Residential Fire Protection
United States Alliance Fire Protection protects thousands of single-family houses, townhomes and low-rise condominiums. Since 1988, USAFP recognized that the residential construction process differs significantly from commercial. To better meet the need, a new division of specialized employees was created and continues to thrive today.
Residential fire sprinkler systems are simple by design; however putting them into stick-built homes requires experience and judgment. Our team works collaboratively with the builder and the municipality to find innovative residential fire protection solutions to the unique challenges that frequently arise during construction.
All home builders benefit from our competence and reliability. Prompt shop drawings and permits, timely field mobilization and trouble-free inspections are how we deliver extra value. You can confidently focus on your customers.
Today new homes are built with many safety enhancements, yet the need for residential fire protection has never been greater. Even if a home's construction could be deemed 100 percent noncombustible, the typical contents brought inside represents sufficient fuel to achieve deadly flashover in just minutes (see Flashover Chart). The prevalence of synthetic materials in these items produces a far more toxic byproduct than in the past and increase the need for home fire protection.
Homeowners with residential sprinklers can rely on United States Alliance Fire Protection for prompt inspections, testing and maintenance of their systems.
