We will ensure that your wet and dry risers are fit for use whenever you may need them, keeping your building and employees safe and protected should a fire break out. Depending on the size of your building, you may need to install either a wet riser or a dry riser:
Wet risers – buildings which stand at 50m+ will require a wet riser as opposed to a dry riser. As the name would suggest, it contains water, ensuring even the top levels of a building will benefit from a wet riser should a fire breakout. This means that taller buildings won’t have to wait for water to be pumped up to higher floors – a crucial element in the event of a fire when time is of the essence.
Dry risers – should a building stand at 18m+, the installation of a dry riser would be more suitable. A dry pipe network is utilised which emergency services can easily connect to, pumping water around the pipes to provide protection.
