SAVE Face

Atlantic Mutual's SAVE (Sprinkler Analysis Verification Evaluation) software enables loss control professionals and agents to more quickly evaluate a customer's fire sprinkler system and water supply, resulting in a more accurate assessment and better protection of property and business assets. SAVE automatically calculates sprinkler design adequacy, including density and area adjustments, pipe schedule capabilities, water supply adequacy for sprinklers and hose demand, two-inch drain test flow estimates and in-rack demands. The program's series of drop-down menus guide the user through all of the factors needed to evaluate a sprinkler system. The software automatically plots available water supply vs. system demand.
