Residential Sprinkler Protection – Important Advice to Protect your Home

The data is staggering. Three-quarters of fire-related deaths occur in houses and flats. Many of these homes include thousands of pounds worth of entertainment equipment, high-end furniture and even swimming pools and gyms, but very few have received investment into a proper and professional fire suppression system. Although the law requires new build homes to feature hard-wired fire alarms, most homes in the UK are not legally required to have a residential sprinkler system installed.

The exception is Wales as shown below:

Data correct as of 2018

As you can see, the legal requirements for fire sprinkler systems in England and Northern Ireland are very low. We can only hope that property owners take on the responsibility of installing a proper residential fire protection sprinkler system because it’s the right thing to do to protect lives and safeguard property.

Step One: Picking The Right Partner

We’re experienced in working alongside homeowners, developers, architects, consultants and a range of other interested parties when coming up with the right plan for a particular property.

Just thinking about the first steps to install a residential sprinkler system can be really daunting. If you need someone to talk about building regulations or work with your water supplier/local authority, we’re here to help!

Accreditation Is Key

We work very hard to obtain and maintain our accreditation, and with this comes a need to stay up to date with the latest rules, standards and technologies. We’re registered with the FIRAS and IFC 3rd party certification scheme and are members of the Residential Fire Sprinkler Association (RSA), the Fire Protection Association (FPA) and the National Fire Sprinkler Network (NFSN).

We have a duty to ensure that our customers receive the best service and protection possible. This is something we take very seriously when completing the planning, supply and installation phases of a domestic sprinkler system installation.

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.
