In order to create a comprehensive fire safety system, we understand that a range of fire safety solutions need to be considered to help our clients to protect the people within the facilities, provide security and peace of mind over the premises and underlying assets themselves.
A fire pump is an important part of any fire safety system. If you’re unfamiliar with fire pumps, how they work and why they’re important, we’ve included a breakdown on this below:
Fire Pumps: What are they and why are they important?
If a fire were to break out in your commercial premises, it’s important that safety solutions like sprinklers are activated immediately to extinguish or suppress and contain the fire until firefighters can arrive on the scene. However, sprinkler and hydrant systems require a lot of water pressure that needs to be delivered instantly, which is where the fire pump comes in.
The fire pump ensures that there is sufficient pressure for the water to reach the fire sprinklers or hydrant valves from the source which can be particularly challenging in tall buildings.
