Fire Hydrants

A fire hydrant is generally located in the roadway and allows access to the water main below ground for fire-fighting by the Fire Brigade.
Fire Hydrants Service and Maintenance

Hydrants are situated in footpaths or roadways and are protected by a rectangular metal cover marked FH. Close-by there will be a yellow marker plate fixed to a post or wall, to help locate the position of the hydrant. Hydrants are normally inspected and tested annually.

Surface Inspection - This includes a visual inspection of the hydrant frame, cover, surface area around the hydrant and the marker plate.

Sprinklers Service & Repair

All areas of the building to be protected are covered by a grid of pipes with sprinkler heads fitted into them at regular intervals. Water from a tank via pumps or from the town main (if it can provide sufficient flow) fill the pipes.
Fire System Sprinklers Service and Repair

Each sprinkler head operates only when it reaches its predetermined operating temperature and will then spray water on to a fire. The hot gases from a fire are usually enough to make the thermal element in the head operate. Only the sprinklers in the immediate area of the fire open. The others remain closed. This ensures that no water is applied to areas where there is no fire and reduces the amount of water needed.

Wet & Dry Risers

A dry or wet fire riser is installed within some buildings to aid the Fire Brigade when fighting a fire. The Brigade connects up their hose to the inlet valve on the outside of the building and also to the landing valve at the floor where the incident or fire is being tackled – this ensures a speedy delivery of the water.
Wet and Dry Risers

Dry and Wet Risers should be checked and serviced twice a year, the first (main) is a wet pressure test to 150 PSI or 10 Bar for a minimum of 15 minutes. All inlets and outlets are checked for leaks and any missing or faulty items would need to be replaced to enable a certification to be provided. Flow testing is also carried out at this time.

The second test (minor) is a visual checking and greasing of all moving parts with missing items being replaced.

Deafgard Alert Systems

In the event of fire, the deaf or hearing impaired are unable to hear a conventional fire alarm, which is where Deafgard comes in.
Deafgard Alert Systems

Deafgard provides a wireless solution for communicating the sound of a fire alarm to the deaf and hearing impaired whilst they are asleep, comprising a battery operated sensor unit and a pad that goes under the pillow.

When the fire alarm sounds, the pillow pad vibrates, LED lights flash and the LCD screen displays ‘fire’, effectively alerting the individual to the emergency. It even features a built-in alarm clock facility.

Door Release Systems

We offer a range of door release systems that work in conjunction with your alarm system to provide an effective escape route in the event of a fire.
Door Release Systems

There are two main types of system to choose form - door guards and door retainers - and our team of experts are on hand to advise on which is the most suitable for your situation.

Smoke Vent Systems

Also known as Automatic Opening Vents or AOV systems, they are another important fire safety system that can be linked to audible fire alarms or can stand alone.
Smoke Vent Systems

The purpose of AOV or smoke vent systems is to keep escape routes clear of smoke, for both escape and fire-fighting purposes. They can be configured using dedicated smoke shafts, vent doors, roof lights and windows depending on the environment and building type.

They can also use forced air systems to either push or pull the smoke from the building.

Suppression Systems

Otherwise known as extinguishant systems, these systems combine specialist gas extinguishants with fire alarm design and installation technology.
Suppression Systems

All systems offered by Pyrotec conform to BS6266: protection of electrical, computer and specialist environments.

Maintenance of these complex systems is essential and our comprehensive service plans includes all aspects of the installation.

Aspirating Fire Detection Systems

Aspirating or "Air Sampling" fire detection systems can be integrated with any Pyrotec fire detection system to provide highly sensitive detection with minimal risk of unwanted alarms.
Aspirating Fire Detection Systems

These systems use special pipes with air inlet holes drilled at specific intervals, depending on the environment in which they are being installed and the length and design of the pipe run.

A low volume of air is drawn into the pipe through the inlet holes and passes through the detection unit located at the end of the pipe where it is analysed and an alarm raised if smoke is detected.

There are several models of detection unit available, with different types detection used in each depending on the required application, some of which are listed below:
