What is this standard about?

The BS 8489 series of standards grew out of Drafts for Development (DD) and provides essential guidance to those involved in fire safety. This first part of BS 8489 gives recommendations for the specific design and installation of industrial and commercial watermist systems.

Who is this standard for?

  • Anyone involved in the fire engineering community
  • Manufacturers, designers and installers of watermist systems
  • Specifiers
  • Regulators
  • Insurers

Why should you use this standard? 

BS 8489-1 provides a structured approach and guidelines for designing and installing fixed watermist systems, outlining specific industrial and commercial fire hazards and helping to protect both life and property. 

The BS 8489 series uses a structured approach to the selection, application and deployment of watermist systems in buildings. They help assist the fire engineering community in formulating fire-fighting strategies for the protection of buildings and complement the guidance provided in BS 5306-0 Fire protection installations and equipment on premises. Guide for selection of installed systems and other fire equipment.

What’s changed since the last update?

BS 8489-1 is a full revision of the Draft for Development and includes the following principal changes:

  • Guidance on areas of operation
  • Guidance on the effective capacity of tank
  • Extension of scope of application to cover more areas in buildings when supported by test standards produced by other organizations
