Dry Risers Cwmbran

Dry and wet risers are fixed systems used by firefighters to transport water throughout a premises in the event of a fire. Dry risers are usually found in tall buildings where it is not possible to have a water supply at ground level. They consist of a network of pipes that run from the ground floor up to the top of the building, with outlets at each level. Wet risers are similar to dry risers, but they are filled with water at all times. This means that they can be used immediately in the event of a fire, without the need to pump water into them first. Both types of system are essential for fire safety in larger buildings, and Dry Risers Bridgend can provide expert advice on installing and maintaining them.

Dry riser systems in Cwmbran

Dry risers are an essential part of any high-rise building's fire safety system. These are generally found in properties over 18m tall, and essentially consist of a network of pipes that allow for water to be delivered to upper floors if a fire should break out in these areas. Usually positioned in a staircase, they feature an inlet at ground level that can be used by emergency services to pump water up the building to an outlet at each landing on the upper floors. The fire brigade can then attach a firefighting hose to the outlet and tackle the fire. Dry risers need to be regularly serviced and tested to ensure that they are in working order, as they could potentially mean the difference between life and death in the event of a fire.
