Argus has extensive experience in the design and installation of sprinkler systems into residential apartment blocks and developments including retrofitted systems.

We have designed and installed retrofit systems on behalf of housing associations, councils and other public and not for profit organisations as well as creating bespoke systems for luxury apartment developments in London.

The lack of sprinkler systems in developments will not only present significant safety issues for inhabitants but ultimately to value and liability issues for owners. As systems become the norm rather than the exception, buildings without systems will see their value fall and may become difficult to mortgage and insure.

Our designs and installations are sympathetic to the space they are designed for, we take into account the aesthetic needs and client architectural requirements when designing and installing systems.

A recent independent report concluded:

Fires in dwellings where sprinkler systems operated had an average area of fire damage of under 4sq.m. This compares to an average area of fire damage of approximately 18 to 21sq.m for all dwelling fires in England between 2011/12 and 2015/16.

The presence of sprinklers appears to be highly effective in reducing the fire damage area in all building types. In residential properties average damage is reduced by at least 75%.
