When you are considering a fire sprinkler system installation, it is extremely important to pick the best fire sprinkler contractors for you and your business. Sprinklers reduce the amount of water used to fight a fire by up to 90% when designed and installed correctly by a fire sprinkler designer. Choosing the right contractor will save you time, money, and energy. Keep reading to find out what you should look for in a fire sprinkler contractor.
All fire sprinkler contractors need to be licensed in fire protection in the state they are operating in and should also be registered with the Electrical Safety Authority. If they are not licensed, they are not going to be the best choice. They also must have general liability insurance, workers compensation insurance, and property damage insurance. If a contractor does not have these licenses and insurances, keep looking for one that does.
Once you choose a fire sprinkler system designer, they will submit the plans for your fire sprinkler system to both the National Fire Protection Association and the Electrical Safety Authority. After they get approval, your contractor will contact the fire department to schedule a final inspection.
