BSI has published BS 9251:2014 (Fire sprinkler systems for domestic and residential occupancies. Code of practice), which gives recommendations for the design, installation, components, water supplies and backflow protection, commissioning, maintenance and testing of fire sprinkler systems in domestic and residential occupancies. The Code of practice is a revision of the 2005 standard, which is withdrawn, and takes into account updates in the sprinkler industry.
These systems are primarily intended for the protection of life in case of fire and have additional benefits for property protection, environmental protection, sustainability of buildings and continuity of use, and firefighter safety. The recommendations of BS 9251:2014 are also applicable to any addition, extension, repair or other modification to a residential sprinkler system. The Standard is intended for the use of designers, engineers, architects, surveyors, contractors, installers and authorities having jurisdiction.
