STANDPIPE SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS NYC (Part 2 of 2)
When fire fighters arrive to combat a fire, they need to know that, and it is in the best interests of the property owner to insure that, the standpipe system is in good working condition. NYC Fire fighters, whether in Manhattan, Queens, Bronx, Brooklyn or Staten Island rely on the fact that they can quickly hook up their hoses and get on with the task of fighting a fire.
From the street level, up to where the fire is raging, fire fighters in some instances might not be able to combat the fire except from outside. If they can’t enter a building to fight the fire, they are limited to spaying water only from the outside.
How is the standpipe inspected, tested and maintained?
Every component of the system must undergo, inspection or testing as per mandated protocol as with any other commercial fire sprinkler system. In accordance with NFPA parts of the system must undergo annual maintenance and inspection, so as to insure that the components are in good working order. This requires expertise and a demonstrated track record – so you, the NYC business owner or property manager knows that a company like master fire performs the inspection, testing and maintenance required to insure that the standpipe system works as it was intended.
The New York City Building Code requires standpipes in commercial buildings for the above reasons. Which means you the property owner has to make sure your standpipe system is code complaint.
