How to Instruct Your Fire Sprinkler Installer

Our Fire Sprinkler Installer Tips

Check out these tips on what you should ask your fire sprinkler installer below.


  • What accreditation does the installation company have?
  • Does the company specialise solely in residential and domestic fire sprinkler systems? – many companies have considered the residential fire sprinkler industry as promising and are ‘dabbling’ in it or just sub-contracting the work.
  • How many years has the company been installing these systems? Always try to find a company which specialises in these systems exclusively.
  • What exactly are you being quoted for? Is there an alarm system included? What sort of pump and does it self-test? If not, does the manufacturer’s warranty cover included in the price? Is the system design included in the price also?
  • Are all their installers employed by the company and suitably trained? Ensure that your chosen company employs installers who have been provided adequate on-site training and are instructed to work closely with the site foreman.
  • Do they sub-contract the work? Always ensure that the company that you decide to instruct never sub-contracts any Residential or Domestic fire sprinkler installation projects out to other companys and always use their own staff for all design and installation work .
  • Beware of false promises that a system can run from the mains water supply, especially in retrofits. Make sure that your chosen company will give an accurate appraisal of the water supply at your property and are not afraid of losing work to companies who win work at a cheap price then throw in extras as the job progresses or even claim that the water supply is not adequate once they are on-site!
  • How close is the Fire Sprinkler installer company to the project? Make sure that they don’t send teams of installers all over the country then struggle to keep up with ongoing site issues!



Mist system was a great solution for our renovation needs and them team at RAD have been great. Always communicated clearly and been on hand to discuss over the phone as needed. Would highly recommend!

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.

I have used RAD for the last 10 years for all of my housing developments in need of a sprinkler system. Easy process from start to finish and no issues or problems throughout. Always someone at hand to answer a querie and we have a great working relationship with the team at RAD. Would highly recommend.

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.
