Fire hydrants are perhaps the most essential piece of fire fighting equipment when it comes to a major fire outbreak. When the fire brigade arrives, they are relying on your fire hydrants to function properly without hindrance or delay. That’s why it is paramount that you not only have this essential fire equipment present, but that it is maintained to professional, AS1851.4 fire hydrant inspection standards. Having a regular fire hydrant inspection is about a lot more than just ‘ticking a box’ – a preventative maintenance program will ensure your fire hydrants are performance-ready in the moment of need. Fire hydrants can help to preserve your property but more importantly, they can save lives too.
Just like fire extinguishers, smoke alarms and fire sprinklers, fire hydrants must be maintained and tested regularly even they are unused. With Betta Fire Protection, you’re in the safest hands.

Fire hydrants are installed in the street and within a building. They are only used by the fire brigade in the event of a major fire outbreak. This is very different to fire hose reels, which are the on first line of defence against a fire and can be used by anyone. Effectively, fire hydrants provide much larger volumes of water to strategic points throughout a building (known as landing valves) where a fire fighter can connect a lay-flat hose and attack a fire to bring it under control. Ensuring your fire hydrants are functioning correctly in the event of a major fire is critical to the possibility of the fire brigade bringing a burning building under control or not.
