What legislation do directors, managers, and other persons of authority who are responsible for the safety of others in any building need to be aware of?
Our team at AMSL Group has over 40 years of experience providing advice and assistance about fire safety solutions, products, and servicing. We provide a complete and comprehensive review for all our client’s fire safety requirements based on Irish and European fire protection legislation. Our qualified team of technicians carry out all installation and service maintenance work to NSAI IS:291:2015 standards. Fire extinguishers should be serviced at least once a year to ensure that they are in perfect working order. During each service visit, a member of our team will also carry out a fire safety report of your premises to ensure you have all the equipment you need in the event of an emergency.
In addition, AMSL Group also offers our clients Wet and Dry rising mains full bi-annualservice maintenance contractsin accordance with “BS9990:2015 The Code of Practice for non-Automatic Fire Fighting Systems” and our technicians are trained to ensure the firefighting equipment in buildings are always safe fit for purpose and ready for use in the event of an emergency situation.
A Dry Rising System is a vertical water supply pipe installed in a building for use by the fire services for fire-fighting purposes. It is fitted with inlet connections at a fire service access level and landing valves at specified points. It is maintained empty of water but is charged with water usually by pumping from fire and rescue service appliances in the event of a fire via a dry “inlet breaching” on the outside wall of a property. Wet Rising Systems are permanently charged with water and ensure water is immediately available for firefighting.
Dry and Wet Risers are installed up to 50 metres in height.Where a building extends more than 50 metres higher than the fire service vehicle access level then only Wet Risers should be installed due to the pressure required to provide water supplies to the landing valves on upper floors being greater than can be provided by a fire service appliance.
The “responsible person” who either owns or manages a building/s has a legal responsibility and duty of care to ensure the service maintenance of a Dry Riser system. They must have a 6 monthly visual inspection and an annual 12 Bar wet test complete with certification. Failure to do so can result in insurance being invalidated, revoked and or prosecution if the system fails.
All our Dry & Wet rising mains are maintained using our Fire tender (truck) to simulate a real live emergency fire event to check the performance and functionality of gate vales, inlets, and pressure release valves.Call us now on 01-6316076 or email us at email@example.com for your FREE consultation.
