Fire hydrant system is a safety measure or emergency equipment required in buildings that comprises a series of components that when assembled together provide a source of water to assist fire.
A fire hydrant is an active fire protection measure, and a source of water provided in most urban, suburban and rural areas with municipal water service to enable firefighters to tap into the municipal water supply to assist in extinguishing a fire. It works effectively in improving the firefighting capacity of a place where it is installed. Apart from firefighting purpose, these hydrated systems are also used in several other applications such as water transfer, irrigation etc.
Such systems fight with the fire using well designed water distribution system that includes water tank and fire pumps. It also has distributed piping system which is connected all over the building using the pipes, nozzles and hydrants. The main purpose of using fire hydrant system is to give best possible source of water to each corner of the building. It helps in protecting the building by simply making control on fire during an emergency.

Advantages of Fire Hydrant System
Fire hydrant system is an effective means of extinguishing the fire in the building that can result to heavy devastation.
The system has the ability to fight the fire from the long distance due to its large piping system.
As it covers each point of the building, so it has more penetration capability as compared to other fire protection systems. In simply words, high accessibility is its main advantage.
Hydrant valves are placed at different places throughout the building, leaving no corner in the premises unprotected.
In fire hydrant system, large quantity of water is pumped out from the water tank with such a force and speed so that it can reach to the fire affected area. The capacity of these water tanks depends on the height and floor area of building like residential, commercial or industrial, and nature of hazard as well.
Such type of safety measure and water supply equipment is an essential requirement in some buildings where the chances of getting fire is higher. When the components are combined together with the source of water, it becomes a weapon to fight with the fire. The performance of a hydrant system completely depends on the quality and efficiency of the components used to design the system.
This system requires inspections and tests at the regular interval of time to determine that the system is in a proper state and is working properly. At Altitude Group, a team of engineers will inspect and survey the installation in the building to make sure the accurate operation of the system.
