So what are Dry Risers and how do they work?

Dry risers are a system of pipe work and valves that runs up through a building.  The system allows fire fighters to easily access water from each individual floor of the building. It consists of a vertical pipe with a water inlet on ground level located on an external wall and outlets known as landing valves, which are usually located in a dry riser cabinet on each floor.  The dry risers are usually located in the fire fighting shaft.

We have two Dry Risers in Anglesey, both of which had been neglected for a long period of time. Initially I was informed that both Dry Risers were in need of fairly major repair work. I contacted Dry Risers Direct and they responded in a professional, helpful manner, without fuss or delay. They completed an initial survey of both Dry Risers and proposed alternate options which would avoid unnecessary expense, extensive repair work, extensive building work and would be completed in time to satisfy the Fire Service. To my and the Directors delight they fulfilled all their promises and today we have two fully functional, air tight and Certified Dry Risers.

To whom it may concern, I have been asked to give a reference for Dry Risers Direct. I would have no hesitation in using again or recommending this company. The were punctual, clean, tidy and pragmatic. There were several challenging issues within our existing building that some other companies were daunted by. Adrian and his team displayed a wealth of experience to accomplish our project and meet stringent building control regulations. I look forward to working with Dry Risers Direct on our next project
