INSTALLATION OF FIRE HYDRANT SYSTEMS

At SafetyMax we install underground or aerial hydrant networks, which are classified as wet column (permanent water load), dry column (without water load) and chest (buried). Hydrant installations will have supply cabinets with the necessary accessories for their use (hoses, lances and other elements) and may also have water or foam monitors for direct attack.

The external network of hydrants is a Fire Protection system for the exterior of the building, which helps to fight the fire and at the same time allows the cooling of the buildings surrounding the one that is burning, thus preventing the spread of the fire.

What are fire hydrant systems?

Hydrants are equipment that discharge abundant water flow and require a certain pressure that the water network hardly guarantees. For this reason, in many industries it is necessary to install a water supply system. It is a connection to the water distribution network, used by the firefighting service to directly attack the fire or to supply the firefighting vehicle equipped with pumping equipment.

These systems must be located in easily accessible places, outside spaces intended for the circulation and parking of vehicles and duly signposted. As specialists in Fire Protection, from SafetyMax we agree on the layout and we coordinate with the civil works trying to make the installation effective and permanent.

The concept of hydrants has its origin in the 17th century, since the professional firefighting services of that time used authentic water networks with access points to deal with fires, thus replacing the extinguishing work carried out by chains of people with "bucket in hand", to later move on to the model of fire trucks with hand pumps.

A hydrant is a fixed extinguishing system designed to carry the extinguishing agent (water or foam) in large quantities to any OUTSIDE point (of the risk to be protected) and will normally be handled by specialized fire-fighting personnel. On the other hand, it will be very useful to professional firefighting bodies since it facilitates the filling of the water tanks that they use in the extinction.

They are designed to protect the entire structure.

They are accompanied by booths with auxiliary materials for handling.

These can be of the following types:

• Wet Column (The water reaches the hydrant valve).
• Dry Column (valve in the lower part buried, ideal in frosty places)
• Chest

They consist of:

• 2 sockets of Ø 70 mm and one of Ø 100 mm (Dry or wet column)
• 1 or 2 Ø 70 mm sockets (Valve)

In its concern for having a society with increasingly safer buildings and facilities, contributes its long experience and good work to the improvement and maximum efficiency of the facilities and maintenance it carries out, allowing the fire brigades and intervention brigades to have the necessary means to make their work easier.

BASIC PRINCIPLES

Fixed extinguishing systems by means of fire hydrants are based on extinguishing by water or foam and the system is mainly based on; a network of pipes with its supply and the different hydrant intakes conveniently distributed based on the risk to be protected and meeting minimum regulatory requirements, ensuring a continuous flow of water that will be used for firefighting.

As far as design is concerned, it is important to take into account the measurements of real routes (horizontal measurement) to any hydrant. In addition, it should be noted that special attention must be paid to the facades, always highlighting the main one for obvious reasons of accessibility to professional firefighting services. Among others, they will be accessible and will be located outside traffic lanes, parking of any kind and always correctly signposted for correct viewing in the shortest time, given that in critical situations, intervention times play a vital role, to reduce damage, associates.

On the other hand, a ring distribution network with sectorised valves will be essential to ensure their operation even when faults occur, allowing in this case to leave only partial sections of the network without service, allowing the rest to be protected of the installation. All of this without forgetting the chapter on supports both in aerial and underground networks, which make it possible to withstand the typical mechanical stresses of this type of installation.

Finally, it is important to highlight the role played by the auxiliary hydrant supply booths, which must be correctly located with full accessibility and visibility, in addition to all its elements in a correct state of use and accessibility to the equipment they contain, without elements that prevent its rapid opening.

In any fire protection system, their reliability is essential and for this, SafetyMax has both human and technical resources based on the experience of thousands of installations carried out in order to guarantee optimum design, installation and maintenance for perfect operation in case of fire.
