Fire Sprinkler Installation: What’s leaving and what’s coming
Two things to know about Fire Sprinkler installation:
- The period is almost over allowing plumbers to install fire sprinklers. AB 433 from 2013 allowed C-36 plumbers to install fire sprinklers in one- or 2-family dwellings until December 31, 2016. As of Jan 1, 2017, only C-16 Fire Protection Contractors can install fire sprinklers, period.
- Certification requirements for Automatic Fire Extinguishing Systems is still on the way. The State Fire Marshal will have another 15 Day public comment period in January. C-16s and GCs who use C-16s should take a look at the almost-finished-product at http://tinyurl.com/jmjshcz
