Fire Sprinkler Installation
In order to ensure the life safety of a facility’s occupants, and to protect an individual or a business’s property, the installation of fire protection systems is mandated by the Ontario Building Code. Provincial and Municipal Governments use this document to establish the requirements for the installation of fire sprinkler, standpipe and hose, and fire pump systems in buildings across the province. Through legal reference in the Ontario Building Code, other standards and codes become legally enforceable. The standards and codes that are referenced for sprinkler systems are National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) codes and standards.
The installation of an automatic fire protection system in a new construction project can be a complicated and involved process. From fluid mechanics and hydraulic calculations, to the engineering and design of sprinkler risers, standpipes, fire pumps, generators and all the other various components that make up an integrated fire protection system, having a single point of contact to arrange, co-ordinate and ensure the verified completion of all these systems is vital to your building process.
The codes and standards that apply to fire protection systems are:
- NFPA 10 Standard for Portable Fire Extinguishers.
- NFPA. 13 Standards for the installation of Sprinkler Systems.
- NFPA 14 Standards for the installation of Standpipe and Hose Systems.
- NFPA 20 Standards for the installation of Stationary Pumps for Fire Protection.
- NFPA 25 Standard for the Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems.

When performing renovations to a property, the fire protection system is often overlooked. The simple relocation of a wall or the construction of a closet may put your existing system out of compliance with NFPA codes. Any time the layout of a building is changed, a trained technician should check whether or not the fire protection system requires any alteration. Lumar Fire Protection Inc. technicians are available to perform any required modifications or upgrades at a time that is convenient for you.
If you are unsure if your renovation has caused changes to your fire protection system, contact our office and we will be happy to send an inspector to check and ensure your building is up to the required codes and standards.
