Restricted Space for the installation of a sprinkler system
Killeavy Castle is a Grade A historical building, which in recent time went under restoration to develop into an intimate hotel and wellness centre. In order to open to the public and to comply with safety regulations, the establishment required an integrated sprinkler tank system. An essential element of the sprinkler system is the water storage tank, which is for containing the system’s water for emergencies.
A problem encountered by the owners was the available space in the chosen tank placement room, in particular, was the height restriction due to the limited height available. To solve this problem, the team turned to Tricel and requested a suitable solution to accommodate restricted space.
Tricels production team identified the ideal solution, which was to manufacture a reduced ball valve housings at 300mm in height. This in turn solved the height restriction issue. We also provided a slide off access hatch and custom modified the external ladder to fit within the allocated space.
Our in-house tank assembly team then constructed the required sprinkler tank in line with requirements based on the site development plan. The entire solution was in place on schedule, allowing for the project to be completed on time
THE FINAL RESULT
This is s great example of when a reduced ball valve can be a perfect solution. Our manufacturing and site crews have utilised the space and provide a custom modified ladder to ensure access to the water tank. Our sales, manufacturing, and logistics departments and site crews worked together alongside the owners to ensure that the project was completed in December 2018.
