FIRE HYDRANTS SYSTEMS :
We are engaged in offering our client supply, installation and commissioning for fire fighting systems, The initial step at any project starts at the planning and Design Department. A pre - planning study determines the type of protection needed according to specifications of the building or the project, hence determining the type of the Fire safety system required.
This essential step is made by resourceful and experienced engineers at the team, who make architectural drawings for the facility showing detailed locations and specifications of various elements of the system required by the systems to perform with utmost efficiency and in accordance with Indian and international standards and government regulations. We also undertake annul maintenance contract for the fire fighting systems
Brothers Fire Systems India planning & Design Department is backed up by Rich Experienced Engineers and project managers, offering Consultation and advice on how best to upgrade, extend or replace existing systems.
DRY RISER SYSTEMS :
Dry Riser Systems are designed to help fire fighters easily access water on all floors and all lobbies connected during fire fighting emergencies. Made up of a system of water inlets, pipes, and outlets spread out through a building across all levels, these systems are normally situated along with the building fire fighting shaft.
A dry rise is made up of outlets, also referred to as hydrants valves, located on each floor dry riser, with vertical piping and an inlet located on the external wall at the building’s ground level. Occupied buildings with a height exceeding 15 meters are legally required a have a dry riser.
Guidelines and approval for Hydrant System are available from various national and international organizations like: NBC, NFPA, TAC, IS, FM and Local Fire Authorities.
WET RISER SYSTEMS :
Wet risers are used to supply water within building for fire fighting purposes. The provision of a built-in water distribution means that fire fighters do not need to create their own distribution fire fighting systems in order to fight a fire and avoids the breaching of fire compartments by running hose lines between them entry.
Wet risers are permanently charged with water. This is as opposed to dry riser which does not contain water when they are not being used, but are charged with water by fire departments pumping systems when necessary. Wet risers are charged with water from pressurized water, often pumped from a storage tank, with landing valve at specified location on each floor.
Wet risers should be within fire-fighting shafts, and where necessary in protected escape stairs. Wet riser outlets or ‘landing valve’ may be within in protecting lobbies, stairs or enclosures where these are available.
COTYARD SYSTEMS :
Fire fighting courtyard line Hydrant systems are the most commonly used, in many residential, commercials, storage, werehouse, and industrial projects. If you have ever seen a “Red” color pipe network in the around the premises, a building or factory, you have seen a Fire Hydrant Pipe. In most news clippings about a fire, you can see a fireman shooting water up to 8 stories high or more, that fire man is using the Fire Hydrant System. Such is the power of the Fire Hydrant System that water can be shot right up to 8 floors, directly into the fire.
This is very effective extinguishing system suitable for various plants and high-rise buildings as well as commercial complexes. The system mainly consists of water storage reservoir (underground or aboveground), pump set, piping ring around the building and terminals inside the building, hydrant valves, hoses, branch pipes with nozzles and hose boxes. On the ring main the hydrant stand posts are provided with hydrant valves.
