Importance of a Fire Hydrant System

According to the MS 1395 Standards, every building should have fire hydrants located not more than 30 metres away from an entrance to the building. Moreover, the hydrants should not be placed more than 90 metres apart.
In Malaysia, yellow hydrants are metred private hydrants, whereas red hydrants are non-metred public hydrants that use a public water supply system. However, in other countries, a fire hydrant’s colour might indicate different flow rates.
A fire hose reel system provides ease of use with smaller pressure. It is reasonably accessible and available in workplaces. On the other hand, fire hydrant systems have relatively higher pressure and require trained personnel or the fire brigade to operate.
