Dry and wet risers are essential fire safety features in larger buildings. Dry risers are fixed systems that bring water to the upper floors of a building, while wet risers are always filled with water and ready for use. Both types of risers play an important role in fire safety, and they can be used by firefighters to quickly transport water throughout a premises. Dry risers are typically located in stairwells or other enclosed spaces, while wet risers are usually placed near fire hoses. In the event of a fire, firefighters can connect a hose to the riser and use the system to quickly extinguish the blaze. Dry and wet risers are essential fire safety features that can help to save lives in the event of a fire.

Dry riser systems in Cardiff

Dry risers are an essential part of any high-rise building's fire safety system. They provide a means for the delivery of water to upper floors in the event of a fire, and are typically located in stairwells. Dry risers consist of a network of pipes that run from an inlet at ground level to outlets on each landing. The fire brigade can then attach a hose to the outlet and pump water up to the affected floor. Dry risers are an effective way of tackling fires in high-rise buildings, and are required by law in all new buildings over 18m tall. However, they must be regularly serviced and maintained in order to remain effective, and local authorities Bridgend Dry Risers have responsibility for ensuring that this is carried out.
