Help save property and lives every day. Discover a challenging and rewarding career as a union sprinkler fitter. The installation of sprinkler fire protection systems is a critical step in the construction of any building. Sprinkler fitters will largely find themselves in commercial buildings and work with valves, hangers and steel or plastic pipes. Most of the work takes place at the ceiling level using ladders and lift platform at heights generally ranging from 8 to 20 feet, and, in some cases, up to 100 feet.
Sprinkler fitters work in existing and newly-constructed buildings, in conditions ranging from hot boiler rooms to unheated open buildings at winter temperatures.
