Effective Fire Sprinkler Design
Residential fire sprinklers are required in New York State for a 1-1/2 or 2 story-home with the first floor more than six feet above grade. GreenTauk has designed dozens of residential fire sprinkler systems. These systems must be designed in accordance with NFPA 13D, which is the standard for fire sprinkler installations in one and two-family houses per the National Fire Protection Association. (This requirement corresponds to the New York State Building Code.) GreenTauk conducts pre-drywall inspections of the fire sprinkler systems and is responsible for final sign-off on many of these projects.
