Fixed Fire Fighting Systems

FIXED FIRE FIGHTING SYSTEMS

INTRODUCTION

The fixed fire extinguishing systems approved by LPCB are for the protection of specific risks, e.g. computer rooms, switch gear, high risk production lines, commercial kitchen protection systems etc. Great care must be taken in the choice of fire extinguishing agent with respect to life safety, damage to equipment from bi-products, venting and the time it takes to have the system operational again after a discharge incident. In addition to careful product/system selection it is recommended that all systems are designed, installed and commissioned by third party approved contractors who have demonstrated their competence.

Red Book Live Listings include: Products

- Gaseous system components

- Gaseous systems

- Fine water spray components

- Fixed fire extinguishing systems for catering equipment.

Products are approved in accordance with a range of standards, the details of which are given at the front of each section of Red Book Live relevant to the product. Design, installation and commissioning contractors.

LPS 1204: Requirements for contractors engaged in the design, installation and commissioning of fixed fire systems.

The purpose of LPS 1204 scheme, Requirements for firms engaged in the design, installation, commissioning and servicing of gas extinguishing systems, is to provide an assurance that gas extinguishing systems perform correctly. It is recommended that the LPS 1204 Certificated Firm is given responsibility for the complete system, including the following aspects:

- Selection of appropriate gas type

- Extinguishing design concentration

- Check on enclosure leakage integrity

- Discharge and post discharge venting

- Electrical system integration

Certification of Fixed Systems and LPCB Certificates of Conformity.

It is a requirement of the LPS 1204 scheme that Certificated Firms shall issue an LPCB Certificate of Conformity in respect of each completed system, extension and alteration. The issue of an LPCB Certificate of Conformity:

(a) certifies that the gas extinguishing system, extension or alteration has been designed, installed and commissioned in accordance with the recognised standards identified in LPS 1204 and

(b) ensures that the certificated system, extension and alteration is recorded by LPCB.

LPCB Inspections

LPS 1204 Certificated Firms are regularly audited for their competence to design, install, commission and service gas extinguishing systems in accordance with recognised installation standards.

Additional Offices

Where a firm has additional offices, each office must meet the requirements of LPS 1204 to be eligible for certification, and is separately listed.

Provisional Approval

Firms with limited experience and track record can gain Provisional Approval in the LPS 1204 scheme. Their work is closely monitored by LPCB and when they have completed the requisite number of gas extinguishing systems contracts over a period of not less than two years, and subject to satisfactory performance, they will be given full approval and listed in this section of Red Book Live.
