Wall hydrant type F and type S - advice, installation & maintenance
Wall hydrant type F - for self-help and for the fire department
Equipped with a reel and a dimensionally stable hose, wall hydrants type F are as easy to operate for the layman as a garden hose. Furthermore, fire department pressure hoses can be connected easily and quickly in professional use.
Obligation to fire water transfer points: Due to the required water quantities and the associated large pipe dimensions, direct connection of this type to the drinking water installation is not permitted. For this application, so-called extinguishing water transfer points, e.g. consisting of supply tanks with pressure boosting systems or filling and emptying stations, are connected upstream. This also applies to existing extinguishing systems! (All available from us.)
Wall hydrant for "trained personnel"
A special form of wall hydrant is the one with flat hoses. In principle, these can also be operated by anyone, but require special training in which the personnel are instructed in the special handling of these devices.
Drinking water installation with wall hydrant type S - "S" stands for self-help
Wherever the fire department uses alternative response tactics, the Type S wall hydrant can be used. These devices are used by the layman for initial firefighting of incipient fires. Again, as easy to use as a garden hose, while providing an almost "unlimited" amount of extinguishing water. The advantage of these wall hydrants is that, due to the amount of water required, an additional extinguishing water transfer point is generally not necessary. Direct integration into the drinking water installation is possible. Thus, facilities of this type, in addition to their efficiency, are very economical.
Regulations for "wet" extinguishing systems or for wall hydrants:
- DIN 14462: Fire-fighting water installations - Planning, installation, operation and maintenance of wall hydrant systems as well as systems with above-ground and underground hydrants.
- DIN 1988-600: Technical rules for drinking water installations - Part 600: Drinking water installations in connection with fire extinguishing and fire protection systems
- Consideration of regional or object-specific requirements
Maintenance and testing of wall hydrants: Wall hydrants that are supplied by a "wet" extinguishing water system must be maintained at least once a year by a competent person. In addition, testing by a testing expert must take place every three to six years, depending on the federal state.
