Hello, dry riser inlet

image

I didn’t know what this was, but I recognised the hello stickers.

A dry riser, according to Wikipedia:

a main vertical pipe intended to distribute water to multiple levels of a building or structure as a component of the fire suppression systems.
The pipe is maintained empty of water. The dry riser is the opposite of a “wet riser” or “wet standpipe” system where the pipes are kept full of water for manual or automatic fire fighting operations. Dry risers have to have fire engine access within 18┬ám of the dry riser inlet box. Dry risers in occupied buildings have to be within a fire resistant shaft, usually one of a building’s fire escape staircase enclosures.

This one was spotted at Charing Cross recently.
