Full description

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.
