to as high as $5000
