Residential Sprinkler Systems
Fire Design Solutions provides a fully integrated cost effective design and install service for residential sprinkler systems, engineered to offer occupants the safest possible protection from fire. In the event of a fire they are design specifically to control the spread of a fire within an apartment and from that apartment to any other. This design criteria is essential when considering the evacuation philosophy applied to residential buildings. For people living in high rise buildings or those who may otherwise struggle with mobility, they can be a life saver.
The importance of Sprinkler Systems is underlined within the latest revision of Approved Document B - sprinkler systems are now an absolute requirement on residential developments with floors 30m above ground level.
FDS provide a complete range of systems from the basic code compliant systems to enhanced value engineered systems that allow for ongoing maintenance in the common area - therefore alleviating the need to enter the apartments every 6 months. Our innovative approach aligned with our full scale testing unit also allows for open plan apartment design.
FDS Residential Sprinkler Systems offer significant benefits including:
- Value engineered alternative to the basic code standards
- Open plan apartment layouts
- Failsafe double knock system to minimise potential accidental discharge
