Fire Hydrant Systems

The Fire and Rescue Service needs an instant and localised water supply to fight fire, and private fire hydrants provide exactly the same. They are a valuable asset in the fight against fire and a necessary item of firefighting equipment.

In case a number of fire hydrants or wet fire mains are required because of the large area of the premises to be covered, the mains that are supplied by these systems should be in the form of a ring main, in order to form a complete circuit of the site.

Our systems are normally supplied by valve connections from the local water authority mains network. However, in case, the suitable pressures and/or flows cannot be met, NFA can install dedicated water supplies in the form of fire pumps and water storage.

Designed using the guidance and recommendations of NFPA /BS 9990:2006 /National Building Code of India, NFA fire hydrant systems are suitable for use by your Fire and Rescue Service with IS 5290(Indian Standard) Type 2 hydrants fitted in valve pits covered with suitably designed and marked covers, along with safety signs fitted adjacent to each location.

For facilities having their own on-site fire brigades, using American style connections, NFA can provide systems, utilizing surface mounted pillar hydrants. As you would expect, these are supplied and installed in accordance with the latest NFPA and Factory Mutual Global rules.
