Distribution Facility Fire Protection System
Fire Protection System Design for 1.2M SF Distribution Facility
Design and Fire Protection Review Services for a 16-mile Conveyor System
The client wanted a fire sprinkler system design that would not limit the facility for the conveyor system and slides that would not require sprinklers under the conveyors as required by NFPA 13 for obstructions wider than 48 inches. We came up with a design to increase the sprinkler system density and increase the system remote areas. They used a .3 density over 3000 s.f. design instead of .2/2000 s.f. This building has 39 separate sprinkler system risers as well as a 1500 gpm fire pump. The sprinkler systems and conveyors were installed, inspected, and tested all within the timeframe allowance for the project as they opened the facility on time within their time line one month before Christmas 2018. Initial fire plan review was in January 2018 with fire inspections done in phases as the sprinkler systems were installed. Final inspection for phase 1 was completed in April 2018.
