Gives recommendations for the design and installation of Halon 1211 total flooding systems on premises.

This Section of this code gives recommendations for the design, installation, maintenance and safety of Halon 1211 total flooding fire extinguishing systems in buildings or plant.

Such a system consists of an installation designed to convey Halon 1211 from storage containers for the protection of particular plant or parts of the premises against possible fire risk. Such systems may be piped or otherwise connected.

This code provides factual data on the characteristics of Halon 1211 and the types of fire for which it is a suitable extinguishant.

The code does not cover the design of explosion suppression systems.

Two methods of operation, viz. manual and automatic, are described Advice is given on the selection of a system and on the operational method; also included are detailed recommendations on the design, maintenance and efficient operation of installations. Reference is also made to the part which Halon 1211 systems should play in general schemes of fire protection of premises, having regard to safety as well as efficiency.

NOTE 1. Unless otherwise stated, all pressures are gauge pressures (in bar) 1 bar = 105 N/m2 = 105 Pa.

NOTE 2. The titles of the publications referred to in this code are listed on the inside back cover.
