Wet Risers & Dry Risers
In tall buildings, wet risers and dry risers are used to move water up through the floors as an emergency source for the fire brigade. Here at Asco, we provide maintenance and repairs for these systems, as well as testing, to ensure they’re fully operational should they be required.
Wet risers keep a constant flow of water at all times and are used for buildings which stand at a height of over 50 metres. This is to ensure that emergency services have access to water immediately on higher levels without needing to wait for it to be transported upwards.
When a building has a height of over 18 metres, a dry riser system can be used. This system allows emergency services to pump water into the pipelines to help tackle a fire on floors higher up.
With dedicated engineers operating across Duns, Ardrossan, Forfar, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Midlothian – as well as covering the whole of Scotland – you can count on our expertise to keep your riser system maintained.
From repairs to testing, if you have a wet or dry riser, get in touch with our team today. We are always happy to discuss your requirements, simply call or complete our quick quote form detailing your enquiry.
