The automatic sprinkler system is the most commonly used fire protection system today. Surefire can provide LPS 1048 certified design, installation and servicing across all system types in accordance with BSEN 12845 Incorporating LPCB Technical Bulletins for commercial properties and BS 9251 standards for domestic and residential systems certified under the FIRAS scheme.
Sprinkler systems are designed to provide immediate fire defence to protect lives and minimise material losses. It has been proven that most building fires are controlled by four sprinkler heads or fewer and most fires are managed well in advance of the Fire authorities being in attendance.
The volume of water used by a properly designed, installed and maintained automatic fire sprinkler system to control a fire will be significantly less than that used by the fire service to control and extinguish the same fire.
Typically our sprinkler systems are being used within:-
Once installed, caring for your sprinkler system will form part of the building facilities management. To ensure correct operation in the event of a fire and conform to British Standards and LPC rules, sprinklers systems must be maintained and tested at scheduled intervals.
Sprinkler tank inspection, where the tank is drained, examined and cleaned as necessary. Tank inspections can be completed with specialist technology including submersible camera equipment operated vehicles without the need for draining the water storage tank. Detailed inspection reports with photographic supporting evidence can be provided by Surefire to meet your compliance obligations.
Every 25 years the sprinkler heads are required to be third party tested. This involves removing a number of sprinkler heads from the location and new sprinkler heads installed. The samples are then sent away to an approved testing laboratory to be checked/verified they are working to the manufacturers requirements. The minimum sample size shall be 5% or twenty heads (whichever is the greater).
Choosing the correct sprinkler system for your requirements can be confusing.
Our sprinkler team are accredited to LPS1048, for installation and sprinkler fit-outs to Category A and B.
