Residential Fire Sprinklers
NFS is a leading provider of fire suppression systems for care homes, nursing homes and other shared residence and multiple occupancy buildings. We understand the difficulties you face, and we’ve developed innovative solutions that minimise operational cost without compromising on safety.
When designing and installing any residential sprinkler system, we’ll listen to your requirements and guide you through every step of the process.
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.
“My loft conversion specialist and my building control officer have spent months trying to sort out how to overcome our problems and the job has been at a standstill. In the end, they asked me to look into options and I am so glad I came across your company.
In 15 minutes you have sorted out how to complete our loft conversion and I have learnt more about fire sprinklers by talking to you than all of our builders and council officers put together. Thanks for all your good advice.

“Thanks for delivering on this project so quickly and progressing the work so efficiently. As you know the project was a most urgent requirement for an existing theatre of warfare and our mission has gone extremely well.
Your company’s input has greatly contributed to our success and your senior engineer who worked with us was so attentive and proactive. The Ministry are delighted with the product and are placing orders for a much larger run of the product. Our success will be shared with your company as we continue to work together.”

“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.”
