Your building requires a fire protection system for life safety and code compliance. Installing the proper equipment is an important first step, but it doesn’t end there. To ensure your system continues to operate as intended, you must schedule fire protection inspections according to the rules established by the National Fire Protection Association. Without this vital maintenance, your fire protection system could fall into disrepair.

Fire Extinguisher Inspections
It’s necessary to visually inspect your fire extinguishers once a month. You can assign any employee this task with no formal training needed. Then, professional fire extinguisher inspections are required once a year. A fire protection expert visits your business location to verify proper extinguisher placement, assess any physical damage, ensure adequate charge, and check the labeling.
More in-depth fire extinguisher maintenance is required at six- and 12-year intervals. This involves emptying the cylinders, changing out expired parts, checking the structural integrity with a hydrostatic test, recharging the extinguishers, and putting them back into service with renewed confidence in their reliability. United Fire Protection can handle all of these fire extinguisher inspections for your Central Florida business.
Fire Suppression Inspections
If you operate a business that uses a fire suppression system, you must keep up with routine maintenance to ensure the equipment will function properly if an unexpected blaze breaks out. To stay current with state and national fire codes, you should have your fire suppression system inspected semi-annually by a technician licensed in the state of Florida. The inspection includes tasks such as confirming cylinder pressures, verifying shutdown and evacuation circuits, and checking pipes and nozzles for blockages.
Then, you may need to have more in-depth hydrostatic testing performed on your fire suppression cylinders every six to 12 years, depending on the type of equipment you have. United Fire Protection operates a hydro-testing facility in Orlando where we can meet this requirement.
Emergency Lighting Inspections
If the power goes out during a fire emergency, everyone in your building could struggle with finding the exit. Of course, if you have fully functional emergency lighting, you avoid this frightening scenario and give your employees and customers the best chance of evacuating calmly and safely.
To keep your backup lights in good operating condition, you are required to test them for 30 seconds once every 30 days. An extended 90-minute test must also be performed by a licensed professional once a year. United Fire Protection has years of experience meeting these testing requirements, so you can trust us to keep your building code-compliant.
