Domestic Sprinkler System Information for Architects and Developers

Installation of Fire Sprinkler HeadsArchitects 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.

If any of these challenges are harming your project, our experts can give and advise you on a variety of solutions. RAD is a third-party accredited company that specialises solely in the design, installation, and maintenance of domestic and residential fire sprinkler systems. Our knowledge and experience in this industry are unparalleled.

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.

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.
