fire sprinkler system suppliers

Scaling New Heights

We are a relatively small but rapidly growing manufacturer and supplier of specialist fire sprinkler system components to most installers/maintainers in the UK. One of our most exciting projects, supplied to one of our largest customers (themselves one of the biggest names in the fire sprinkler industry), took many months to come to fruition but is (so far) the largest …

ZONE GUARDIAN Test Module

ZONE GUARDIAN Test Module continuous improvement

Part of our ethos at SEP has always been, and will continue to be, to listen to customer feedback and improve our products. One such recent and very important example is that of the Test Module for our flagship ZONE GUARDIAN flow switch test device… As nothing stands still, we needed a design change to make the ZG test modules …

domestic and residential sprinklers

Domestic and Residential sprinklers systems keep growing

For reasons we won’t go into again, the domestic and residential market continues to grow rapidly – we are fielding ever more enquiries in relation to pump booster sets and residential risers, and April was a record month for sales of residential products. Of course, because of our customer base, most of these are from established fire sprinkler designers and …

mains fed false alarms

Mains-fed false alarms?

Last month we reported how the cold snap had positively impacted our sales of air compressors for dry/alternate systems…well, at this time of year we turn our thoughts to stocking up on our Alarm Valve Booster Pumps. Why? Because as cold snaps turn to warm/dry spells and water companies start playing with mains pressures to manage demand in busy and …

NEW: Pressure Test Devices

Some of our customers have asked us to create some sort of ‘test rig’ which can be connected up to a pressure source (air or water) to enable the checking and/or setting of pressure gauges or pressure switches. We have been using similar test devices here for years, but we never really thought about selling them. We’ve come up with this little assembly which …

Right tool for the job?

For some reason we have recently taken a higher number of calls from some customers (or end-users) in relation to the performance of a compressor – namely that it might be jamming (attempting to start but not quite able to) or hunting (starting and stopping in quick succession). We certainly don’t claim never to have a faulty component, such as the compressor …

Air Compressor records tumble with the temperatures

As most of our regular customers will know, we’ve been incredibly busy recently. In our October email, we talked about the up-coming ‘compressor season’ which is driven mainly by the changeover of alternate systems from wet to dry…normally by March we start to see a seasonal dip as those systems are changed back to water as temperatures start to rise. …

2018 Brochure

Before 2015, our so-called ‘marketing’ was a website full of dubious photos and out-of-date information, and a paper loose-leaf binder replicating this. In 2015 we invested a huge amount of time and money to bring this up to date and launched our first proper brochure – it’s not a full catalogue of our complete range of products and options, as …

flow switch test

ZONE GUARDIAN flow switch test update Feb 2018

Although a massively important and exciting product to us, we were almost getting fed up of listening to ourselves harping on about ZONE GUARDIAN, so we left it alone for a few months to be able to share some of our other news. This month, we thought we’d share just a few snippets of information, along an Olympic theme… Faster …

domestic and residential booster sets

Domestic & Residential Booster Sets

Even though England is still running well behind Wales and Scotland as far as legislation for domestic and residential fire sprinklers is concerned, we are continuing to see growth in the number of enquiries and orders for related products. Although we are not a supplier of ‘commodity’ products such as pipework and sprinkler heads, we offer a range of stainless …
