Previous installation experience in the Urbandale, Iowa warehouse facility gave Iron Mountain trust in Ahern for fire protection work in the 74,000 square-foot addition. Ahern used an in-rack system and installed 313 fire sprinklers on time, without issues or problems. Utilizing Ahern’s prefabrication shop for the system piping and proper scheduling allowed for complete quick and efficient installations.
