Hall & Kay Fire Engineering Protection Detection Safety

Sprinkler Systems

At Hall & Kay within the UK, we work to two main standards.

BS EN 12845:2015 is mainly used for Commercial and Industrial properties, with Hazard Classifications ranging from Light Hazard to Extra High Hazard.

BS 9251:2014 is used for Residential and Domestic Properties, ranging from Houses to High Rise Apartment Blocks.

Common Types of System

  • Wet – These systems are charged with water at all times, and are the most commonly used.
  • Dry – These are appropriate for applications either where there is a danger of the water in the pipework freezing, or where there may be temperatures of above 70°c.
  • Pre-Action – This is a dry-pipe system, which is linked to an automatic fire detection system protecting the same area. This is generally used in areas which could be damaged by water, such as electrical rooms or computer suites.

Wet & Dry Riser Systems

These are systems of pipework and valves, which are often found within high-rise buildings over 18m in height, which allows fire fighting water to be easily delivered to all floors.

Dry Risers are installed in buildings under 50m in height, and Wet Risers are installed in buildings over 50m in height, or less if the access to the building by Fire Services is insufficient.

Mist

We design, supply, install, test & commission Low Pressure Water Mist Systems to the two British Standards.

  • BS 8458:2015 – Residential & Domestic Watermist Systems
  • BS 8489:2016 – Industrial & Commercial Watermist Systems
