IB-05 V1.1 Sprinkler System Component Fault Monitoring


The effectiveness of automatic sprinkler systems as active fire safety systems is well documented in relation to their ability to suppress and control fires as well as alert the fire brigade (where such a connection exists). However, none of these benefits will be experienced if key components fail or do not function correctly at the time of a fire incident.


This document has been prepared by FPA Australia to:

  • Highlight the importance of sprinkler system component fault monitoring;
  • Outline some of the requirements in the Building Code of Australia (BCA) and Australian Standards for such monitoring; and,
  • Provide recommendations in regards to this monitoring to relevant stakeholders for their consideration.
