Fire Brigade Inlets
The water feed from the Fire Service pump is routed to the Dry Riser system by means of an inlet breeching which is installed at Fire Brigade level on the outside of a building.
Ideally the inlet breeching should be positioned as close as possible to the rising main in order to minimise pressure loss- a common problem when dealing with High Rise buildings.
Consideration for the Fire Fighter’s safety should be paramount when deciding on an installation position for the inlet breeching. Ideally it should be in an easily accessed location such as along a service road large enough for vehicular access and away from fallen debris or hazardous obstructions.
Pneucons offer a comprehensive range of dry riser inlet breechings and they are available as either a single, 2-way , 3-Way or 4-way pumping in breeching in various combination of metals describes below.
