Fire Sprinkler System Services
For buildings and offices all around New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania, a working fire sprinkler system is the single most effective means of stopping fires before they cause damage to your building. At Confires, we do everything we can to keep your fire sprinkler system running smoothly, from design and installation to annual testing and service.
Importance of Fire Sprinklers
According to NFPA statistics, damages to manufacturing facilities, retail stores, offices, health care facilities, and other commercial buildings with a working fire sprinkler system installed are up to 60% lower than damages to buildings with no fire sprinkler system.
However, even the best fire sprinkler systems need to be routinely inspected and tested to ensure that they will always be ready when needed. To ensure your fire sprinkler system will always protect your building and employees during a fire emergency, call Confires Fire Protection to schedule a fire sprinkler system inspection today!
Fire Sprinkler System Inspection
Since fire sprinkler systems need to be available on-demand at all times, they need to be tested annually to ensure they will work properly during a fire emergency. Written records of all fire sprinkler system tests must be maintained in accordance with NFPA 25.
During a fire sprinkler test, physical checks are performed on all the parts of your fire sprinkler system. These checks include water flow tests, fire pump tests, alarm tests, and trip tests of dry pipe, deluge, and pre-action valves.
At Confires, all of our fire sprinkler system testing and inspections are performed by our team of highly trained fire sprinkler system testing professionals. This gives us complete control over the quality of our fire sprinkler system tests and ensures you get the best customer service possible.

Frequently Asked Questions on Commercial Fire Sprinkler Systems
As a fire sprinkler installation contractor for small projects, we’ve answered a lot of questions over the years about how fire sprinklers work to protect commercial buildings.
What will cause my fire sprinklers to activate or go off?
Fire sprinklers are activated when they discern an indoor air temperature over 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Contrary to popular belief, they don’t activate when smoke is present in a room, stairway, or other areas of the building; that’s a job for smoke detectors. Fire sprinklers don’t activate unless and until there are flames in a room or other area of your facility.
Will all fire sprinklers go off at once?
No, to help minimize water damage to an entire property, each fire sprinkler head functions independently. So, if a fire is detected on the second floor or in a storage facility, only those areas’ sprinklers will activate.
How do fire sprinkler systems work?
Fire sprinkler system pipes contain highly pressurized water that, once triggered and released by fire detection, can only be turned off by an emergency responder. Each sprinkler head in the system contains a small plug that holds back the pipes’ pressurized water. How that plug is released to combat a fire depends on the type of fire sprinkler system installed.
Some systems have special solders that melt in high temperatures. Others have a small vial or bulb with colored fluid that expands to break the glass according to the temperature of the fire. For instance, orange bulbs activate at 135 degrees Fahrenheit, green bulbs trigger water release at 200 degrees Fahrenheit, and black bulbs activate at 440 degrees Fahrenheit.
Will my fire sprinkler go off by accident?
Since fire sprinklers are activated by heat, there’s no risk of accidental activation of your sprinkler system by smoke or dust in the air. That said, fire sprinkler systems are highly sensitive, and any tampering can cause them to go off by accident.
For example, if a sprinkler head is accidentally knocked off by a repair technician, truck, or forklift, there’s going to be a lot of water flowing through the broken sprinkler head until the system is shut down and the sprinkler head repaired.
