Fire detection and alarm systems in buildings
|Publication Date:||13 May 2021|
This standard specifies the requirements for fire detection and alarm systems in buildings. It applies to their design, installation, extension, modification, commissioning, testing, maintenance, and documentation.
This standard applies to the following fire alarm systems:
(a) Multi-zone (manual or automatic) - see section 2;
(b) Single-zone (manual or automatic) - see section 3.
Operating temperature range
Equipment installed to this standard is intended to operate within the temperature range 0°C to 40°C. Special precautions will be necessary for more adverse conditions.
This standard specifies performance and test requirements for electrical and electronic fire alarm systems. Alternative technologies that do not comply with the specific requirements but give equivalent performance are not necessarily prohibited. In such cases, appraisal testing and certification will need to demonstrate this equivalent performance.
