Our goal is always to provide the fire protection that puts the safety of your residents first.
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.
“Thank you for your quotation of £15,800 for the apartments. We had another quote from a company in Scotland which was £73,000 so we expect our client will be selecting you for this small project!”

“Thanks for helping me out with our project. We got our plumber to install sprinklers but when he realised that he had no qualifications to support his claim that the sprinklers would work the building control officer refused to accept his installation. This is probably why we cannot get hold of him and he will not answer our calls or letters. As discussed we will need you to replace the sprinklers and pipe and start again.”

Your team completed their first fix install yesterday evening and all seems in good order. I was very happy with your team leader Mark, who was both very professional as well as polite, which is always a good combination to have on any site.
Many thanks – Kerim
