Do I need sprinklers in my building?

After the pandemic, many people were without work and forced to make ends meet by means of side hustles and government assistance. Those same people have seen how it is in fact possible for them to make a living with their side hustle, so they took the entrepreneur route. As their businesses are growing, many are deciding to expand into commercial buildings, but this raises more questions. One of their recent questions is “Do I need sprinklers in my building?”

According to NFPA

According to the National Fire Association, NFPA 13 is an installation standard and does not specify which buildings or structures require a sprinkler system. NFPA 13 specifies how to properly design and install a sprinkler system using the proper components and materials after it has been determined that a sprinkler system is required. 

According to google and OSHA

According to google and other sources, automatic sprinkler systems are required in new commercial buildings with more than 5,000 square feet in the fire area. It has also been said that OSHA requires that sprinkler systems are inspected and tested annually to ensure that they will work correctly in the event of a fire.
