Product Advice: Fire sprinkler installation

Whether you’re a mechanical & electrical or sprinkler contractor working on a commercial premise, residential tower block or public space, the inclusion of strong fire sprinkler systems is a bare essential. From choosing fire-resistant products to specifying the right kind of support systems for fire-sprinkler solutions, we’ve got the advice you need to complete a successful fire sprinkler installation.

The 3 main types of Fire Sprinkler Systems are as follows:

  • Wet Fire Sprinkler System. A wet fire sprinkler system is one of the most common options on the market. …
  • Dry Fire Sprinkler System. A dry fire sprinkler system is filled with pressurised air, rather than water. …
  • Preaction Fire Sprinkler System

When it comes to fire sprinkler installations, opting for high-performance and industry-certified support products is a bare essential. To get our customers off to the best possible start, we’re highlighting our best fire suppression installation products – all available for RAPID delivery!

How to Start the Process

Before you get to work on your fire installation project, take some time to think about what the process is going to look like. Always remember that the key to a successful fire sprinkler installation lies in a strong design that’s based on specific equipment. Adopt that philosophy from the get-go, and proceed from there.

Before you start ordering products, take note of the kind of pipe you use for your sprinkler system as certain supports and clips work best on different types of pipe.

From Rubber-Lined Clips, Filbows and Wrap Around Straps to Side Mount Straps and Two Hole Straps. Make sure you select your pipe support products with care.
