Dry Risers for Fire Fighting

Dry Risers Factsheet

Dry Risers are systems installed into buildings for fire fighting purposes by trained personnel. This system of dry pipework is charged by fire fighters with water from their pumps to get water where they need it as quickly as possible in the building. They won’t spend time dragging heavy hoses around which will also break fire compartment barriers.
