Windowless Basement Fire Alarm Installation

If your New Jersey home or business has a basement, the Windowless Basement Law may apply to you. Depending on the size of your basement, your requirements may be different.

Basements Under 3,000 Square Feet

“Windowless basements not exceeding 3,000 square feet in area shall be exempt from this automatic suppression requirement, provided a supervised automatic fire alarm system shall be installed in accordance with the New Jersey Uniform Construction Code.”

Basements 3,001–10,000 Square Feet

“In windowless basements greater than 3,000 square feet, but not exceeding 10,000 square feet in area, the required suppression system need not be connected to a water supply other than an existing domestic supply if the following conditions are met:

  • The suppression system shall be provided with a fire department connection, which shall be marked with a sign reading ‘Basement Area Sprinkler Water Supply;’ and
  • A supervised automatic fire alarm system shall be installed in accordance with the New Jersey Uniform Construction Code.”

Windowless Basement Law in New Jersey

According to the Windowless Basement Law, the window openings in your commercial basement are required to be one of the following:

  • 32 inches by 48 inches and spaced no more than 100 feet apart
  • 22 inches by 42 inches and spaced no more than 30 feet apart

The goal of the Windowless Basement Law is to protect the occupants of the building, as well as firefighters, by providing early fire detection, early fire suppression, and the sounding of a fire alarm.
