Wet and Dry Risers

Wet and Dry Risers


If you own, manage or reside in a building where any floor is over 18 meters above ground level and below 60 meters in height then the installation and maintenance of a dry riser system is required.

If the building is over 60 meters high then a wet riser system is required.

Wet and Dry risers are used by the Fire Service to provide a readily available means of delivering considerable quantities of water. The choice of wet or dry riser will be dictated by the type of building.

It is important that wet and dry riser systems are regularly serviced and maintained as failure to do so can result not only in failure but potential prosecution.

Artius Property Protection has the support structure and capabilities to successfully maintain and regularly test both wet and dry riser systems.
