Dry Riser and Wet Riser System in Malaysia

A dry riser system is an empty pipe running up the inside of a building that can be connected to a pressurised water system by firefighters. There will be inlet connections outside the building or in fire escape areas for authorities to access, allowing the water to be pumped up to valves on the upper floors of the building. This system of dry risers in Malaysia is usually used in low-rise buildings.

A wet riser system in Malaysia is commonly used in high-rise buildings. It is usually fully fitted with a steady supply system to distribute water to multiple building levels. The internal hydrant of the wet riser is generally made accessible and utilised when needed by authorities.

Importance of Dry Riser & Wet Riser System

Wet and dry risers are a crucial part of fire protection for multi-level buildings, allowing for rapid water access and transportation in the event of a fire. Dry and wet risers should be routinely tested and serviced every 12 months and inspected every 6 months.

The tests include a complete functional check of the system, ensuring that the appropriate pressure levels can be reached and that they can be used at a moment’s notice.

Wet risers in Malaysia can often be found in buildings 30 metres above ground level.
