Pump Initiation Board

Easily test pump pressure switches according to LPC rules.

A new standard in pump initiation boards.

Pump initiation boards are designed for testing of sprinkler system pump initiation pressure switches in compliance with LPC sprinkler rules. Our standard boards include two pressure switches for each main pump (BS EN 12845) and a single switch for the jockey pump. Each pressure switch can be isolated so its function and cut-in pressure can be verified during system servicing. Our boards are built to the highest quality on the market and undergo the same rigorous factory testing as all our products do.


Optional custom branding included on each board.

100% factory tested.

Branded pressure gauges upon request.

Printed aluminium composite back board.

Instructions and video link for simplicity of testing.

Compliant boards for BS EN 12845, BS 5306 & LPC sprinkler installations.
