Sprinkler and Mechanical Systems

What is a Sprinkler System?

Automatic fire sprinkler systems are a commonly used method of fire protection. The system is made up of sprinkler heads installed throughout a property that are linked via pipes to a water supply system. There are different types of sprinkler systems:

  • Dry sprinkler systems are charged with compressed air or inert gas. These are installed in properties where there is a risk of pipes freezing
  • Wet sprinkler systems are installed when there is no risk of pipes freezing. This type of system is constantly pressured with water and is activated when a sprinkler head is activated

What is a Dry Riser?

Dry risers are used to provide water within buildings for firefighting. The water is distributed through a vertical pipe that travels through the levels of a building and water is distributed via outlets.

What is a Wet Riser?

Like a dry riser, a wet riser is used to provide water within buildings for firefighting. The difference is that wet risers are permanently charged with water.
