Triangle Fire Systems was asked by Galliford Try Partnerships to find a value engineered design to protect the 19 storey high rise at Elmgrove Point. The solution found was to have the flats on each floor being supplied from a valve group located in the service riser cupboard of each floor.
The flow switch on each floor, indicates the floor location of an actuated sprinkler head, on the fire sprinkler alarm panel in the ground floor foyer .The boosted domestic cold water supply was used to supply the required water. The advantage of this is that it complies with BS9251 and keeps installation and servicing cost down.
All flats were fitted with concealed fire sprinkler heads.
