J.W.Simpkin offer a full design and installation service for Wet & Dry Risers
Wet & Dry Risers are an essential part of any building design where the height of the building exceeds 18 metres from the fire brigade access level to the top floor. They are also required where there are floors more than 10 metres below ground.
The fire fighters fill the dry riser pipe with pressurised water by connecting the fire engine hose to the inlet on the ground floor. They can then connect hoses directly to the lifesaving water supply on the floor nearest to the fire using the outlet valves connected to the dry riser.
Connecting the hoses in this way is a much quicker system for the fire fighters. The hoses they use to connect on each floor are shorter and therefore lighter and there is no requirement to run long heavier hoses up through the whole of the building. Using Dry Risers saves time and ultimately saves lives.
Please fill in the form on the right and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible to enquire about wet & dry risers from J.W.Simpkin.
