The correct design, specification, installation and testing are critical in Fire safety engineering to reduce the potential for death, injury, damage to property and the ensuing financial losses that result. This unique set brings together two of the latest publications that provide current best practice and guidance in this safety critical area.
This set primarily looks at the UK, but CIBSE Guide E does include codes, standards and guidance from the USA that are regularly used in the Middle East and Asia.
The set consists of 2 Publications
BSRIA BG 70/2017 - Life Safety and Firefighting Power Supplies
The correct design, specification, installation and testing of life safety and firefighting installations are fundamental to protecting human life; both for the building occupants required to evacuate in the event of a fire and for the firefighters required to enter the building to deal with the incident. These systems depend on the integrity of their electrical supplies to operate when required to do so.
This guide provides information on designing power supplies to systems such as:
- Sprinkler pumps
- Wet riser pumps
- Smoke control systems
- Firefighting lifts
- Escape lifts
It draws together the requirements outlined in many product and application specific standards. It includes guidance on secondary power supplies, switchgear, fire-resistant cables and busbar.
