Riser Room Sign; What it Looks Like and How to Get it

Riser Room Sign

The riser room sign helps you identify a riser room even when you do not enter the room.

As we know, the riser room is the room or designated space where the control room of the fire sprinkler system is kept. It is where above-ground vertical supply pipes (system risers) connect the water supply to the fire sprinkler system’s cross and/or feed mains and where the system’s pressure and water are monitored and controlled. These system risers contain the pressure gauges, control valves, water flow alarms, and main drains for the sprinkler system.
