Fire Hydrants & Risers
Fire hydrants and risers are designed to provide the fire service with a constant fire water supply close to the area of risk. Risers installed in high-rise buildings are located every few floors, onto which the fire service can connect their hoses.
Risers eliminate the need for fire-fighters to pull hoses up multiple levels of a building, increasing the speed by which the fire can be tackled. In addition, risers prevent the stairways becoming blocked with hoses, allowing the building to be evacuated more effectively
Fire Hydrants and Risers are your main line of fire water supply to the building. This means that proper installation and maintenance is essential for your safety.
