Standpipes

Standpipes are similar to automatic fire sprinklers and built into the initial construction of a building. They are installed in the stairways of buildings that exceed a certain height or size, but can sometimes be located throughout the walls of the structure. Standpipes provide water flow to hose valves, which can be used by firefighters to connect fire hoses. Much like fire hydrants, firefighters can utilize this connection to spray water from the building’s main water source.
