Fire Sprinklers

A fire sprinkler system in your home can save lives and property. Sprinkler systems are required in any new construction in West Vancouver. They also require periodic maintenance and an annual inspection by a qualified technician. If you live in an older home, a sprinkler system can be retrofitted to work on your property.

Your sprinkler system will activate when it senses fire and will discharge enough water to douse the flames.

Permit to Install Fire Sprinklers in Your Home 

A mechanical/plumbing permit is required to install a new sprinkler system in your home.
