Fire Sprinkler Design, Installation & Maintenance

Did you know, fire sprinklers are heat activated and only the sprinkler head above the fire will activate. In 98% of cases, fires are extinguished by the activation of just one sprinkler head. The other sprinkler heads remain closed. This ensures that no water is applied to areas where there is no fire and reduces the amount of water needed.

Sprinklers reduce injury by 80% and damage to property by 90%, as well as reducing damage to the environment caused by the fire.*

A correctly designed and installed sprinkler system can detect and control a fire at an early stage of development and activate an alarm. Operation of the system will rapidly reduce the rate of production of heat and smoke, allowing more time for the occupants to escape to safety or to be rescued. 

The British Standard (BS9251: 2014) accordingly covers design, installation, components, water supplies, maintenance and testing of residential and domestic sprinkler systems installed for life safety purposes. Residential and domestic fire sprinkler systems are systems in accordance with this standard and consist of a water supply, backflow prevention valve (check valve), stop valve, priority demand valve (where required), automatic alarm system (both internal and external) and pipe work to quick response sprinklers.

The sprinklers are fitted at specified locations, the appropriate sprinkler type being used for each location. Sprinklers operate at a pre-determined temperature to discharge water over a known area below. The flow of water thus initiated causes the sounding of an alarm. Only certain sprinklers, which are individually heated above their operating temperature by the heat from the fire, operate.

All of our systems are supported by a 12-month parts and labour service warranty. Full after-sales support is provided with suitably scaled inspections tailored to meet your individual needs.

We take pride in our aftercare service, offering maintenance agreements and extended warranties. Details are available upon request. We also maintain residential fire sprinkler systems installed by third parties.

Fire Sprinkler Design

All Golder Solutions Fire Sprinkler systems are designed to meet the requirements of BS9251: 2014.

The designs are produced by our in-house Design Team utilising the latest CAD software. Positioning of valve sets, pipework (including sizes), sprinkler heads and any other system components, will be detailed within our preliminary design drawings and schematics. Hydraulic calculations will be carried out using Canute Software to ascertain the correct flow-rates and working pressures required by the proposed fire sprinkler installation.

We also provide a design service for other fire sprinkler installation contractors. Please contact us for further information

Installation

Sprinkler System Installation

Golder Solutions fire sprinkler installations follow the design drawings issued for construction. All materials and components used within the installation process are UL-approved, to ensure compliance with British Standards as appropriate.

All of our operatives come with a wealth of experience and are qualified to the highest industry standards; this includes holding a CSCS Card and all have completed the relevant product training.

Each fire sprinkler system is designed and installed to optimum hydraulics and cost-effectiveness.

Ever mindful of the finished property aesthetics, our design team will coordinate with other ceiling fixtures to ensure an aesthetically pleasing finish whilst maintaining compliance with BS9251: 2014 and the manufacturer’s recommendations.

When retrofitting fire sprinkler systems into properties, our technicians have a wealth of experience in ensuring the least disruption possible is incurred - particularly when properties are occupied during the installation process.

Maintenance

Sprinkler Maintenance & Warranty

The provision of a sprinkler system does not negate the need for other fire precautions or practical measures, which may include structural fire resistance, escape routes, smoke or fire detectors and safe housekeeping practices. Even with the installation of a sprinkler system, normal actions on the discovery of a fire should be taken, such as immediate evacuation and the calling of the fire service. The sprinkler system should be turned off by the fire service when it is deemed safe to do so.

Sprinkler system maintenance is not complex but is essential. It is important that owners and occupiers pay particular attention to precautions issued by the sprinkler contractor, such as the avoidance of obstructions to the sprinkler, or the painting of the sprinkler head. They should also ensure that maintenance is carried out annually.

All of our systems are supported by a 12-month parts and labour service warranty. Full after-sales support is provided with suitably scaled inspections tailored to meet your individual needs.

We take pride in our aftercare service, offering maintenance agreements and extended warranties. Details are available upon request.

We also maintain residential fire sprinkler systems installed by third parties.
