New B&Q store chooses Grundfos packaged fire suppression system


Packaged Pump House solution

B&Q is the largest DIY and garden retailer in the UK with 350+ stores within its portfolio. They are continuing to expand and recently opened a new store in Burgess Hill, Sussex.

With a stock profile that encompasses around 40,000 lines - many of which are flammable - a state of the art fire suppression system is a high priority for B&Q. This is why fire specialists Grundfos Pumps worked in conjunction with Alpine Fire engineers to develop a bespoke solution. They subsequently proposed a Grundfos Packaged Pump House solution that would meet the most stringent criteria.


Grundfos introduced these systems in 2009 and each pre-packaged pump house is delivered to site complete with the pumps – in this instance 2 x LPCB high hazard diesel pumps - and with the necessary pipework, valves, wiring, heating, lighting and drainage, all packaged within in an insulated steel enclosure and mounted on a structural steel baseplate.


Packaged fire units from Grundfos offer several key benefits: reduced labour requirements/costs on site, reduced ground-works, all are fully assembled and pre-tested in a quality controlled environment at the Grundfos factory and Fire Excellence Centre in Sunderland, prior to delivery.


Fully compliant with the BS EN12845 installation standard and delivered crane-offloaded to site; this solution is one neat package that will continue to deliver for many years to come.
