BS EN 13565-2:2009 Fixed firefighting systems. Foam systems. Design, construction and maintenance

Foam systems are designed to provide a homogeneous layer of bubbles, of aerated fire fighting foam concentrate and water, over the surface of flammable liquids (Class B) and/or combustible materials (Class A). The layer of bubbles will suppress the release of flammable vapours, exclude air, and cool the fuel and hot surfaces.

This European Standard specifies the requirements and describes the methods for design, installation, testing and maintenance of low, medium, and high expansion foam fire extinguishing systems.

This European Standard provides guidance for the design of various foam systems available to persons with knowledge and experience in determining the selection of foam fire extinguishing systems which will be effective in protecting specific hazard configurations.

This European Standard does not cover a risk analysis carried out by a competent person.

Nothing in this European Standard is intended to restrict new technologies or alternative arrangements, provided that the level of safety prescribed in this standard is not lowered, and supported by documented evidence/test reports.
