Warehouse Fire Safety & Sprinkler Systems
Specialized fire protection systems for warehouses and distribution centers.
There are one-of-a-kind challenges involved in designing fire protection systems for warehouses, distribution centers, freezers/coolers and other modern storage facilities. Our Rack Division has assembled a team of problem solvers that specializes in fire sprinkler system installation in this uniquely challenging area.
For example, tall one-level structures with intricate racking systems require very specific expertise in planning and a greater level of detail in design and installation of sprinklers.
Our staff’s experience, skill, vision and attention to detail allow them to meet these challenges head-on. We follow a specific process in creating systems for these specialized buildings:
- In the consultation stage, Summit works with the client to do walk-throughs, site visits, and pre-design meetings to garner all information needed.
- In the design phase, Summit develops detailed design drawings, obtains water flow info, provides hydraulic calculations, procures approvals (owner, city, state, insurance and more) and prepares job prints and stock lists.
- In the construction phase, we have dedicated project managers who specialize in rack construction fire protection. They are supported by field personnel who are well versed in installation of rack systems.
Our process, combined with the deep experience of our team, helps us develop turnkey protection systems that keep construction on schedule and deliver a proven solution clients know they can count on from day one.
