Product Overview

Summary of this standard

BS EN 12845:2004+Amendment 2:2009 specifies requirements and provides recommendations for the design, set-up and maintenance of fixed fire sprinkler systems in buildings and industrial plants. It also covers any addition, extension, repair or other modification to a sprinkler system but not to water spray or deluge systems.

It takes into account the classification of hazards, provision of water supplies, components, installation and testing of the system, maintenance, and the extension of existing systems. Minimum construction details of buildings are identified for satisfactory performance of complying sprinkler systems.

BS EN 12845 does not cover water supplies to systems other than sprinklers. Its requirements can be used as guidance for other fixed fire fighting extinguishing systems, however, provided that any specific requirements for other fire fighting extinguishing supplies are taken into account.

·           Contract planning

·           Extent of sprinkler protection

·           Hydraulic design criteria

·           Water supplies

·           Pumps
