Deadline Approaching for Fire Sprinkler O-Ring Recall

Wednesday, August 29, 2007 |

The Los Angeles Fire Department joins the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in urging property owners who have O-ring fire sprinklers covered under a previously-announced recall - and who have not yet filed a claim to replace them - to contact Central Sprinkler immediately!

Home and commercial property owners need to submit their claim by August 31, 2007 in order to receive free replacement heads. The voluntary replacement program, first announced in July 2001, included about 35 million O-ring fire sprinklers that might not operate in a fire.

Many thanks Brian for posting this important blog entry about the looming deadline for homeowners and building owners to submit their paperwork this week if they have the recalled sprinkler heads. It is crucial for affected consumers to have these sprinklers repaired to ensure that they have the best fire safety protection possible in their home or building.
