Statistics show that sprinklers extinguish or control between 98 and 99 percent of fires that break out in sprinklered premises, 82 percent by 4 sprinkler heads or less.
Close liaison between the LPCB and BRE Global's test laboratories ensures that new features can be properly evaluated beyond the requirements of the defined test standard.
Standards used by LPCB for approving and listing components have been developed to ensure that the components are suitable for use in systems installed to the LPC Sprinklers Rules/EN 12845. Components will often be suitable for use in installations designed to NFPA rules and to other national sprinkler installation codes.
We currently use the following standards for certification of sprinkler components/installers:
