Tea Point / Coffee / Vending Areas

The Threat

Tea points and vending areas are a risk as there are usually a number of water services supplied to a relatively small area. In most cases a tea point will only need covering if it is above or adjacent to a room that is a high risk such as a data centre, comms room or server room or if there are critical services below.

The Solution

The recommended method of leak detection is usually for a length of TT1000 to be installed under the kitchen units where the pipe work is located or in the floor void around the perimeter of the room. If it is a very small area that needs covering then it may be more cost effective to use a single AT-PROBE. For areas such as this a single zone alarm panel is usually adequate unless there are other areas that need covering, in which case a multi zone alarm or digital system (AT-MZA/ TTDM) would be more appropriate.
