It is a requirement that all buildings over 18 metres high are to have a Dry Riser system installed. If the building were to be over 50 metres then a wet riser system would need to be fitted.

All systems are to be designed, installed, commissioned and certificated to BS EN 9990:2015.

Dry Risers are a vital piece of fire protection equipment for buildings. They are intended mainly for the use of the Fire Brigade Service in the event of a fire. A Dry Riser allows the fire service to connect their pumps to the ground floor inlet and pump water to the various outlet landing valves at each level of the building.

A Dry Riser allows the fire service to connect their pumps to the ground floor inlet and pump water to the various outlet landing valves at each level of the building.

The riser is left in a dry condition when not in use, hence the term 'Dry Riser'.

The pipe work can be installed on the vertical, up or down the building, or on the horizontal in the cases of many of the new hospitals around the UK.
