Suppression systems

Sprinkler systems are only effective if designed, installed and maintained correctly. LPS 1048 Requirements for the approval of sprinkler system contractors in the UK and Eire ensures that installers are capable of designing, installing and maintaining sprinkler systems to acceptable installation standards.


Specifiers should only use Sprinkler Contractors that are LPS 1048 approved to the appropriate level depending on the type of sprinkler work required.

In order to ensure that a sprinkler system is effective, specifiers should always request an LPS 1048 Certificate of Conformity. An LPS 1048 Certificate of Conformity may only be issued for a sprinkler system, installation or extension or alteration that is in full compliance with one of the acceptable installation standards.
