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
- Outline some of the requirements in the Building Code of
Australia (BCA) and Australian Standards for such monitoring;
- Provide recommendations in regards to this monitoring to
relevant stakeholders for their consideration.
