Hydrant & Hose Reel Supply, Maintenance & Inspection
A SAFE, EFFICIENT AND EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVE TO FIRE EXTINGUISHERS
Sometimes during a fire risk assessment, the results can show that buildings need access to fire hydrants or hose reels. These can be in addition to fire extinguishers or as an alternative.
The reason for hoses and hydrants often being requested is access to a controlled water supply to enable the suppression of Class A fires. At Thor Fire Ltd we have a huge range of fire hoses, fire reels, pipes and hydrants all designed with safety in mind. We fine the best solution for your property and offer full supply, installation and maintenance.
Inspection And Maintenance
Ensuring your existing fire hydrants or hose reels are inspected and tested regularly is a legal requirement. Equipment should be checked once a year by a fully qualified engineer and at Thor Fire Ltd, our engineers are qualified as recognised by BAFE as satisfying the BS5306-3.2017 Annex 1.
This means that our engineers are competent to provide services that include:
Sourcing (the correct hydrants, hoses or pipes for your building)
Commissioning (on-site checks to ensure hoses and hydrants are fit for purpose prior to installation)
Siting (correct positioning and installation of fire equipment in your building)
Maintenance/Servicing (regular checks to ensure fire hydrants and water hose reels are in efficient working order and ready to use in the event of fire).
We are able to supply and install both fixed hoses and swinging hoses.
Both types of fire hose provide effective fire-fighting facilities using a continuous supply of water from a mains connection. If connected and installed correctly (and checked regularly) a hose reel can provide immediate water flow, even when the hose is not fully extended.
In the UK most fire hydrants are placed underground and are used by the fire service to access a mains supply of water easily and effectively.
