Automatic Sprinkler Inspection, Testing & Maintenance

Introduction

Another situation...

A small fire in a manufacturing building resulted in the operation of three automatic sprinkler heads. The fire was controlled and nearly extinguished by the sprinklers, but there was an inordinate amount of water in the facility. The reason was obvious. During installation of a new ventilation system, new ductwork obstructed the discharge from two sprinklers closest to the fire. The new ductwork deflected the spray away from the fire. A third sprinkler that fused was not obstructed and controlled the fire.

A routine inspection of the sprinkler system would have detected the obstructions created by the new ducts.
