Dry Risers

Dry Risers Solutions for Fire Suppression

Dry Risers are an essential part of any building design where the height of the building exceeds 18 metres from the fire brigade access level to the top floor.  They are also required where there are floors more than 10 metres below ground.
 Dry riser solutions are designed to enhance fire safety infrastructure. As a leading authority in the fire suppression industry, here at Ultrasafe we take pride in delivering unparalleled expertise, quality products, and unmatched service for your peace of mind.

What are Dry Risers and why Choose Ultrasafe?

A dry riser comprises a network of pipes and valves running vertically throughout a building, providing firefighters easy access to water on each floor during emergencies. The system includes a vertical pipe with a ground-level water inlet on an external wall and landing valves, typically housed in a dry riser cabinet on each floor, all within the fire-fighting shaft.

    Why do you need Dry Risers?

For optimal functionality and adherence to legal standards, your system must undergo careful design, installation, and regular testing in accordance with British Standards, specifically BS9990:2015, BS9991, BS9999, and Approved Document B (Fire Safety) of the Building Regulations (England & Wales). Further information on standards can be found here. https://knowledge.bsigroup.com/
In the event of a fire, the individual responsible for the building – be it the property owner, landlord, or facilities manager – must demonstrate that the dry riser system has been regularly tested and possesses a valid certificate of compliance.
As per BS9990 guidelines, it is recommended to visually test a dry riser every six months, and legally, dry risers must undergo an annual testing requirement. This ensures not only the effectiveness of the system but also its alignment with legal obligations.
