Dry Riser Testing

A Dry Riser is part of a fire suppression system in a building. It consists of a dry pipe which runs vertically / horizontally throughout a building with outlets on each floor; the main inlet is normally found on the ground floor where Firefighters can access.

Under BS 9990/2006 Property owners are obliged for dry risers to be tested annually.

How we test dry risers?

After initial visual inspection our tests are completed by testing the riser with pressurised water to 10 bars measuring at the inlet for 15 plus minutes – if there is a loss in pressure greater than 0.5 bar then it is a failed test.

The dry riser is then drained completely.
