Keep pipes warm to maintain sprinkler systems
Nashville, TN – As the weather again rushes to or below zero, the State Fire Marshal wishes to remind building owners that it is important to take steps to prevent freeze-ups of water-based fire protection systems, such as automatic fire sprinkler systems.
“While designers and installers of sprinkler systems take into account the variety of seasonal temperatures during installation, normal precautions should be taken to keep both the building and the fire sprinkler system warm,” said Commissioner and State Fire Marshal Julie Mix McPeak. “Like with all water-containing pipes, freezing temperatures can cause pipes to break or leak, resulting in problems during operation in the event of a fire. As we have seen, freezing temperatures outside also make it more difficult to utilize external sources for fire suppression, increasing the importance of the building’s internal systems.” «Read the rest of this article»
