What is a Dry Riser System?

Typically installed in buildings higher than 18 metres, dry riser systems are made up of a water-tight pipe network that feed floors of your building. In the event of a fire, water can be delivered via this system by the emergency services to assist putting out a fire quicker and more effectively.

For most high-rise buildings in the UK, Dry Riser systems are usually located in staircases and use a ground level inlet specifically placed to allow easy access for the fire brigade. In principle a dry riser creates a direct connection between floors, allowing firefighters to attach a hose and fight fire up close, limiting damage to your building.

We have the ability to provide expert advice on Dry Riser placement and installations for buildings of all sizes. Our fire safety engineers create safety systems built to your requirements, with precision, competence and experience. The systems can be fabricated to match your building and then maintained bi-annually to ensure they are ready and waiting in the event of an emergency.

Our highly experienced team can offer a complete design, installation and maintenance service

Designing a Dry and Wet Riser system is something that must be undertaken by a responsible and experienced fire safety team.

By law a Dry and Wet Riser system must have fire engine access within 18m of the inlet box in order to guarantee access and housed within a fire-resistant shaft, to protect the integrity of system when not in use. In the case of most commercial premises, the inlet is usually located under a staircase or ground level fire exit.
