Fire Suppression Expert Witness & Fire Sprinkler Consultant

IEI fire protection experts investigate alleged defects related to fire suppression systems

Ivey Engineering’s fire suppression expert witnesses and fire sprinkler consultants have experience with all types of fire protection systems. These include wet, dry, deluge, clean agents (Halon, FM-200, Inergen,  carbon dioxide), electric and diesel fire pumping systems.

The company’s experts investigate failures and code compliance of fire sprinkler systems. Property damage often results when fire suppression systems leak, freeze or are installed in areas with elevated temperatures that exceed the sprinkler rating.
