Recently, certifying authorities are adhering more stringently to the sections of the NCC and Australian Standards which state that installation of fire rated pipe supports must be installed for all hydrant pipes in buildings that are not sprinkler protected.
AS 2419.1: 2005 from the introduction in the NCC in 2011.
All hydrant / service pipes installed that are not protected by sprinkler system must be protected via AS:2419.1. whether the building has sprinklers or not.
The Fire Rated Solutions fire hydrant pipe support brackets are the only option that is fully tested and code compliant. Our certification standards are above code and fully certified.

Our pear hangers, yoke pipe clamp brackets, 2 rod clamps and other fire rated building supplies are not only 100% code compliant but also the only 3rd party certified solution.
Put simply the best solution for all involved including consultants, certifiers, builders, contractors, and owners.
There are systems currently on the market that are being used which require a 2-stage installation procedure making them much more expensive. Notable are; wrap, vermiculite spray, and metal covers containing fire retardant materials. None of which have been fully tested nor compliant. Whether the fail is in the anchor system, the engineered solution, incorrect spacings, or just not tested for this situation. No other system is 100% compliant and should not be used as “standard practice’ .
Fire Rated Solutions are currently working towards seismic fixing solutions to work in conjunction with our current fire rated solution. We are expecting May 2022 to have the seismic brackets tested and available in our catalogue of brackets.
Moving forward we have some of Australia’s most respected Hydraulic Consultants and designers specifying Fire Rated Solutions brackets on all their current and upcoming projects as per the new design and specification requirements set out by the NSW building commissioner.
We would like to also get these items specified on your current and upcoming drawings.
