BBC Drowns B-List Actors and Celebrities

Personally, I would rather gouge my own eyes out with a sharp stick than watch an episode of Eastenders however, apparently, in yesterday’s episode there was a trivial fire incident involving candles which triggered ALL the fire sprinklers within the large function area. They even featured a special sequence showing head after head activating! I have been involved in the residential fire sprinkler industry for many years and have been battling

hard against the misconception that every fire sprinkler head in a building would activate in the event of a fire. This myth is just one more factor which has prevented people from accepting fire sprinklers with open arms. True to say that a tragedy like Grenfell Tower has finally raised the profile/acceptance of home fire sprinkler systems marginally but it has been a very long hard battle against misinformation from sceptics desperate to dismiss the possibility that such systems are highly effective at saving lives rather than flooding properties. All it takes is an uninformed script writer and BBC producer within a highly influential company like the BBC to knock the industry back by years!  In this day and age, do intelligent script writers/producers still think that this scenario could happen? Or, has my previous 12 years of proselytisation been in vain?

“I know,” thought the scriptwriter, “let’s prevent people from burning to death in this episode by drowning them instead!”

” Great,” said the Producer – “let’s start with Dirty Den……….. what?  he’s not in it anymore?”

Now, I’m going to educate the BBC this time:

In fact, each sprinkler head has a heat-sensitive element., which triggers the devise closest to the heat and in 80% of cases will extinguish the fire. If one head doesn’t achieve this then an additional head or two will in virtually all cases.

I have used RAD for a couple of projects and found them to be good to deal with. They did a pair of 3 storey open plan houses and seven three and four story town houses. The sprinklers were to improve fire safety, allow more flexible space and comply with building regulations. The sprinklers were far more cost effective than the mist type systems and look very discrete when installed.

It has been a pleasure to deal with RAD for installation of fire sprinklers at our site is Sevenoaks. They were fast, professional, working to time and quote, which made it easy to work with them.

My requirement was a bit unusual for RAD in that I wanted a mist system in one room of a rented house. I had no drawings or technical back up. RAD were very helpful and repositioned the unit after the initial installation. Luckily with the help of Sonny, the engineer it all worked out very well.

As somebody who feels that it should be a necessity for all properties to have fire sprinkler systems, I am a big fan of this company. I have used them numerous times to service my home system and they are very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend their service.

One look at Rad Fire Sprinkler's website will tell you that these guys know exactly what they are talking about when it comes to Fire Sprinklers and the legislation surrounding fire safety. A very trustworthy company.
