NFPA 15
Standard for Water Spray Fixed Systems for Fire Protection

Many local governments have adopted NFPA standards and codes. Safety, building and fire code enforcement inspectors in Houston may make reference to which standards and codes are violated if your installed fire sprinkler system is malfunctioning, inoperable or failing tests.

If you receive a violation from safety, building and/or fire code enforcement officers contact an actively licensed fire sprinkler company in Houston to immediately correct, repair, replace and remedy the violations received. You may receive a certificate to certify that your fire sprinkler system is fully operational and in a state of readiness upon completion of any services performed.

About the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)

A group of insurance firms originally created the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) in the late 1800's for the purpose of creating building standards in the emerging fire sprinkler industry.

The goal in creating these standards and codes was to aid fire sprinkler installers with specific guidelines created from the study of fire departments, fire sprinkler companies and manufacturers. These standards and codes have been adopted by many local governments and around the World for the installation, maintenance and service of installed fire sprinkler systems.
