Sprinkler Water Tank capacities to suit all applications
Water capacity is dependent on a number of factors applicable to individual applications. Capacity levels are determined by the following:
- Hazard classifications – usually the larger the hazard, the greater volume of water is required
- Duration of water supply
- Mains refill capabilities – refill duration limits are outlined in BS EN12845, BS 9251
- Full holding or reduced capacity - reduced capacity may be acceptable where the main refill capabilities are sufficient to make up the water requirement balance within the “time” regulations for specific hazard classifications
- Wet or dry pipe system
- Range between the highest and lowest sprinkler. Sprinkler design standard
Sprinkler Systems were originally developed for the protection of property or equipment, however in recent years they have been used for the purpose of life safety as an aid to the means of escape of personnel. Sprinkler Tanks are mulitfunctional they are designed for fire detection, alarm and suppression of fire.
LPCB sprinkler tanks in a range of capacities
Dewey Waters LPCB tanks range in capacity from 5m3 to 1,300m3. Tanks are manufactured from GRP, as its robust properties are excellent for longevity and durability. They are also constructed to ensure minimal maintenance is required, limiting the necessity to drain down the tank during maintenance work. benefits to GRP water tanks also include: GRP Water tanks Corrosion resistant, GRP Tested High Strength Factor vs Alternatives, Maintenance of GRP, Lightweight Capabilities GRP vs Alternatives, GRP Lower Production, Installation, Maintenance and Transport Cost.
