Fire Sprinkler and Piping Seismic Restraints

Fire Sprinkler and Piping Seismic Restraint Installers

During an earthquake, burst sprinkler pipes can flood your building and cause huge water damage. The shear weight and density of these pipes would also be incredibly dangerous if they were to fall on someone below.

Your sprinkler systems should be seismically restrained at the connection points, connections to equipment, and where free swaying of the pipe may damage other building damage elements.

Next steps

  • You can check your fire sprinklers and piping are seismically restrained by carefully removing a tile and looking up. 
  • Once there, make sure there is a flexible wire securing the elements to overhead structures. They should not be attached to the suspended ceiling.
  • If you do not see seismic restraints or are concerned the restraints are not fitted properly, contact an expert to assess your earthquake risk, recommend solutions according to best practice, and in compliance with NZ Building Code.
