Ultrasafe Sprinkler Solution:
As part of the modernisation the boarding school need a residential sprinkler system. Each of the four boarding houses was over four storeys in height . In order to meet the requirements of the Regulatory Reform Order each of the houses was fitted with a Low Flow Stored Pressure residential sprinkler system. This was seen as the best option given poor water pressures and lack of storage areas to install a water tank and pump set.
