RHL Brigade Standpipes are used to connect to an underground hydrant as part of a mains supply. Standpipes without non-return valves are intended for use by fire brigades in emergency applications whereas other users should be using a standpipe with a non-return valve in order to prevent back-flow of contaminated water into the mains system.
We fabricate our brigade standpipes from our UK facility using durable materials for emergency and industrial use, under a quality management system.
RHL Standpipes are manufactured using both BS1490 LM25 and 6082 T6 Aluminium. The gaskets both in the base and head of the standpipes are made of NBR Rubber.
Our double check valves are WRAS approved and conform with EN13959, with the body made of body DZR and its non-return core being POM.
All of our standpipes are tested and certified in house using a ‘Hydrostatic Pressure Test Procedure’ to 16 bar working pressure. During testing the standpipes are pressurised to 22.5 bar for a minimum period of 2 minutes.
RHL have a wide variety of Brigade Standpipe options available including screw in and plug in head configurations with options including double check valves and both single and double headed variants. Outlets are 2 1/2″ female instantaneous and inlet options are 2 1/2″ BSRT female or 2 1/2″ Male Belfast V Thread.
