AMERICAN FIRE SPRINKLER ASSOCIATION
Life Safety Fire Protection provides practical solutions for designing and building new construction projects, replacing older systems, or upgrading existing systems from smoke detector and fire alarm installation to broad life safety networks. Fire System Design & Installation made simple from start to finish, our dedicated team of installers, project managers, and technicians handle all aspects of your fire system installation.
- Field Surveys and Budgetary Estimates
- CAD Design and Hydraulic Calculations
- Turn-Key Installation and Project Management
- Turnover Testing and System Certification
Prior to job startup a “Turnover Meeting” is held with the Project Manager, Designer and Lead Foreman to review the system layout, coordination of trades, time allocation and critical goal points. Our Project Manager makes frequent visits to job sites and is in daily contact with project Foremen. Experience has proven that open and honest communication along with frequent site visits will flush out potential issues before they become conflicts and provides the opportunity to measure both the quality and progress of our installations.
Every fire sprinkler system is unique and has a specific hydraulic demand based on a building’s occupancy.
Our estimators will determine the volume of water required for your system. Is a public supply available or adequate, or will a fire pump and storage tank need to be installed? In new construction, our estimators consult with our clients and review their architectural drawings to determine the most efficient approach to an installation. Aesthetic considerations, areas subject to freezing, constraints with respect to framing or potential conflicts with other trades are just some of the items to be considered when developing a comprehensive project proposal.
We determine the most effective combination of fire safety equipment for the building, room, or hazard area.
Our designers synthesize the estimator’s proposal into a workable plan to meet your requirements and the applicable National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) design standard while also determining the most efficient approach to the installation. A design must be concise, allow for the creation of a detailed fabrication and material list and provide the installing fitter with a clear roadmap for the performance of their task. Life Safety Fire Protection accomplishes this by utilizing the most current design software, preconstruction and ongoing site visits and through the continuing education of our highly qualified system designers.
Our certified engineers then coordinate with the local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) to create a layout that meets all pertinent codes.
For our customers’ convenience, we take care of applying for any permits and licenses. Our relationships with municipalities helps to avoid delays in permit acquisition and ensures efficient response when needed.
We maintain consistent communication with all essential parties during an installation. This includes weekly status reports to ensure timely completion and minimal disruption to your operations.
Our qualified pipe fitters have much to consider in the process of installing a system, not the least of which is safety both individually and for others on the job site. Our pipe fitters are the backbone of the company. They must communicate and work well with site supervisors and the other trades people in order to coordinate an efficient installation. Quality and efficiency go hand in hand to assure that final pressure testing and inspections have positive results.
Upon project completion, we bundle and provide as-built drawings, component diagrams, and pertinent documents with a proposal for future inspection and testing of your system. As with any mechanical system, a fire sprinkler system must be properly maintained to assure its continued reliable operation.
The team at Life Safety Fire Protection has one mission: protecting lives and property. Protecting your home, your family, your business, and all you hold dear. We do this by providing a host of fire protection services for both commercial and residential customers. From system design and installation, to testing and maintenance.
