Residential Sprinkler Systems
The term residential refers to multi-occupancy properties with shared living spaces and shared access. These include care homes, nursing homes and also student housing.
Because of the greater peace of mind fire sprinklers provide in these applications, more and more landlords are modifying their properties with sprinklers to protect vulnerable residents.
In Scotland legislation already demands all new care homes have sprinklers installed.
Greater fire protection at no extra cost
Installing a sprinkler system into a care home or HMO can actually save money as well as lives.
Care home bedroom doors must have closers fitted. However if sprinklers are installed, Building Regulations state door closers aren’t required.
The cost of a closer is roughly the same as the cost of a pipe and sprinkler head to same room (£65).
But no closer also means no complex automatic door retainers. Which means an even greater reduction in the cost of fire protection per room.

“Thanks for taking the time to take my call the other day to discuss our proposed installation. We are 4 to 6 weeks away form needing sprinklers and we will be asking your company to do the work especially with your in-house innovations like the triangular tanks you sell exclusively for fitting into roof eaves in loft conversions.”
