Fire Protection Piping Systems

Fire Protection Pipe

A fire protection system comprises of a fire hydrant system and automatic fire sprinkler system for the purpose of fire suppression in buildings. A fire hydrant system is a water supply with sufficient pressure and flow delivered through pipes for fire-fighting purposes. Water from a reticulated fire hydrant system can also be shared with an automatic fire sprinkler systems. In Australia, any building over three stories needs a fire protection system installed, and this can be expensive and time consuming to install and maintain.

    Allmach’s Fire Services Protection Solutions


    Traditionally fire protection systems have been created using a heavy, screw system with heavy thick-walled pipes and various glue and screw fittings, which are extremely time-consuming to install and lack design flexibility. These systems are prone to installer injury, can only be floor-mounted due to the weight, and rust and leakage due to the screw method of joining pipe.

    Allmach’s carbon-steel range of pipe and fittings negates these cost and installation issues and includes:

      • SurePress: A carbon steel system is an internally and externally zinc-coated tube, prevents rust or leaks. It has a light weight, thin-walled tube which is put together on-site by press fit fittings. Pipe can be cut with plumbing tube cutters, pushed together, and then crimped using a battery-operated tool. No threading or roll-grooving machines required. A SurePress carbon steel fire protection system is 10 times faster to install, is safer to handle, allows on site design modification flexibility, and it has up to 30 % cost saving on installation.
