We need a complete set of drawings of the building including at least architectural, structural, lighting and reflective ceiling plan. The more complete the drawings the more accurate our estimates can be. AutoCAD files and Water Supply information at the site are not required but can help expedite the estimate.
We offer contracts for annual inspection of fire extinguishers coupled with annual inspections of fire sprinkler systems. We are certified and handle inspections of the Fire sprinkler systems. In addition we will work with a licensed specialist to see that portable fire extinguishers are properly serviced along with kitchen hood systems in a seamless manner. We will pick-up extinguishers during our Fire Sprinkler System Inspection, leave temporary extinguishers, transport extinguishers for service and return them when completed. You will receive only one invoice.
