Suppression System Bi-Annual Inspections

Don't Let Safety Fall Through the Cracks 

Alltron Systems' Inspections Keep Your Suppression Systems in Top Shape

Regular semi-annual inspections are critical for the reliable operation of fire suppression systems. These inspections help identify and address potential issues before they compromise the system's ability to effectively suppress a fire, thereby protecting both lives and property.


A semi-annual fire suppression inspection involves a detailed examination of a fire suppression system to ensure its proper functionality and readiness in case of a fire. These systems, which can vary widely in type (e.g., wet chemical, clean agent, CO2, foam, water mist), are designed to quickly suppress fires and minimize damage. The standards for these inspections are typically outlined by organizations like the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). The specific NFPA standard depends on the type of suppression system being inspected. For example, NFPA 17 covers dry chemical extinguishing systems, NFPA 17A covers wet chemical extinguishing systems, and NFPA 2001 covers clean agent fire extinguishing systems.

Here’s what a semi-annual fire suppression inspection generally entails:
