“Making sure our customers get the best system at the best price. I know, everyone says that, but we really practice it. A recent example is a multi-family project in which the original plans from the architects called for open stairwells, which required the installation of an expensive freeze-resistant dry sprinkler system. However, in the final set of plans the stairwells were enclosed, so we amended our plans, and specified the far less expensive wet automatic sprinkler system. We made sure the property owner got the price reduction.”

Retrofit and Restore Older Fire Protection Systems

Updating out-of-date systems ensures well protected properties
Retrofitting fire sprinkler systems in older or historic buildings is often a creative process that requires a lot of design flexibility. It’s challenging to maintain the owner’s budget, the architect’s vision, while adhering to fire safety compliance rules.
The seasoned experts at Cherokey Fire Protection work closely with architects and owners to make it possible to implement a mixture of passive and active systems such as heat detectors and smoke and fire curtains that can help protect pre-existing buildings.
