Stories and statistics reported in the press, have resulted in an increasing number of domestic fire sprinkler installations, as people realise the huge advantages of these systems. There have been many instances where disasters have been avoided purely because a single spray head was activated and went into action. Often, sprinkler systems are implemented when a property is subject to a change of use from domestic to commercial and vice versa.
We carry out all of our sprinkler installation projects without subcontracting, and are fully certified to BS 9251:2014 standards. Our skilled and qualified engineers can complete installations in 2 – 3 days and in almost all cases we are able to install the pipe work above the ceiling. All that is visible is a small, flat white plate of 60mm diameter, making the installation totally unobtrusive. This enables us to provide highly functional fire prevention systems without compromising design interiors.

Here are some more examples of our Domestic Sprinkler installations.
La Sagesse Development
La Sagesse is a unique development of stunning 5 bedroom town houses by David Wilson Homes. They are a mix of renovated and new build, bespoke four storey properties located within a leafy suburb in the Jesmond area of Newcastle Upon Tyne, most of which sold within hours of their release onto the market.
The houses demonstrate some of the highest standards of design and construction in the industry, and David Wilson Homes are a multi award winning company thanks to their attractive and functional properties. In fact they are recipients of the exclusive ‘5 Star Housebuilder Award’ presented by the Homebuilders Federation, making them the official highest quality national housebuilder. They have won this award, given to Barratt Developments Plc Group brands, year on year due to customer recommendation. It was stated by the judges presenting the latest award, that the David Wilson Homes company is recognised as an “outstanding all-rounder, showing its prowess in the fields of zero carbon, regeneration, design and landscaping.”
This developer ensures that the ultimate in state of the art technology is incorporated within their structures, and this includes safety and fire prevention systems. Fire Logistics installed sprinkler systems into several of these houses, as the local fire service could not be guaranteed access to them in the event of a fire. In addition to giving peace of mind, each reliable, high quality sprinkler system installation cost less than 1% of the house value.
Domestic & Residential Sprinkler Systems, Fire Damage Limitation
Glenridding House in the Lake District, is listed as ‘Darwin’s lakeshore Retreat’, with exquisite Regency themed décor, featuring things like Victorian four poster beds, mango wood furniture, window shutters and oak floors. This luxurious structure situated in its own grounds overlooking Ullswater, has had sprinklers installed by us to provide a means of escape, in the event of a fire, and to protect and preserve this precious building.
Durham market Square
We installed sprinkler systems in a number of apartments located above shops in Durham market square. Again, the sprinklers were required to provide a means of escape and to guard against the potential devastation by fire of these historic constructions. Our expertise ensures that each customer receives a tailored sprinkler system solution.
Competitively Priced Fire Protection, Sprinkler System Installation, Servicing & Maintenance
It is a fact that in buildings fully protected by properly maintained sprinklers over a 10 year period:
- 99% of fires were controlled by sprinklers alone
- 60% of fires were controlled by the spray from no more than 4 sprinklers
A spokesperson for the Chief Fire Officers’ Association (CFOA), stated that “Residential sprinklers are the equivalent of having a firefighter on stand-by in your home. They can put out a fire before the fire service arrives.”
