No two buildings are alike. You may need a wet system or a dry system, or some combination of the two. The design proccess involves knowing the type of structure, occupancy, and any special hazards involved.

The actual design includes layout and hydraulic calculations to determine pipe sizes for main and branch runs. It can be a tedious process but softare has greatly reduced the time required.

Plans are then submitted to the AHJ and / or engineer for approvals.

At the bottom are two of the Associations that we look to for Codes, Standards and advice on how to best service you and your clients needs.


The the approval and installation process for fire sprinklers is similar in scope to that of other buidling systems, but sprinklers require some specialized tools and equipment to get the job done.

Like any good sprinkler company we carry the equipment neccessary to fabricate jobs in the field. There are cases however when the bulk of the pipe network is pre-fabricated by the materials supplier based on the engineered drawings. This greatly reduces the actual installation time and is the preferred way on new construction and major renovation projects.

Howerever it is done you can expect a professional job every time.
