Fire is potentially the greatest threat to life and property, therefore it’s reassuring to know that Chubb’s experience in fire sprinkler installation and maintenance in New Zealand is based on more than 50 years experience.

When considering the installation of a fire sprinkler system don’t think of the dramatic fire sprinkler system activations seen in Hollywood movies. Only a small number of localised fire sprinkler heads in a building are activated when the initial fire size itself is quite small. New Zealand has a highly valued reputation in the world for successful containment and extinguishment of fires via fire sprinkler systems (99% plus) and Chubb is a proud leader in this successful statistic.

The majority of fire sprinkler systems in New Zealand are designed to our New Zealand Commercial and Residential Standards NZS4541 and NZS4515, although depending on client special needs Chubb can also design and install systems to other recognised world standards. For clients looking to install a fire sprinkler system in their domestic house Chubb can also install these to the New Zealand Standard NZS4517.

As well as the initial installation comprising great design, quality, cost effectiveness and skilled installation with a fully inspected and certified finished product, the success of a fire sprinkler system has as much to do with regular testing and maintenance. Chubb is a leader in both the initial construction and subsequent delivery of quality testing and maintenance via our ChubbCare service package tailored to meet all your Building Act Building Warrant of Fitness needs (BWoF).

Chubb’s expertise enables us to provide for all forms of construction projects a complete turn key package including project management, design, construction, and commissioning services. Following construction, or for any building owner who requires a high quality preventative maintenance and call out service, Chubb provides technical expertise for all areas of both Building Warrant of Fitness (BWOF) and general system testing and maintenance. This is via our premium business product ChubbCare. Presently we have fire sprinkler service vehicles throughout the country, each fully equipped and operated by skilled tradesmen.
