Project Description

/Maintenance of fire hydrant networks

Castagna Antincendi perform periodic maintenance on any type of fire hydrant network and related components, even those supplied by other companies.

The maintenance operations on components of fire hydrant network systems, both inside and outside the building, comply with national standards UNI 673/3 e UNI 10779 and with the use and maintenance manual of the supplier of the system. In specific cases we also perform maintenance in accordance with international standards (NFPA, FM).

The main components of the hydrant network are: wall hydrants; hose reels; pillar hydrants; underground hydrants; fire engine discharge connections; deluge valve and venting devices, typical of dry pipe networks.

The maintenance phases are described in the table below, which also shows the periodicities.

Following each visit, Castagna Antincendi’s maintenance technician will draw up an intervention report and update the maintenance card. The person in charge, on the other hand, must record the activity in the appropriate register.?
