BS EN 54-20:2006

Fire detection and fire alarm systems. Aspirating smoke detectors

Status : Current, Work in hand   Published : June 2006



BS EN 54-20:2006 specifies the requirements, test methods and performance criteria for aspirating smoke detectors for use in fire detection and fire alarm systems installed in buildings.

Aspirating smoke detectors developed for the protection of specific risks that incorporate special characteristics (including additional features or enhanced functionality for which this standard does not define a test or assessment method) are not covered by this standard. The performance requirements for any special characteristics are beyond the scope of this standard.

NOTE Certain types of detector contain radioactive materials. The national requirements for radiation protection differ from country to country and they are not therefore specified in this European standard.
