The Importance of the Fireline Design in the Fireline Installation Process
Focusing on Fireline design will save you money, time, and headaches in the long run. All in all, Fireline piping is one of the most critical elements that firefighters and construction companies use to protect the public. The lines, often placed underground, away from sight, make up the first defense against a fire. Many times, the pipes connect directly to sprinkler systems, fire hydrants, and more. Most importantly, these non-potable water systems help to combat fires. For one thing, they get fires under control and managed before they take out large sections of a building.Read more “The Importance of the Fireline Design”
An overview of Fire Protection Systems Underground Piping Process
Fire Protection Systems and Underground Piping for fire hydrants and fire sprinklers supply lines, need to comply with several requirements. Fire protection systems generally function with different parts into play. They have to be well thought out and strong, taking into account all the necessary factors.
Underground areas present great access-difficulties and unknowns. After all, the underground piping options should provide the utmost resistance and durability to avoid future repairs.
The design for the piping should consider, weather patterns, type of terrain, and any adjacent structures that might be affected.
Fire protection systems are put in place to assure the safety of the people in the building. Also, they strive to minimize the losses a business or an organization can suffer after a devastating fire. Therefore Fire Protection companies like Sprinkler and Excavating work together to get you the best design!
Fire Protection Systems, Pivotal to Minimize Losses
Did you know? The Whole Building Design Guide by the National Institute of Building Science says that “The United States has the highest fire losses in terms of both frequency and total losses of any modern technological society. New facilities and renovation projects need to be designed to incorporate efficient, cost-effective passive and automatic fire protection systems…”
Such systems will prevent people and property losses. Thus all commercial and residential buildings should have a fire protection system in place to assure safety. The best fire sprinkler and fire protection companies ensure a well-designed custom system. Such operation will cater to the terrain and the needs of the structure.
Today we’d like to introduce you to Lisa and Doug Hughes.
Lisa and Doug, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today. We are very proud to be owners of the premier Underground Fire Protection company in the Dallas Metroplex. We started in the trenches as teenagers, and now, with over 60 years of combined experience, at Hughes Excavating we know as much about the Underground Fire Protection industry as anyone in the state of Texas.
We are wholeheartedly committed to protecting lives and property by our service of installing underground fire mains, vaults with backflow preventers, and fire hydrants. In the event of an underground fireline emergency, we are the first responders.
Underground Fireline Repair and Service Components
Understanding Underground Fireline Repair and Service Components. Firstly, the fire line is a non-drinking water system typically designed for commercial, industrial, institutional and residential commercial projects with the demand for fire protection. A system of underground fire lines is different from a drinking water system; water does not circulate. Basically, underground firelines only activate when necessary to combat a fire correspondingly. By comparison, the various components that make up an underground fire system are similar to each other.Read more “Underground Fireline Repair and Service Components”
