From the first commercial installed system in the Theatre Royal in Drury Lane in 1812 by the building designer William Congreave, through to today, the principles of getting water quickly onto a fire within that 207 year period have not changed a great deal. However, Sprinklers still remain one of, if not the most effective and reliable way of controlling and/or suppressing a fire. Again, this can only be true of Systems which have been designed, Installed and are serviced and Maintained to the correct standard for which the system was designed and installed. It is also critical that the systems are connected to other Fire safety equipment such as fire alarm systems, automated plant shut down valves, and that these are also serviced and maintained correctly as this can have a greater bearing on the overall effectiveness of the building Fire Strategy.
EDS Fire Protection Ltd have spent years understanding Sprinkler systems and the integration with electronic interfaces and are continually striving to keep up to date with current trends and legislative changes so as to be able to offer sound advise to all of our clients.
