Fire Sprinkler Services in Springfield, IL


F. J. Murphy offers proprietary ultrasonic and non-invasive testing methods to determine the extent of piping corrosion and blockages in existing Fire Sprinkler systems without system disruption.  See our special MICINSPECT.COM website for more information on this state-of-the-art technology we provide.  As with anything, a fire sprinkler system is effective only when it works. This means that you have to maintain your sprinklers and have them repaired if they are somehow damaged. With F.J Murphy and Son’s highly skilled technicians, your fire sprinklers will stay in top condition. Based in Springfield and as one of the leading providers and servicers of Fire Sprinkler Systems in Illinois, we will ensure that your business (or residence) is well protected.

Fire sprinkler systems are part of the core of our company. More than forty years ago, F. J. Murphy & Son, Inc. decided to meet the ever increasing demand for fire sprinklers in central Illinois by starting a separate division within the company to address that demand. As all of our services have expanded, we have continued to offer the very best in Fire Sprinkler systems for both the public and private sectors. By law, most buildings must have a fully-functional system in place.


A responsible business wants to be protected from fire. A fire sprinkler system will  help save your building and its occupants, detecting a fire before it spreads and help to put it out automatically. Compared to fire extinguishers and other traditional methods of fire control, a fire sprinkler is superior in saving lives and preventing the destruction of property. A few very important words about Fire Sprinklers: they far exceed the performance of smoke detectors by immediately stopping the fire at its source. On one hand, while smoke detectors are certainly better than nothing at all, they only provide a notification that a fire is raging…assuming they are operational and someone is present to hear them. On the other hand, Fire Sprinklers also provide notification when there’s a fire, but they immediately begin to suppress the fire at its source. Since their basic operation is very simple, there has never been a loss of life in the U.S. due to a malfunctioning fire sprinkler system. Sprinklers don’t wait for the fire department to arrive, they don’t stand idle while the fire is burning, they are fully automatic and do not need anyone present to turn them on, Further, unlike “Hollywood” movie portrayals, they do NOT all turn on at the same time; only a single sprinkler head nearest to the fire will activate. If there are a lot of combustibles, more sprinkler “heads” in the immediate area may activate as needed. 


Certain fire-proofing tradeoffs using different building materials, drywall thicknesses, etc. while in the construction phase are common. However, without Fire Sprinklers, typically anything inside (contents and occupants) will be burned to a cinder and the building may be left standing after a fire. Think about it: fire proofing the structure only creates a big furnace in the interior. F.J Murphy and Son provides the very best Illinois fire sprinkler services for  any buildings that need adequate protection. Concerned about water damage? Think about it: even any slight water damage from sprinklers is far less than the firefighters will deliver from their hoses when they eventually arrive…if there’s anything left to fight for.
