Domestic Sprinkler Systems
With a massive increase in the domestic sector, developers are building on smaller footprints and therefore build more levels. Where compliance to Building Regulations cannot be met and where an additional fire stairs escape is not possible or will have a massive impact on the overall design, by installing a Sprinkler System the building will meet with building regulations. Loft conversions where the escape travels through an open plan ground floor no longer require firewalls or fire doors.
Domestic sprinkler installations will also allow:
- The requirement for an additional fire escape can be eliminated.
- Extended distance for Fire Brigade access limitations.
- Inner rooms in apartments are now compliant.
- Fire escape travel distance can be increased.
