Automatic Fire Sprinkler System Specifications

The Automatic Fire Sprinkler Systems we design and install are proven to protect residential buildings and occupants from damage.

Automatic Fire Suppression Systems (AFSS) are divided into categories according to the size and usage of the building.

Using only approved materials and qualified engineers, we design and install all of our systems to BS9251:2021, the UK's leading standard for residential and domestic fire sprinkler systems. This standard is crucial in ensuring that fire suppression systems are designed and installed to provide maximum protection.

Our expertise at Base Fire Sprinklers is anchored in over 30 years of experience, blending deep knowledge with cutting-edge technology. We specialise in tailored solutions, meeting the unique requirements of projects such as homes, care homes, and student accommodations.
