Some Statistics according to Our Government


  •   Fire and Rescue Services in Great Britain attended 212,500 fires in 2013-14, continuing the generally downward trend of the last 10 years. There was a 10% increase on 2012-13, but this previous year had been unusually low due to wet weather conditions.  
  •   The most common time for fires to be reported is in the hour of 8pm-9pm (with 9% of all fires). While only 11% of fires occurred between midnight and early morning (5am), these fires caused one fifth of all deaths in Great Britain in 2013- 14.  
  •   Over two thirds of fire-related deaths occurred in accidental dwelling fires and more than half of the victims were aged 65 years or older.  
  •   The risk of dying in a fire for people aged 80 and over is more than four times higher than average. People aged be- tween 65 and 79 also have a higher than average rate.  
  •   Dwellings with no smoke alarm accounted for 38% of deaths in home fires in Great Britain, and nearly one fifth of deaths occurred where no smoke alarm worked.  
  •   Smokers’ materials (e.g. cigarettes, cigars or pipe tobacco) caused the largest share of deaths in accidental dwelling fires (37%), while cooking appliances are the source of igni- tion in more than half of accidental fires in dwellings.  

How They Work

In Accordance with British Standard 9251:2014 - A fire sprinkler system is designed to operate over a predetermined floor area and needs to be designed by an expert.


Fire sprinkler supply pipes are permanently charged with water from the domestic water main or a Water Tank and Pump Set. Fire sprinklers are fitted to the system of UPVC supply pipes and each is an independent unit and operates only if the fire causes it to do so. Each fire sprinkler is fitted with a small thermal element (bulb) activated by heat from a fire, and set to operate at not less than 30C above ambient temperature, making accidental activation very unlikely other than in a fire condition.In the majority of fires just one sprinkler head is operated which is normally sufficient to deal with the fire.
