Why Do You Need Dry Risers?
Your building needs fire protection. When do you need one? There is a need to install a functioning and non-automatic fire-fighting system in buildings, especially tall ones. The other one is the wet riser system.
This is a rising main composed of a vertical pipe that has an inlet box that runs on the outside of the building and dry riser outlets which are placed on every floor in the building. With this system in place, firefighters would find it easier to fight fire in buildings that have floors above eighteen meters to the ground and have about six to seventeen stories.
The riser would relieve firefighters the stress of dragging a hose from their service truck up the stairs to get to a floor in the building. This would help save time and above all the lives of many.
Before you go about installing one in your building, you should know that there are regulations that guide the design and installation of a dry riser. We have discussed some of these regulations below.
We Offer Full Testing
We offer maintenance and testing on;
- Breeching inlet
- Landing valves
- Dry Riser signs
- Dry Riser doors
- Inlet sizes and regulations
Regulations for a Dry Riser System
BS9990:2015 gives the recommendation and guidelines for the design, installation, and maintenance of a non-automatic and effective fire-fighting system in a building. From fire safety to sprinkler systems we can help.
It is a legal requirement for all buildings with a fire-fighting system to perform in-depth servicing and maintenance annually. The annual test ensures an operating pressure of twelve-bar. The maintenance would also include a visual test of the dry riser.
The regulations ensure legal compliance with certain requirements and efficient use of the system. There are also rules that should be followed when the installation is gone. For example, you will need the correct cabinet installed.
Maintenance and Testing
UK Fire crews understand the dry riser’s layout, function and how they operate. They also have knowledge of any risk involved.
If a building that’s fitted with a riser cupboard or dry riser is referred to as a special or specific special risk (PRM/SSRI); then, detailed information on the riser’s size, location and performance limits needs to be noted down in any risk assessment.

Wet Riser Installation
At Dry Riser Solutions, we are Wet Riser installation and design experts. We collaborate with M&E contractors to fit and test wet riser drains, Isolation valves, PRVs and of course the Main riser pipework.
- A test riser must be installed by an installation expert along side the wet riser. Then, this is used for the evacuation of water from the wet riser – during a flow test.
- Your wet Riser System is installed with Landing Valves. These locations are chosen where they will be positioned on each floor. A wet Riser can be installed up to and over 50m. The wet riser installation system is designed to provide high pressure flow at the upper floors.
- PRVs are also installed on every floor of the building. Why? In the event of an emergency this makes sure that the required optimum pressure is delivered on each floor.
Our dry riser will work with you to supply and install the pipework, test drain, PRVs and connecting to the pump ready for commissioning.
What is the pressure required in wet riser?
It is 4 BAR. Your wet riser supply system should be able to handle a minimum running pressure at the rooftop outlet of 4 bar at a flow rate of 22.7l/s. However, there is a maximum pressure required in a wet riser. The maximum that is driving pressure allowed with just one outlet in operation is 5 bar.
Dry Riser Installation Cost
The installation cost will depend on the work required for the building that needs the installation. However, we will provide the best cost possible for your business.
