Bibliography

Provides guidance on the selection, use and application of automatic water sprinkler, water spray, watermist, gaseous, foam and powder fire-fighting systems and hypoxic air fire-prevention systems. It also gives guidance on installed equipment for fire and rescue service use, and on the application of portable fire extinguishers.

This part of BS5306 gives guidance on the selection, use and application of automatic water sprinkler, water spray, watermist, gaseous, foam and powder fire-fighting systems and hypoxic air fire-prevention systems. It also gives guidance on installed equipment for fire and rescue service use, and on the application of portable fire extinguishers. It complements the more detailed information given in the specialized parts of this standard and other relevant standards.

This part of BS5306 does not cover fire-fighting systems for use on ships, in aircraft, on vehicles and mobile fire appliances or for below ground systems in the mining industry.

It also does not cover powdered aerosol extinguishing agents.
