Fire System Testing
Fire hydrants and fire systems on all sites, such as hospitals, universities or pharmaceutical plants, need to be maintained and tested as part of your annual maintenance program. Testing and maintenance should be conducted for both insurance purposes and to ensure operability if a fire was to occur.
Testing includes:

  • Visual Inspection of all hydrants and surrounds
  • Flow Rates
  • Dynamic and Static Pressures

All testing conducted in accordance with BS:5306
all parts.

Flow Simulation
In assessing water distribution
for new sites, whether for an extension
or a complete new build, water delivery
is critical. The level of services at critical
points on a water network are
measured through pressure logging,
whilst simulating flows at peak demand
determines the suitability of the water
main for expansion.
