Ensuring Effective Sprinkler Installations: Installing Automatic Sprinkler Systems to FM Global Standards will help you to ensure that sprinkler systems and their water supplies are properly arranged and installed, so that they will operate effectively when needed.

The seminar is intended to help you arrange sprinkler installations in such a way as to avoid common pitfalls such as obstructed heads and inadequate testing arrangements.

The seminar includes interactive workshops, discussions and presentations.

FM Global is committed to working with our clients to maintain business continuity. Installing well designed sprinkler systems is a vital step in minimising the size of a fire likely to be suffered. An uncontrolled fire is likely to result in significant interruption to the business, whereas a controlled fire supports prompt resumption of operations.

  • What’s involved in effective acceptance testing of new fire protection systems.
