All fire alarm systems, sprinklers systems and suppression systems are required to be tested and re-certified on an annual basis, or more frequently as required, pursuant to the National Fire Protection Association [NFPA] and local fire codes and standards.
Keystone Provides Essential and Custom Fire System Testing Services
After Hours Testing of Audible Alarms
Alarms should be annoying when you need them to be, not when you don’t. We can test your audible devices “off hours” to minimize disruption and inconvenience.
Anti-Freeze Solution Testing
Don’t risk frozen pipes. Let us test them annually testing with a hydrometer to protect against freezing and to replenish the anti-freeze as necessary.
Decibel (dB) Testing of Audible Alarms
Alarms need to be heard to keep people safe. Our technicians record the audibility level of notification systems during annual testing and certification.
Hydrostatic Testing of Cylinders, Standpipes, and Hose Connections
Hydrostatic testing of pressurized cylinders is required by the U.S. Department of Transportation on strict schedules. Let us remove the pressure of pressure testing your cylinders.
Monthly Extinguisher Inspections
Let Keystone conduct monthly “quick checks” so your extinguishers stay properly placed and operable as required by the NFPA.
Smoke Detector Sensitivity Testing
You can’t be too sensitive when it comes to life safety. Test your detectors as required every other year so they operate within their listed and marked sensitivity range.
Room Integrity Fan Testing
Don’t blow off “hold time” testing. It’s recommended annually and measures a room’s ability to maintain adequate extinguishing concentration after system discharge.
Sprinkler Pipe Obstruction Investigation
Corrosion and clogs can be fatal. Ensure piping, branch lines, and mains remain clear of obstructions at 5-year intervals. Flushing is conducted as necessary.
Customized Testing Services
Beyond our extensive inspection service offerings, Keystone also offers specialized testing that your particular facility and its equipment may require.
