Local Law 26: Fire Sprinkler Installation & Documentation
In June 2004, Local Law 26 was passed, requiring NYC buildings 100 feet tall or more to have fire sprinkler systems installed by July 1, 2019. As this deadline closes in, it is important to have your building fully sprinklered. Island Fire has experience designing and installing sprinkler systems to fit your building’s needs and comply with Local Law 26.
Does LL26 Affect My Building?
Local Law 26 of 2004 was passed in response to 9/11. At that time, many high-rise buildings had insufficient fire protection measures. LL26 was designed to improve the fire safety of NYC buildings. This law requires buildings classified as business occupancies that are at least 100 feet tall to have automatic fire sprinkler systems. If you are unsure if your building meets these requirements, give the technicians at Island Fire a call and they can help you determine if Local Law 26 applies to you.
If your building has a compliant fire sprinkler system already installed, you will want to be sure you have the proper documentation submitted. A licensed New York State engineer must file a report for your building, certifying that meet the requirements of Local Law 26. At Island Fire, our team of engineers can help you prepare the documentation you need to be in compliance with Local Law 26.
