Dry Riser Servicing contracts

We offer highly-competitive dry riser maintenance pricing and can provide you with a fully-managed service where we take care of the dry risers, sprinklers, and fire extinguishers throughout your property.

If you have responsibility for a building or site, then you will most likely have a dry riser that needs servicing. If this is the case, then you should be aware of the legal requirements to get your dry riser serviced periodically.

How Often Should Dry Risers Be Serviced?

Under UK regulations, BS9990:2015 dictates that dry risers need to be wet tested at least once a year, and have a visual inspection conducted every 6 months.

Professional UK Dry Riser Testing

Dry Riser Testing isn’t simply a matter of meeting with the UK dry riser regulations in the U.K, and it is also an essential health and safety consideration for both residential and commercial premises.

Due to the materials used, dry risers can often fall victim to thieves who take what they can and sell the parts for money. If this happens, the dry risers will not function adequately in the event of a fire.

How often do you perform a visual inspection of your dry risers?

The legal requirements dictate that at least once every 6 months your dry risers need to be inspected. The first of these checks is simply a visual inspection; the second is a full wet-test at pressure to ensure the dry riser requirement functions properly under pressure.

We offer service agreements for commercial dry riser testing – ask us today for customised pricing.
