Fire Protection Fabrication Shop


Our fire protection shop prefabricates piping and components for installations across the nation. Prefabrication improves the efficiency and accuracy of your projects.


In 2021, we prefabricated orders for over 260,000 sprinkler heads. The average turnaround time was 2.06 days with 99.4% on-time delivery.

I was very pleased with Ahern’s workmanship and schedule. Everything was done on time and within the budget.
