Sprinkler System Installers fabricate, install, test, maintain and repair water, foam, carbon dioxide and dry chemical sprinkler systems in buildings for fire protection purposes.
Sprinkler system installers work primarily indoors, often in unheated or temporarily-heated spaces. They may also be required to install outdoor systems both above and below ground. The installation of sprinkler equipment takes place throughout all phases of construction, typically in the mid- to latter stages of new construction or in situations where renovation of existing structures is undertaken, or upgrading is legislated. Installers frequently work on the same site more than once and routinely perform a variety of tasks covering all aspects of the trade. They frequently are required to work in confined spaces and at heights.
