Are you considering fitting a domestic fire sprinkler system in your home?
So you have a dream design, open plan fresh flowing glass and minimalistic – then a Building Control Officer suggests “to have this you need a home fire sprinkler system…”
When was the last time you heard of a fire sprinkler system in a domestic house? The answer is probably never. Many people can not believe that in the UK there has never been a fire death in a property with a fitted sprinkler system and there are more then you think. As in deed our biggest domestic market is in and around Central London.
A fire suppression system from Ultrasafe is your first line of defence against fire. We will design, install and maintain a sprinkler system that will contain a blaze within seconds of it breaking out, buying precious time for the fire brigade to arrive, and for lives and possessions to be saved. Not only do fire sprinklers protect families and vulnerable people, they protect animals, art collections, exquisite interior designs, classic cars and lavish soft furnishings. Who would not want protection from fire?
Space is a premium in London homes, so sub-terrain and basement conversions are on the increase, as is adding another level UP in the loft or roof. We have seen a surge in these type of designs and therefore our home fire sprinklers can keep your dream house a reality without compromise.
We understand that a home sprinkler system is not exactly the consumer purchase of choice. Unlike windows and doors there are no expensive TV ads or posters on the side of buses. Having a home sprinkler system is for many the last thing they would want in their property never mind budgeted for it – but you may be surprised it is the latest trend in fire safety and often essential.
Within reason sprinklers can be fitted anywhere. You could have an expensive private collection which means everything to you, or simply you want to make sure that your family has the highest levels of protection possible.
Ultrasafe have many years experience enabling us to design bespoke sprinkler systems for unusual projects. This means that we will be able to supply the ideal solution customised to your needs and give you the most effective fire protection for your home within your budget. See our Domestic Sprinkler Case Studies for some examples of projects that we have completed.
We will try to make the process as painless as possible for you. We will give you all the advice and honest support possible to ensure that you are fully aware of what is required to install a sprinkler system in your home. Naturally installing a fire sprinkler system in a new building is a lot easier than a retrospective fit out, although the latter is always possible.
Whatever the reason know this:
A home fire sprinkler system is like having a fire-fighter in every room, 24/7. They are discreet, concealed within the ceiling or wall, safe and life savers. Sprinklers never false alarm and will contain, control and in many cases extinguish a fire altogether well before the professionals arrive.
Fire and Rescue services throughout UK recommend fire sprinklers in the home. For example: Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service, Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service, Dorset Fire and Rescue Service, Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service, Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service and the list goes on.
