Having a well-maintained sprinkler system is essential. Every fire protection measure you take is well worth the investment. If your existing sprinklers require some attention, then you are in luck. That is because ARK Systems is proud to offer sprinkler maintenance and testing services. We comply with all relevant National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) guidelines and National Institute for Engineering Technologies (NICET) certification requirements. Our NICET-certified installers, testers, and engineers are at your service!
Sometimes, the scope of your repairs calls for a complete replacement. This overhaul may seem unnecessary at first. However, suppose the expert technician recommends that we send to your premises. In that case, it is something to consider before system failures lead to catastrophic downtime. We can also do smaller-scale installations and take care of your overall design, maintenance, installation, and service needs.
Fires can happen any time, and not just during regular business hours. Thus, we provide 24/7 service whenever you need it, and we will prioritize you if there is an emergency. Even so, our preventative maintenance services happen at your convenience; please note that it ultimately depends on NFPA guidelines:

In general, sprinkler systems will continue to work until they begin to leak. At this point, they are on the verge of failure. Malfunctioning sprinklers can cause indoor rainfall that can, in turn, ruin your assets and make your employees uncomfortable. Therefore, we strive to perform all of the NFPA-required tests and inspections mandated by local inspection authorities, fire marshals, and insurance companies. Per insurance company protocols, we will also achieve the NFPA-required certifications so that our clients will not have to worry about that and instead focus on serving their customers.
You may also be curious about the types of sprinkler systems that we work on; the ARK Systems team can address any issues that affect wet sprinkler systems, dry sprinkler systems, and antifreeze-based sprinkler systems. Our licensing and insurance credentials cover states all over the region: Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, the District of Columbia, Delaware, and Pennsylvania.
Utilizing state of the art Barcoding procedures, ARK Systems maintains a complete inventory of all devices by type, manufacturer, and device location. This solution ensures all devices are thoroughly documented, tested, and any deficiencies are noted in the certification report.
Some of the partners we work with, and products we offer, include Viking, Tyco, Reliable, Peerless, and Aurora.
Fighting fires is your first line of defense until the fire department can arrive to finish the job. The NFPA has compiled several statistical studies that indicate fire damages affecting commercial and industrial properties were 60% lower than similar buildings lacking high-quality and reliable fire suppression systems. Physical inspections and flow tests are vital for ensuring that your systems are in working order and that nothing is wrong. Please get in touch with us today!
