Unauthorized taking of water from the hydrants from day to day is becoming an increasing problem that all distributors of water are faced by.
People simply access hydrants unauthorized, and that they are allowed to do so because the hydrants must always be available, and all the necessary equipment for unauthorized access to hydrants are available to buy or borrow.

In fact, this is the amount of water that is impossible to determine, and thus the water losses on the distribution networks often show a drastic increase.
Faced with this problem, and in cooperation with several people from the water supply companies, we have produced a solution that will greatly hamper the unauthorized taking of water from the overground hydrants – overground hydrant protection.

To insure that the overground protection of hydrants is correctly installed and that the hydrants would still be available to the fire departments, the special keys should be supplied to the fire departments operating the area.
To prevent the abuse of keys, the keys can come with a seal, marked with the distributor label, and this seal shouldn’t be removed unless there is a fire, in which case there must be a police report. This way the distributor can control the use of the hydrants without any problem.

Technical Data

Protective cover – made of massive aluminum construction with admission for a special key. Only with this special key it is possible to remove the protective cover without damaging it.

Special key – made of steel with a brushed nickel plating. The key is specially manufactured so that it can’t be easily copied. A serial number can be engraved on the key so we could keep track of the assigned keys (fire departments).

One set of overground hydrant protection for 1 hydrant includes 1 piece of type B protective cover and 2 pieces of type C protective cover:
B-fi 75mm
C-fi 52mm
