Yes, all my 20 programs for 2018 on this HTTPS encrypted website are completely free ...
Free for you to download as many times as required. Free to use on your projects without restriction, for as long as you want. Free updates and upgrades constantly available. Free technical Email support from the program originator. Free from registration, activation, licences, dongles, copy-protection, upselling, expiry dates, time outs, degrading over time, unlock codes, credit / debit / payment information, quotations, invoices, statements, advertising or 'in-app' purchases.
In other words: you have a FREE perpetual licence to use all my programs for as long as you want them - there are simply no catches! You will never need to ask how much my programs cost as the answer will always be ZERO.
In addition, I do not use INSTALLERS for the single .EXE program files you need to download so there is NO usage tracking, spyware, toolbars, search engine links or unwanted extra programs and no personal details are ever required or retained - you remain completely anonymous. All my 2018 programs have, of course, been checked for malware, viruses, trojans etc.
There are NO requests for information from my program users or visitors of any kind and therefore the 1995 Data Protection Directive or the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) which replace them do not apply to my 20 programs or website after 25th May 2018 as no personal information is ever stored or processed by me and, of course, no third-parties are interested as it is all just my own efforts - right-click on any webpage and select "View Source Code" to see that this is true.
All my "Windows" computers were completely disconnected from the Internet several years ago and I only use the free LINUX based operating system(s) to browse the Internet so as to avoid the all-pervasive tracking / keylogging by Apple, Google, Microsoft etc. In addition, I use GHOSTERY and NOSCRIPT add-ons to the FIREFOX Quantum browser to block other security risks on all websites and only read / reply to Emails via a specific HTTPS Webmail program (not POP3 / IMAP) which encrypts / decrypts all text transmissions to prevent "snooping".
If you are involved in the design or installation of fire sprinkler protection systems, then you have come to the ONLY site on the Internet offering FREE multiple, modern and innovative "Windows" XP, Vista, 7, 8.1 or 10 programs for CAD, hydraulic and associated calculations all in METRIC units (apart from FREEHCP for use in America), with my compliments.
- All my programs are fully up-to-date and comply with the latest, most common sprinkler rules - NFPA, FM Global and derivatives of EN12845
- Metric (S.I.) units applicable worldwide - only FREEHCP is suitable for America
- Printout formats and screen displays acceptable to the respective Fire Authorities, Reviewing Bodies, Insurance Company inspectors in your country, subject, of course, to individual job checking
- None, however, have ever been "approved" by any of these organisations as they would never do so for any program that they did not directly control and only commercial firms and dedicated individuals will ever produce such specialised software
- Some suppliers say that their programs follow the NFPA 13 / 15 / 750 Rules but their printout format is nothing like that given in the NFPA documents so unlikely to be acceptable
- All calculations are performed in accordance with established sprinkler rules and so give EXACTLY the same answers as the few ~15-25 year old programs many of you might still use or have purchased
- There are NO other free fire sprinkler hydraulic calculation programs elsewhere on the Internet, so no point in searching for alternatives as you have found them all here
- Other sites may say their programs are free, but that is ONLY for download and 15 / 30 day trials - you have to PAY to actually use them on your projects
- WINDOWS XP, Vista, 7, 8.1 or 10 with Arial and Lucida Console fonts
- Simple DOWNLOAD (0.5 to 2Mb EXE file) - no install/set-up, addons, viruses or malware so you can have multiple copies direct from this HTTPS website
- If you have never downloaded programs before from the Internet, then please Email me for detailed instructions specifying the browser / Windows version you have
- Guaranteed NO usage tracking, spyware, toolbars, search engine links, unwanted extra or potentially unwanted programs
- No charges for annual updates, extra copies, training or support by Email
- No personal details ever needed or Email addresses, registration, activation, upselling, tracking, expiry dates, time outs, degrading over time, unlock codes, credit / debit / payment information, advertising or 'in-app' purchases
- You will see that I have always give the extent and scope of the input data needed for the various programs - strangely missing from most other suppliers websites and so you only find out what information is actually needed to perform the full hydraulic calculations for the one or more design areas of your projects until you download them and read the help screens
- All of the data files (even the CAD drawings) are in PLAIN TEXT format so not locking you into constantly paying for yearly updates like the "paid-for" suppliers invariably do!
- All my hydraulics programs are really comprehensive in their features and options but are easy to use with modern intuitive, graphical interfaces, inbuilt help and demonstration examples proved on real projects
- I think that you will find that nobody has produced any NEW software in this field for many years now as obviously nobody cannot compete with all my FREE ones so if you are waiting for your current supplier to come up with a modern replacement, you are going to be disappointed
- I, on the other hand, are quite able and willing to DEVELOP any similar sprinkler hydraulic calculations program that you, as an individual or company, may require for your own use (not to sell of course!) - just Email me a full specification (click here for more details)
- I also do not offer any 'paid for' videoes or all day training courses anywhere that overwhelm you with the sheer volume of content - much better to have one of my FREE programs on your PC that you can learn step-by-step at your own pace and I am here by Email should you get "stuck" at any point or if anything is not clear, all at zero cost
- You get FREE technical support by EMAIL from the same person who wrote these programs but I will never send you an Email, except to reply to your one(s) as I do not have any 'partners' or incentive to sell you anything
- I am not on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, Skype or contactable by telephone
- I do not have any other premium or 'paid for' programs and will never produce software for Building Information Management (BIM / REVIT) systems nor for estimating the operating time of DRY sprinkler systems
- On the other hand, if you think that "anything free is not worth what you paid for it" then just ignore my programs and buy one from another supplier and see how little different it is!
