Domestic Sprinkler System Information for Architects and Developers
Architects and developers used to have limited interaction with a domestic sprinkler system company throughout the design and building phases. Fire sprinklers are occasionally overlooked during these stages, even though they are increasingly being put in structures such as hostels, care homes, and high-rise complexes around the UK, particularly in Wales.
The inquiry may be triggered by the inability to meet some of the Building Regulations Approved Document B requirements. Such issues are frequently identified late in the construction process. Residential fire sprinkler systems, according to Building Control Officers, will fix the problem
The sprinkler heads could be visually invasive, which is a key worry for an architect or developer. When concealed residential fire sprinkler heads are used, this is never the case. Sprinklers are placed in line with downlights and other things fixed in the ceiling whenever possible.
What are Common Problems an Architect or Developer May Face?
Installing a domestic sprinkler system would help architects and developers all across the UK handle a slew of issues. These are some examples:
- Limited access for a fire tender when a property is situated more than 45 metres from road curt-ledge.
- Open stairway to an open plan ground floor area from a room on the 2nd floor of that property.
- A lack of an alternative means of escape where an occupied space is more than 7.5M high.
- Fire compartmentalisation between different purpose groups for example flats above commercial premises.
- Travel from inner rooms passing through kitchens.
