sprinkler systems and the law businesses

Some useful tips if you instruct a company to install a domestic fire sprinkler system

Make sure you use a local company: sometimes it is tempting to instruct a company which is based on the other side of the country to install the system just because their price is cheaper than a local company. This is never a good idea because their backup service is never going to be as good as a local company and the servicing cost will most likely be more expensive as well.

Always use a fully accredited company. Either LPCB or FIRAS accreditation is essential.

Systems connected to the mains water supply are cheaper than storage-based fire sprinkler systems. Often a company will tell a customer that their existing mains water supply is adequate in order to get the job based on a cheap price then later demand more money for a storage-based system once they are on-site to commence the installation and actually test the water supply. Don’t get talked into having a system connected to the mains water supply until the fire sprinkler company has tested the dynamic pressure of the water supply to the property. A fire sprinkler system can seldom be run through a standard domestic water meter.

Always make sure that the fire sprinkler installation company that you choose is well established and that it specialises in domestic or residential fire sprinkler systems. The industry is unregulated and there are many companies that claim to have the experience. Always ask for references from other customers in your area.

Never allow a company to install a storage-based system if they don’t guarantee that the pump will be monitored automatically by ‘turning over’ every month. There are many companies which say this is not necessary. However, there is not a single pump manufacturer who would recommend that their pumps remain idle indefinitely.

  • Find a local, well-established company
  • Check their accreditation is FIRAS or LPCB
  • Be prepared for a storage-based system rather than a mains-powered system
  • Fire pumps must be always be automatically monitored

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.

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.
