Wet & Dry Risers - Design, Installation and Maintenance

Wet / Dry Risers

Wet and Dry risers are intended for the use of the Fire Service. Therefore, they are designed to provide a readily available means of delivering considerable quantities of water.

A Dry riser is a system of valves and pipework. It allows the fire brigade to pump water on to the upper floors of a building, and is used in buildings 18m high.

A Wet riser is a system of valves and pipework that is kept permanently charged with water. It is used in building 60m above ground level.

Wet and Dry risers are at risk of neglect and vandalism. Not only is there great potential for damage if a riser leaks but there are severe penalties should they fail to work for the fire service.

Blazequel maintain dry and wet riser systems in accordance with the British Standard BS5306 Part 3. Under this standard, dry and wet risers should be:

  • Visually inspected every 6 months
  • Serviced annually
