Wet and Dry Risersdelivering water to where it is needed
EFL can provide a comprehensive range of wet and dry riser services including:
- system design
- full installation
- preventative maintenance
Dry risers consist of a main water supply pipe permanently installed within the building. Under normal circumstances this is does not contain any water hence the description “dry”.
If the need arises this pipework is used for fire-fighting purposes, the fire services connect their hoses to the external “inlet” whilst “outlets” are positioned in suitable locations, normally on each floor or staircase for connection of further hoses, using this system it is possible to deliver large amounts of water to various upper floors of a building quickly and easily without the need to trail hoses down staircases etc.
Dry risers should be inspected twice per annum consisting of a hydraulic test (pressure tested with water) and a visual inspection.
Here at EFL, we offer a full testing, maintenance and repair service to ensure that your legal obligations are met and your riser is fully operational should the need to use it ever arise. All of our riser testing is carried out to the highest standards.
Wet Riser Systems
Working along the same principles as dry riser systems, wet risers are typically installed in buildings over 50m tall and are permanently charged with water from a pressurised supply, outlet valves are fitted at specified points to allow the transportation of water to upper floors of a property.
EFL offer a full testing, maintenance and repair service to ensure that your systems are fully operational and fit for purpose.
Whatever environment you own or manage, the experts at EFL can provide you with professional help and assistance, ensuring you have the correct wet and dry riser system for your application and are complying with all necessary standards and legislation. So contact us today for more information!
