  Dry and Wet Risers  
  AJS have extensive experience of Testing & Certifying Fire Extinguishers & Fire Blankets.  
AJS Ltd offer a complete repairs, maintenance and testing service of the following systems:  
Wet Risers
Dry Risers
  Dry & wet rising mains  
  Hose reel systems  
  Sprinkler systems  
The methods we use for testing these systems comply with the relevant requirements of BS 9990, 2006, BS5306 Part 1 and Sprinklers BS EN 12845 2004 and BS EN 6700 1-1 1995. AJS Ltd recommends that systems should be tested every 6 months with a full pressure test annually. During the test we visually inspect all components of the entire system from roof to ground level together with a connection made to a pressurised water supply at the inlet.

Whilst this test is being carried out our engineer will again check the entire system for any sign of leaks or damage. Any excessive loss in pressure while the test is in progress will be deemed as a fail. If we do not find any leaks or faults we de-pressurize and drain the system and issue a certificate. For wet risers there are additional checks made on cleanliness of storage tanks, booster pumps and associated mechanical and electrical equipment. Should the risers fail to work when required by the fire service
the penalties are potentially severe.

Unfortunately the risers and hose reels are prone to neglect and possible vandalism
and more frequent inspections should be considered. All of our operatives are trained and experienced to meet the full requirements of the British Standards Regulations. They carry a large range of spares on their vehicles and are therefore able to eliminate most defects while on site that could render your installation inoperable.
