Fire Sprinkler Systems
Residential and Domestic Fire Sprinkler Systems
QSD is a market leader in the installation of residential and domestic sprinkler systems which are designed and installed to meet BS9251 and BS EN 12845. We have installed sprinkler systems in all sectors of the residential and domestic market place and our team or knowledgeable technical experts are available to advice you on your project from the earliest of planning stages.
We use only the best quality CPVC pipework in our installations we use concealed sprinkler heads which are installed flush to the ceiling. When the sprinkler head operates, the flow of water in the pipework operates a flow switch which in turn operates a alarm system. The flow of water is small and typically much less than water used by Fire and Rescue Services.
Contrast to the myth sprinkler heads do not accidently go off and are only triggered by a real fire. They are also extreamly reliable and only 1 sprinkler in 16,000,000 exhibits any form of manufacturing defect.
All our fire sprinkler systems are designed in house by our qualified design engineers and are compliant to BS9251. Each sprinkler system design is bespoke to each project and our designers take into consideration the appropriate sprinkler head location for fire protection as well as being sympathetic to the visual look of the ceiling.
QSD works alongside developers, architects, water companies, landlords, care providers and home owners. We can liaise with your local authority, building control department to ensure your sprinkler system design is of the highest quality, bespoke to your project.
Our installers are familiar and experienced with the variety of installation techniques required for different installations. We pressure test our systems after completion of 1st fix to check for leaks. On commissioning the system at 2nd fix we provide all cerfitication and full training on using the system is provided.
Fire Sprinkler System Service and Maintenance
It is a requirement of BS9251 that residential and domestic sprinkler systems are serviced and maintained annually. All services completed by QSD are completed by one of our competent and qualified team members. The cost of a service varies based on the size and complexities of the project please contact us for a competitive service quotation.
Our fire sprinkler maintenance check includes inspection of the heads to ensure they are fitted correctly, there is no signs of leakage, that the head still covers the protected area, inspection of lagging (if applicable), inspection of pump (if applicable) and inspection of tank (if applicable). We also complete a full commissioning test and prove a certificate for the service along with signing to verify the service in the system log book. In the unlikely event the system fails the inspection or requires remedial work, a full report will be issued along with a full quotation.
