Joining Methods For Fire Protection Systems: CPVC vs. Steel

Installation methods for fire protection systems vary depending on the materials involved. Each material’s specific joining method has a direct impact on three key factors: Cost: Installation and labor accounts for more than half of the system’s total upfront cost. Time: In new builds, construction deadlines may be tight. In retrofits, the building may remain occupied during construction, which means the system must be completed as quickly as possible. Reliability: Installation mistakes can lead to premature failures and unnecessary repairs, resulting in an unreliable system in the event of a fire. For this reason, contractors and installers can benefit from being proactive in their piping material recommendations to building owners.
