Fire Sprinkler Helpful Tips:
Tip 1: When replacing coverplates it is important to purchase replacements from the same manufacturer as the fire sprinkler. Each manufacturer's plate is a little different in size, color, etc. Manufacturer and temperature of a coverplate is printed on the base of the plate requiring removal to inspect. Most cover plates are either twist off or pull off.
Tip 2: It is recommended that a qualified professional replace fire sprinklers or in any other way modify a fire sprinkler system.
Tip 3: Spare fire sprinkler heads and a wrench should be accessible at all times in a facility with a commercial fire sprinkler system installed. Often state regulations apply, too. Check with your local fire department.
Tip 4: Fire sprinkler systems should be visually inspected often and professionally inspected annually.
