Fire Safety Engineering – Code Consulting for Schools

With decades of fire safety experience, our Fire Protection Engineers will ensure schools maximize fire safety protocols

Because of the nature of what is being protected, our youth, educational facilities are typically designed and constructed with a higher level of safety than other facilities. Additionally, children are generally not considered capable of self-preservation, and they rely heavily on building staff, in approximately a 1:30 ratio, to assist with evacuation from buildings.

We are school fire safety code experts

Because of the unique character of schools, building codes often require much more stringent construction requirements for schools, far beyond the minimum requirements acceptable for other types of facilities. Some additional fire protection and life-safety features for schools include providing: full coverage smoke detection, rated interior walls (corridors and demising walls), and a public address system. Many jurisdictions also require all educational facilities’ life-safety systems to be provided with a professionally engineered design.

Zari Consulting Group is often asked to provide a fully engineered automatic fire sprinkler system or fire alarm system design for educational complexes.
