An inlet breeching at ground level provides the connection to the water supply. The system is
normally dry and is charged by the fire brigade in an emergency. Breeching inlets used have 2
inlet connections complete with 2.5” male instantaneous inlets to BS336 fitted with non-return
valves, 1” drain valve and caps and chains. A 100mm (4”) rising main uses a 2-way inlet
breeching in a vertical or horizontal position.

Dry riser gate/landing valves act as outlets from the riser main. These valves are situated on each
floor of the high rise building and are normally housed in outlet cabinets or outlet architrave and
door which are manufactured to BS5041 part 4. Dry riser gate valves are either flanged PN16,
female or male screwed, outlets to BS336, complete with blank cap and chain, complying with
BS5041 part 2. To the top of riser should be fitted with an air release valve which releases all air
from the riser, as water is pumped in, but closes automatically under pressure of water. A 1” drain
valve can be used at the bottom of the riser if the pipe work goes below the inlet breeching valve,
so the system can be completely drained.
