Granville Road Project Details

  • Granville Road, Sevenoaks
  • 7 apartments complex
  • Woodland location
  • Sprinkler system
  • Open plan design
  • 3 weeks on site

RAD Fire Sprinklers worked with the developers of this unique project of seven woodland apartments.

Built to a very high spec with a beautiful finish, a sprinkler system was required for each, to allow the open plan design.

Sprinkler System

The mains sprinkler system was chosen over the mist system for this project, because there was adequate storage for a water tank. Mist would have been uneconomical in this development.

The system was connected to a new mains supply, with a valve set to each apartment using Rapidrop sprinklers protection.

Open plan, restricted fire rescue access

Building regulations would require walls to be built to meet fire standards, but a sprinkler system allowed the open plan-designed homes to be protected in the event of a fire.

Being built in a woodland setting also meant that in the event of a fire, a fire engine would not be able to access the rear of the homes very easily, so a sprinkler system was a sensible choice and one that supports the building regulations fire aspect.

Blended in

Aesthetics were important to the design of the apartments and so we worked together with the developer, who we’ve previously worked with many times, to ensure the one or two sprinkler heads fitted in each room, became an invisible part of the design.


Each differently designed home required a different sprinkler system layout to work with the lighting layout within each apartment.
One of the challenges which is fairly common with new builds is space – finding room in the cavities to fit the necessary pipes and water storage tank.

We were on site for three weeks, working with other trades to install the system, liaising with them on how pipes, electrical wiring and the sprinkler system would be fitted alongside one another.

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.

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.
