Sprinkler System Design & Installation Projects

Whilst all fire safety sprinkler specialists use the same specification of equipment, the design method used can vary considerably.

At Fire Logistics Ltd we draw upon our vast bank of experience and expertise to analyse each situation. We can offer several different designs to deal with the fire hazard in a particular situation, all of which are regulation compliant. The client is then free to evaluate each and, with our help, select the option which provides the optimum solution.

Free Fire Sprinkler System Consultation

Sprinkler System Design & InstallationWe offer an advice and guidance service for future sprinkler / fire protection installations. We can forecast the cost planned of fire protection systems up to 2 years in advance.

We are often asked for to give advice on technical issues associated with fire sprinkler installations and also to advise if the project is feasible. Considering modifications such as changes to the current water supplies means that numerous permutations can be produced for management to review.

In most situations, this analysis and advice is not contingent on us getting the job – you are not obliged to involve us in the project. For a highly detailed appraisal we will need to recover costs, but normally we are able to offer this as a free consultancy service.
