The role of Dry and Wet Risers

Dry Risers: A Vertical Lifeline for Firefighters

Dry risers are vertical pipes installed in buildings to provide firefighters with a dedicated water supply for extinguishing fires in upper levels. Unlike wet risers, dry risers are empty until needed, preventing water from stagnating and avoiding potential issues like freezing. Our dry riser systems are meticulously designed, regularly inspected, and strategically placed to guarantee quick access to water where and when it is needed most.

Wet Risers: Continuous Readiness for Fire Response

Wet risers, on the other hand, are constantly charged with water, eliminating the need for on-site water supply during an emergency. These systems are particularly beneficial in high-rise buildings and structures where the vertical distribution of water is crucial. Ignus Fire Services Ltd offers state-of-the-art wet riser solutions, ensuring a continuous and reliable water source for firefighting operations.

Comprehensive Installation and Maintenance:

Our commitment to fire safety extends to the meticulous installation and maintenance of both dry and wet riser systems. We collaborate closely with property owners, managers, and local authorities to assess the unique needs of each environment, ensuring that riser systems are tailored to the specific challenges posed by the building or structure.
