Jenni Rose Latest News Leave a Comment

It’s that time of year when most alternate sprinkler systems are changed over from wet to dry for the winter months, as the risk of water freezing increases.

Jenni Rose Latest News Leave a Comment

Here at SEP we’re constantly reviewing the latest legislations and guidance when it comes to anything fire sprinkler related. Over the last few months, and years, we’ve been keenly following the Grenfell enquiry and review and in light of that, the Government’s recent Building Safety Bill. Another campaign we feel passionately about is for schools to have fire sprinklers fitted …

Orifice Unions Go Stainless

Jenni Rose Latest News Leave a Comment

As part of our range of spares and accessories, we offer various orifice fittings (unions, brass plates, other fittings) and many customers take advantage of these when carrying out installations and maintenance.

Greater Manchester is also currently subject to a ‘semi-lockdown’, and our MD is in quarantine prior to a minor operation required by his daughter. So of course it is with mixed …

Dry Riser Test Pumps Up

Newsdesk Latest News Leave a Comment

Sometimes, the best laid plans go awry…and in contrast, some things that were not planned at all just seem to work. The latter can be said of our Dry Riser Test Pump, which was developed almost by chance late last year and has developed an interest that we didn’t see coming.
