Other Services

As well as our core services of fire sprinkler system design, installation and maintenance, and fire detection & monitoring, we also offer MDPE Fusion Welding and Hydrant Testing.

Fire Hydrant Testing

It is crucial to regularly maintain and inspect fire hydrants to ensure that the fire brigade has the necessary equipment in optimal condition to save lives during a fire effectively. British Standards and Building Regulations, particularly BS9990;2015, regulate the servicing, installation and maintenance of privately owned fire hydrants. Underground fire hydrants should undergo regular checks and occasional maintenance by qualified contractors to ensure they function correctly.

Meeting the legal requirement for inspecting and servicing privately owned fire hydrants involves hiring a specialized contractor skilled in testing, design, installation and maintenance. Our team of professional engineers, with extensive experience and conducting numerous services annually, is well-prepared with a wide range of spare parts for immediate repairs when required.

We provide comprehensive hydrant servicing that includes the mandatory annual Pressure Testing and Flow Test as per BS9990;2015 guidelines to ensure your fire hydrants conform to regulatory standards and are prepared for emergency use.

MDPE Fusion Welding

MDPE Fusion Welding

MDPE (Medium Density Polyethylene) fusion welding offers several significant benefits for fire sprinkler pipes and systems, making it a preferred choice for modern fire suppression systems.

By leveraging the benefits of MDPE fusion welding, fire sprinkler systems can achieve enhanced reliability, durability, and efficiency, making them an effective solution for protecting lives and property from the risk of fire.

Some of the key advantages are:

Leak-Proof Joints

The fusion welding process creates a seamless and homogeneous joint between the pipes or between pipes and fittings. This eliminates potential leak points, ensuring a highly reliable delivery system for the fire suppression agent.

MDPE is inherently resistant to corrosion, both from chemicals and environmental factors. This reduces the risk of pipe degradation over time, maintaining the integrity and effectiveness of the fire sprinkler system.

MDPE pipes have a degree of flexibility, which allows them to absorb shocks and stresses without cracking. This durability is particularly beneficial in environments where ground movement or building shifts might occur.

The combination of leak-proof joints, corrosion resistance, and material durability contributes to the long service life of MDPE-based fire sprinkler systems. This reduces the need for frequent replacements and maintenance, offering cost savings over the system’s lifespan.

Fusion welding of MDPE is a relatively quick and straightforward process that requires fewer mechanical fittings and less labor compared to traditional piping systems. This can lead to lower installation costs.

MDPE’s resistance to a wide range of chemicals ensures that the piping won’t degrade or weaken when exposed to various substances, which is particularly important in industrial settings where chemicals might be present.

MDPE is designed to withstand extreme temperatures and UV exposure without deteriorating, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor fire sprinkler systems.

The seamless joints produced by fusion welding eliminate the potential for leaks of fire suppression agents, ensuring that the fire sprinkler system operates effectively when needed, thus enhancing the overall safety of the property and its occupants.
