Rough-In Inspections and Final Acceptance Testing for AHJ’s

January 10th, 2017

Among the many milestones found in the process of sprinkler system design and installation, the rough-in inspection is arguably the most important.  Rarely are sprinkler systems inspected and tested by the same personnel that perform the shop drawing review.  As a team, installers and fire service inspectors are our last chance to “get it right” regardless of design intent and plan review accuracy.  This seminar will explain the synergy required in the design and installation process exposing the critical areas of each needed to ensure that lives and property will be saved.  Detailed discussion regarding the activities included in this inspection and the importance they play will be presented.

 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Quickly identify construction types by definition(s) for each compartment and validate the approved shop drawings.
  2. Be able to recognize and apply the proper obstruction types and associated rules based on the construction definitions.
  3. Be able to compare those critical portions of the actual installation with the approved shop drawings.
