What Steps are Involved in the Fire Sprinkler System Process?

An automatic fire sprinkler system is a great piece of apparatus to have installed on your premises. A lot of time, effort and thought goes into ensuring that your fire sprinklers are placed in the most suitable location, allowing them to work optimally for years to come. Each building will have a different water supply and certain dimensions that need to be taken into consideration. Luckily, there are qualified experts available who can install the very best fire or water mist system to protect your property and its inhabitants.

Our team here at RAD Fire Sprinklers can design an exemplary sprinkler system or high-pressure mist system that adheres to both your building’s dimensions and existing fire safety regulations. We can also install the system into your property and ensure that it is working up to standard, with visible or concealed sprinkler heads to fit in with your interiors. There are various steps involved to make sure that your fire sprinkler system is working effectively, making it one of the most successful fire supersession systems to install into your property.



Designing a residential fire sprinkler system can vary from building to building, such as small homes and high-rise buildings. Designers will consider your ceiling plan, in particular, to ensure no light fixtures or other ceiling amenities are hindered, and that the sprinklers will be able to work optimally. Your water supply, pressure and possible hazards and obstructions will also be considered before your sprinkler heads, systems and pipes are chosen. Sprinkler heads are usually positioned as symmetrically as possible, as long as they are within the design parameters.

Our team at RAD Fire Sprinklers will usually require AutoCAD files to help us overlay the drawings we have designed. We utilise an industry-standard sprinkler design software pack and produce a full specification. You can find out more about our design process here.



Once your automatic sprinkler system or water mist system has been designed and your sprinkler heads have been chosen, your brand-new system can be installed into your property. Once you have chosen a qualified, experienced team of professionals to install your system, they will check to see if your water pressure is good enough to support the sprinklers. The system will then be installed in the best place for the most direct route to your water supply.

We will always work to make sure that your piping is concealed in your walls, making the system as discreet as possible in your property. If you’ve made the decision to install a fire sprinkler system into your domestic property, you might want to specify concealed sprinkler heads to fit in better with your interior decor. We will determine which sprinkler heads will work best in your property, and concealed sprinkler heads work excellently in homes and residential properties such as care homes. 

Once installed and pressurised, your system will then be tested to ensure that it is working to the best of its abilities, leaving you with a system that can keep your property safe for years to come. However, it is recommended that you have your fire sprinkler system or mist sprinkler system is checked at least once a year…


Maintenance of your Fire Sprinkler System

Keeping your sprinkler system and sprinkler heads routinely checked can not only adhere to fire regulations and guidelines, but can keep your property and all of its inhabitants safe for years to come in the future. Having your system maintained can also check for anything that is hindering your system from working effectively. Sometimes, when individuals decorate their homes, paint or even light fixtures can stop the sprinkler heads from activating, leading to a lack of water being dispensed. When you get your sprinkler systems and sprinkler heads maintained, make sure that a qualified legal professional with 3rd party accreditation is checking them over.

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.

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.
