On Site Fire Protection
Alberta Fire Code Occupant Load
With the new COVID restrictions introduced as of November 24th, we have fielded a number of calls from clients wondering what their occupant load is. As a shortcut approximation, for a single story retail store, take your sales floor area in ft² and divide by
160 to get your 25% by 266 to get your 15% COVID restricted occupant load. This does not constitute legal advice. You should read the relevant sections of the Alberta Fire Code and Alberta Building Code or consult with a Safety Codes Officer to determine your actual occupant load.
One Call - Complete Protection
Simplify your fire safety maintenance program with a single point of contact. Our in-house technicians can service:
All building and system inspections include a detailed inspection report ensuring you have an accurate history of your compliance with Fire, Building, and OHS Codes and insurance requirements. Our local service area includes the greater Edmonton Metro region, including: Nisku, Leduc, Acheson, Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, St. Albert, Fort Saskatchewan, and Sherwood Park. Remote site service is available at an additional cost.
On Site Fire Protection started out with one technician and a mobile shop. Today we continue to offer on site maintenance of most fire extinguishers. Well suited to remote sites in general, our mobile shop can also ease the logistics of performing maintenance on large numbers fire extinguishers in any setting ranging from industrial facilities to high rise office buildings. Whether dealing with a handful of Cartridge Operated units at a remote gas plant, or dozens of Hydro-Static tests, performing maintenance on site can remove much of the hassle of keeping your safety equipment up to date.
Our high volume extinguisher service center on Wagner Road is set up to make life easier for the construction and industrial markets. If your Safety or Logistics departments can batch extinguishers into crates or palletized lots, we can take care of the rest. Either deliver with your preferred shipper, or let one of our techs stop by with a pick-up truck. Our 'all-in' maintenance rates are easy to understand, and capped repair rates will keep you from spending more on maintenance than you would on a replacement.
Volume rates are available for Fire Extinguisher inspections at our main service center on Wagner Road as low as $5 each, with cost control price caps for maintenance and repair. If you've got palletized or crated batches of fire extinguishers requiring service, this is the maintenance program for you. Conditions apply. See the flyer or call for details.
As primarily a service company, most regular service calls are booked within days. We do not perform the design/build work that ties up most Fire Alarm and Fire Sprinkler contractors for weeks or months at a time. Small jobs can usually be scheduled with under a week lead time, and clients not requiring a firm booking time can usually be squeezed in between jobs much sooner. Small businesses that bring in a couple extinguishers can normally be serviced in a couple minutes while they wait.
Have a problem with your current equipment and facilities? Maybe a new installation or renovation going in? On site Fire Protection is more than just inspections and maintenance. Our people have the right resources, working knowledge of applicable Code, good relationships with local authorities, and an ear to the ground for the latest and greatest technologies. If you have a problem related to Health & Safety, then we want to help you solve it.
