Include Fire Sprinklers When You Build Your New Home
- Ask your builder or architect if they have experience working with fire sprinklers and if they know a sprinkler contractor.
- If they don’t, talk to your local fire department for recommendations.
- You can also do a web search or look in the Yellow pages.
- Ask the sprinkler contractor if they have experience with NFPA 13D systems (the standard for home fire sprinklers).
- Fire sprinklers are definitely not a Do-It-Yourself project. They have to be carefully engineered and installed correctly.
- If your builder does not want to build with sprinklers, contact other builders in your area who will work with you.
- Your sprinkler contractor will work with you to decide what type of sprinklers are best for your home. You can choose the traditional pendent style or concealed sprinklers.
- If freezing is a problem in your area, you might use sidewall sprinklers to avoid running piping in your attic.
- Sprinklers are installed as part of the construction process, usually right after plumbing and electrical.
If you are doing a home renovation you can add sprinklers as part of the project. Retrofitting Fire Sprinklers.
