Automatic Fire Sprinkler System
The Building Code of Australia (BCA) in Part E1 Fire Fighting Equipment in Clause E1.5 Sprinklers, nominates when a sprinkler system is to be installed in a building. A sprinkler system is designed to suppress a fire and alert the fire brigade automatically. All building surveyors/ building certifiers will nominate sprinkler systems in the essential safety measures determination/ schedule.
A fire sprinkler system is an active fire suppression system, common in industrial and commercial buildings consisting of a water supply system, providing adequate pressure and flowrate to a water distribution piping system, onto which fire sprinklers are connected. Generally, it is provided throughout Class 1 – 9 buildings if any part of the building has an effective height of more than 25m or in area which has exceeded a certain fire compartmentation size.
FSP can provide an Automatic Fire Sprinkler System design to Australian and international standards. We analysis each project on its merits, and provide an economical design using the latest technology and best practices available.
With the developments in computer based full hydraulic design packages. The complex piping network can become simple and economical. We provide best solution for your projects. We prepare our design drawings using CAD drawings, detailing such things as equipment Schedules, valve schematics & pipe hanger assemblies, giving a clear picture of the proposed system design.
