A good design is the foundation of every high-quality fire sprinkler system. You can count on Koetter Fire Protection's exceptional design strength to give you a well-conceived system and to smooth the overall process. As needed, we coordinate our efforts with your architect/engineering firm, as well as your general, electrical, and/or mechanical contractor.
Our knowledgeable design teams are experts at coordinating the installation with other trades on the project to ensure smooth performance and on-time completion.
Experienced specialists carefully define every detail of your system. For existing structures, this begins with a careful site survey to generate up-to-date, accurate measurements. Using the latest CAD and hydraulics software, we ensure that the overall fire sprinkler design responds to the specific risks and physical layout of your premises.
For fast turnaround on large-scale or multi-site projects, our district offices have ready access to the supplemental design resources of Koetter Fire Protection's Central Design Group, based in Dallas, Texas. If needed, our staff professionals can be deployed to your location for on-site design.
Unlike some suppliers, our capabilities are not limited to particular brands or types of equipment. Koetter Fire Protection provides system design and installation of fire sprinkler and suppression equipment from all major manufacturers.
We understand the importance of controlling costs and keeping disruptions to an absolute minimum. Often, remodeling projects trigger a requirement to upgrade your system to comply with newer codes. Our retrofitted sprinkler systems enhance life-safety protection at your facilities. They also provide the means to contain fire damage that might otherwise halt operations.
The reduced liability and property damage risks are often reflected in lower insurance premiums. A new system can frequently pay for itself in as little as three to five years. As you might imagine, it takes careful planning and skill to carry out a retrofit while daily operations continue at your facility. We have demonstrated experience in working within these demanding constraints.
We get the job done while maintaining a comfortable environment for your people and allowing you to conduct business as usual. We routinely perform the work during off-hours, nightshifts and weekends, molding our schedule around yours. We often proceed room-by-room with small crews, essentially invisible to patients in hospitals or guests in hotels.
At our customer's option, we provide cost-effective turnkey services that include ceiling removal and replacement, painting and other restoration work. This eliminates the headaches of scheduling multiple vendors and simplifies the paperwork and coordination hassles. Of course, from design through final commissioning, we interface with the local authorities having jurisdiction to ensure smooth acceptance of your new system.
You can count on Koetter Fire Protection to implement enterprise-wide equipment standards, design controls and installation practices for your fire sprinkler and suppression systems. We routinely work with corporate facility managers to ensure that each operation complies not only with corporate standards, insurance requirements and national regulations, but also with local codes.
Once your system is installed, we'll keep it operating at peak efficiency. We field the largest team of professionally trained, NICET-certified technicians in our industry.
Superior field service is a fundamental strength of Koetter Fire Protection, and has made us the preferred service provider for thousands of customers. We offer the full range of scheduled fire sprinkler inspection and maintenance services, as well as 24-hour/365-day emergency service and central station monitoring.
Our service capability extends to all major brands, including systems originally installed by other firms. It also covers fire pumps, backflow devices, special hazards systems, and detection and alarm systems.
