What Are The Fire Sprinkler System Code Requirements For Commercial Buildings?

As a property manager, you are responsible for ensuring that your commercial building is up to code with the proper fire sprinkler system. At Aura Fire Safety, our team of technicians understands the regulations San Francisco requires for a commercial fire sprinkler system installation.

Fire safety is a top priority in commercial buildings to avoid serious injuries or deaths. Uncontrolled fires can also damage the property and the merchandise it stores. It can create a significant and unexpected expense for companies.

At Aura Fire Safety, we work closely with property managers to ensure their commercial buildings are updated with the current fire sprinkler system code requirements.

Commercial Buildings Codes: Fire Sprinkler System -Requirements

The national standard NFPA 13 serves as the standard for installing sprinkler systems in commercial buildings. The codes provide the basic requirements for the design and installation of automatic fire sprinkler systems and exposure protection sprinkler systems.

Aura Fire Safety helps each client carefully plan and design a fire sprinkler system that meets the local fire safety codes along with local, state, and federal regulations. The San Francisco commercial fire sprinkler code requirements include:

  • Fire sprinkler systems must be set up for maximum coverage throughout the entire building.
  • Automatic sprinklers must be installed in all commercial buildings with a fire area above 5,000 square feet.
  • Automatic sprinklers must be installed in commercial buildings that have a height above 55 feet.
  • Sprinkler system must be tested for adequate pressure, which may call for installing fire pumps housed in separate buildings or a fire-rated room with an exterior entrance if attached to the same building.
  • Water valves that control supply must be clearly marked and must remain accessible.
