What is BS EN 12845:2004+A2:2009?
BS EN 12845 sets out the minimum requirements for the design, installation and maintenance of fixed fire sprinklers in buildings and industrial plants. These best-practice recommendations also apply to any addition, extension, repair or modification to built-in fire extinguishers. BS EN 12845 looks at the classification systems of hazards, the provision of water supply, and the components that are used in the installation, performance testing, maintenance and the extension of existing systems. It also identifies the construction details of buildings.
How does it work?
BS EN 12845 starts by looking at the contract planning and documentation for fire sprinklers, before defining the extent of sprinkler protection. It then explains the classification of occupancies and fire hazards, hydraulic design criteria and the types of water supply. Other topics include pumps, pipe sizing and layout, sprinkler design, valves, and alarms and alarm devices.
