Durcan Services provides an industry qualified design team who will put together a full design specification and give accurate installation costs. The information for the specification can either be gathered from scale drawings, or a free of charge full-site survey can be carried out by our engineers.
We use our own highly trained mechanical engineers to provide the best possible service ensuring efficient installation, top quality workmanship and highly competitive prices. All our site personnel are accredited to the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) which includes training and instruction in basic and advanced site skills as well as encompassing Health and Safety awareness, as detailed within the CSCS Scheme Booklet. Engineers also hold licenses for IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) and PASMA (Prefabricated Access Suppliers and Manufacturers association).
Following each installation a full ‘wet test’ of the system is undertaken in accordance with BS9990 guidelines and certification is awarded on successful completion of that test. All installation work comes with a full 12 month warranty guarantee so you can have complete confidence in your system. The local fire services must be consulted to ascertain exact requirements before the installation of dry riser systems.
Dry Riser Installation -
Dry Risers are comprised of vertical mains which are fitted into staircase enclosures or other suitable locations, with outlets installed at ground level to enable the fire servicves to connect into the water supply. Dry Riser mains present a readily available means of delivery substantial quantities of water in order to extinguish or prevent the spread of fire. They are intended for use by the fire service or trained personnel.
Wet Riser Installation -
Wet Risers are a vital piece of fire protection equipment for buildings. They are intended mainly for the use of the Fire Brigade Service and allows them to connect their hoses to the outlet landing valves. The water supply for these systems would predominately be via a pumped water supply independent to each building or plot. There would also be a Fire Brigade inlet at the ground floor to enable the Brigade to connect their pumps to, to ensure the supply of water is not exhausted. At each level there would be a landing valve as the water pressure at these valves can be over 10 bar, these valves would be pressure regulated at around 8 bar at the outlet, to ensure a safe working pressure. The riser is left in a wet pressurised condition when not in use, hence the term 'Wet Riser'.
We at Durcan Services pride ourselves in knowing that we do not sub-contract labour and we install to the highest quality, delivering the product on time and competitively.
