The Shambaugh Advantage

There are many reasons why working with Shambaugh is the right choice for your fire protection needs, but our extensive experience and knowledge rank among the most compelling.

Our Fire protection Division has been in business for 50 years and currently employees approximately 160 office personnel and 525 field installers.

We self-perform all aspects of fire protection services, which consists of sales, design, fabrication, and installation. Our design resources consist of 75 NICET-certified project designers, and we utilize Auto AD, HydraCALC, and BIM software.

We bring our industry expertise to every fire equipment testing job.

Redefining fabrication

Shambaugh gives you the missing links between design, procurement, and scheduling. We fabricate our own piping, which means we're truly redefining the entire fabrication process. These unique benefits alone result in a significant reduction in cost and schedule, and they provide an even higher level of quality assurance due to the controlled environment in which we operate.

More than capable—consistent

Our capabilities are many and varied, and you can rest assured that we can handle projects of virtually any size. In terms of larger projects, we have the ability to prefabricate and deliver sprinkler systems consisting of over 40,000 sprinklers every week. We complete over 600 fire protection projects per year throughout the country.

Over the years, Shambaugh has successfully completed fire protection services for over 1 billion square feet of facilities throughout the United States.
