Fire Sprinkler Inspections, Installations & Repairs Throughout Michigan
Fire sprinkler systems are your business’s first line of defense against a fire. Though they may not stop all the damage, according to the National Fire Protection Association, buildings with a sprinkler system often suffer 60% less damage than buildings that lack them. Considering the devastation that can occur in a fire, that can be a significant amount of savings during the rebuilding process.
A sprinkler system is of little value, however, if it’s not working correctly. At Fire Pros, we can make sure your fire sprinkler system is installed properly, well-maintained, and ready when your business needs it.

Fire Sprinkler FAQs
Are fire sprinkler systems effective as a form of fire protection?
Yes. Fire sprinkler systems are an effective form of fire protection and are actually the most widely used fire protection system today due to the benefits of reduced damage and saved lives.
How do fire sprinklers work?
The pipes for fire sprinkler systems contain highly pressurized water. Once the mechanism in the fire sprinkler head has been triggered, the water will only be able to be turned off by an emergency responder.
Each sprinkler head has a little plug to hold back the pressurized water in the pipes. However, when the temperature rises above 165 degrees Fahrenheit, the plug is released. How the plug is released depends on the type of fire sprinkler system installed.
Some systems have a special solder for the sprinkler head that melts in high temperatures. Other systems may have a glass vial that contains fluid that will expand to break the glass in high temperatures.
How often should my fire sprinkler system be inspected?
The NFPA recommends that your fire sprinkler system be tested and inspected by professional fire protection technicians at least four times per year.
