Dry Riser Maintenance In The Public Sector

By October 26, 2022No Comments

In the event of a fire emergency, every second really does count. This is one reason why dry riser maintenance in public sector premises is essential. The dry riser inlet box is used by the firefighters. It enables them to gain fast water access to manage and put out the fire. By having the build in distribution system, known as a dry riser, the fire service is able to do their job quickly and efficiently.

The dry riser system can save firefighter’s valuable time. It means that they don’t have to create their own water distribution system. This time saved could make the difference between life and death, which is why dry riser maintenance in public sector buildings is so important. It means your dry riser can be relied upon in the case of a fire emergency.

If the fire service needs to deliver water to the upper floors of a large public sector building, the dry riser system must be working correctly. If the dry riser box fails, the consequences of this could be catastrophic to the building and those within it. This is why we offer a dry riser maintenance service to public sector buildings. This way, if the worst happens you know your dry riser can be relied upon.
