Over deze norm
This draft European Standard specifies requirements and gives recommendations for the design, installation and maintenance of fixed residential fire sprinkler systems in buildings, or parts of buildings, for residential and domestic occupancies. The buildings are classified as follows: a) Building type 1 (the least hazardous): 1) one or 2 family dwelling / house; 2) single apartment in an unsprinklered building; 3) manufactured home. b) Building type 2: 1) apartments / block of flats; 2) house with multiple households using shared facilities; 3) care home / nursing home (excluding hospitals) / kindergarten; 4) student accommodation. Building type 2 is limited to buildings with up to 4 storeys above ground. c) Building type 3: 1) building type 2 higher than 4 storeys and hotels up to 4 storeys. Areas within buildings that contain hazards other than those which typically would be found in a residential occupancy are not covered by this standard and should be protected by a sprinkler system, including its water supply, designed in accordance with EN 12845. In such buildings the part that is a residential occupancy should be designed in accordance with this standard. Forms of secure accommodation such as correctional or rehabilitation facilities are not covered by this standard. The requirements and recommendations of this standard are also applicable to any addition, extension, repair or other modification to the residential sprinkler system. This standard covers the provision of water supplies, components to be used, installation and testing of the system, maintenance, and the extension of existing systems, and identifies construction details of buildings which are the minimum necessary for satisfactory performance of residential sprinkler systems complying with this standard. The standard is not intended to restrict new technologies or alternative arrangements, provided that an equivalent level of safety is ensured by a third party. This standard is intended for use by those concerned with purchasing, designing, installing, testing, inspecting, approving, operating and maintaining automatic residential sprinkler systems, in order that such equipment will function as intended throughout its life. This standard is intended only for fixed residential fire sprinkler systems in buildings on land, and it is a basic assumption that this standard is for the use of companies employing personnel competent in the field of application with which it deals. Only trained and experienced personnel should undertake the design, installation and maintenance of residential sprinkler systems. Similarly, competent technicians should be used in the inspection and testing of the system. This standard does not necessarily cover all legislative requirements. National requirements regarding residential occupancies are mandatory.
