Fire Hydrants

What are fire hydrants?

Fire hydrants are used with fire fighting equipment and are typically located underground. Fire hydrant surface boxes are usually marked "FH", and a "H" yellow marker post will be located nearby.

JDP’s most popular fire hydrant is the squat Type 2 fire hydrant; for underground installation it complies with the requirements of BS 750 and features a stainless steel or gunmetal London round thread outlet. Specialist above ground hydrants are also available upon request.
