Fire Suppression Inspection & Testing
Looking for fire inspection companies “near me”? If you’re located in the Chicagoland area, including southern Wisconsin or northwest Indiana, Fire Science Techniques is here for you! Each year, we inspect thousands of pre-engineered fire suppression systems located in restaurants, schools, hospitals, paint booths, auto body shops, server rooms, and more.
Commercial kitchen fire suppression systems must be inspected and tested annually. Visual inspections check the status of the system and assess if any changes are needed to the equipment layout. Then, testing ensures the system is operationally effective. If any defects are found, maintenance and repairs are performed as necessary.
In addition to yearly services, pressurized fire suppression cylinders must also be hydrostatically tested, usually every six years. Tank recharging and power source replacement also take place occasionally.
To keep on top of these tasks, which are required by law, you may choose to sign up for a maintenance contract with Fire Science Techniques. This eliminates the stress and hassle of fire suppression inspections and ensures you never miss a crucial testing deadline.
Our fire protection inspection contracts are the best way to ensure your business is covered. Contact us today to learn more.
Emergency & Exit Lighting Inspection & Testing
The illuminated exit signs and emergency lights in your building are a critical part of your safety and evacuation plan. Are you confident your lights will work properly if an emergency strikes? If not, it’s time to schedule an inspection.
Fire safety codes require backup lighting inspections at least once a year. These services include a visual check as well as a 90-minute test of your emergency lights under real-world emergency conditions. Expect your technicians to measure the voltage and battery output, check for corrosion, clean the lens, and adjust and tighten the beam for optimal placement.
Fire Science Techniques has years of experience performing these tests and will ensure your building’s backup lighting system remains code-compliant. If you wish, we can include emergency lighting inspections in your maintenance contract to simplify your compliance efforts.
Fire Extinguisher Inspection & Testing
Regular fire extinguisher inspections aren’t just necessary to ensure proper operation in an emergency—they are also required by law. Fire Science Techniques can perform annual fire extinguisher inspections at your Chicagoland business. This includes a visual inspection to ensure all hoses, seals, gauges, and cylinders are in good condition.
Then, we can also perform hydrostatic testing and other six-year maintenance to assess the structural integrity of your fire extinguishers. These services keep your equipment in top condition and ensure unequivocal code compliance.
