Domestic Fire Sprinkler Systems

Domestic Fire Sprinklers

Domestic Fire Sprinkler Systems are installed in individual houses, such as, Single Occupancy or Single Family Homes.

 

These usually require a Fire Sprinkler System installed if there is Open Plan Living, a home extension or loft conversion. These Fire Sprinkler Systems are usually installed for safer escape routes from your property.

 

Your Building Control Officer (BCO) may suggest installing a Fire Sprinkler System in your home and will instruct you on whether you will need full (entire Property to BS9251:2014) or partial (escape Routes) protection.

 

Approved Document B - where Fire Sprinklers are provided, it is normal practise to provide Fire Sprinkler Protection throughout the building. However, where the fire sprinklers are been installed as a compensatory feature to address a specific risk or hazard it may be acceptable to protect only part of the building.
