We can install sprinklers in every type of use from executive offices and prison cells to government approved clean rooms. We can install pre-action fire sprinkler system as well in high security IT server rooms and freezer/cooler buildings.
Lindley Fire Protection is an industry leader in microbiological influenced corrosion (MIC) mitigation in fire sprinkler systems. Lindley Fire utilizes the latest technology in the fight to mitigate internal corrosion damage within steel and ductile pipe. MIC has become one of the largest challenges in the fire sprinkler industry and Lindley Fire is expert in the detection, mitigation and restoration of bacteria-damaged piping. MIC is present in all steel piping and all piping should be tested for the presence of this highly damaging bacteria.
Specialized kits allow Lindley Fire technicians to quickly check systems for the presence of MIC and to then add specialized corrosion mitigation agents into the piping to retard active corrosion and to prevent further damage.
Lindley Fire can install nitrogen in sprinkler piping to retard corrosion. This process is known as inerting and is proving to be very effective at slowing the corrosion process.
Auto Air Release Devices
Nitrogen, when used in conjunction with automatic air release devices, is the latest chapter in corrosion mitigation. Lindley Fire installs auto air release devices on all of its systems.
Lindley Fire’s staff of experienced professionals helps your project flow smoothly. A major component to designing the perfect system is figuring out the current water pressure from the street. To do this, we perform a flow test by installing temporary gauges to a portion of the closest hydrants and safely opening them to allow water to flow through the gauges. After acquiring the necessary readings, all while being surveyed by a representative from the local fire authority, we generate reports which help us understand the demand limitations from the city connection.
Fire Pump Testing
Fire pumps can be one of the most intimidating aspects of fire protection for clients. Lindley Fire offers fire pump testing to comply with NFPA, CSFM and local requirements. Fire pumps are required to be tested weekly and Lindley Fire can provide weekly service/testing as well as service at other intervals. All weekly and quarterly testing contracts include the annual fire pump performance test required by NFPA. This test involves flowing water through pitot tubes and establishing performance thresholds for fire department compliance. Diesel fire pumps testing includes maintenance of engines, batteries and fuel tanks.
Our service personnel are continuously trained using seminars conducted by industry experts. We service fire pumps with the latest technology and methods to ensure your system is operating at peak performance. Whether it is weekly, monthly or annual inspections, your pump will be ready when needed.
Lindley Fire performs the following fire sprinkler system inspections:
5-year Title 19 Certifications
Five-year certifications are required by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and local jurisdictions. In addition, the California State Fire Marshal (CSFM) requires Title 19 tests every five years.
Lindley Fire can perform these tests and test all components per the NFPA and CSFM guidelines and provide detailed reports of any findings. These reports are also beneficial to insurance underwriters for improved rates on your fire insurance.
Call Lindley Fire immediately if you are issued a citation for non-compliance. You can also be proactive and schedule a five-year certification early to ensure compliance with the law.
Lindley Fire is pleased to offer quarterly fire sprinkler inspections to meet NFPA and CSFM regulations for maintenance. All fire sprinkler systems are required to be inspected. Some specialized systems require weekly or monthly inspections to meet code. Quarterly inspections ensure that you are meeting the minimum standard for inspection and can help to prevent further damage if problems develop. Lindley Fire will inspect each of your fire sprinkler components as well as your fire alarm system. Quarterly inspections are required by California law and failure to comply with this requirement may affect your insurance coverage.
At Lindley Fire, every project receives the same careful planning and attention to detail in order to provide the best possible protection against specific risks. By reducing these risks, we can also help significantly reduce insurance premiums and, at the same time, enhance the sale/lease potential of your structure.
Annual Fire Sprinkler Inspections
Some clients need annual fire sprinkler inspections for their landlord or insurance underwriter. Lindley Fire is proud to offer annual fire sprinkler system inspections per NFPA guidelines.
