Automatic Sprinkler Systems

Product not currently available for purchase online.

An automatic sprinkler system is designed to detect a fire and extinguish it with water in its early stages or hold the fire in check so that extinguishment can be complete by other means. The current British Standard is BS EN 12845 with supplementary Technical Bulletins.

A sprinkler system consists of a water supply (or supplies) and one or more sprinkler installations; each installation consists of a set of installation main control valves and a pipe array fitted with sprinkler heads. The sprinkler heads are fitted at specified locations at the roof or ceiling, and where necessary between racks, below shelves, and in ovens or stoves.

Systems are designed in accordance with either a pre-calculated table where pipe diameters are given or fully calculated where pipework is sized by hydraulic calculation.
