FES Sprinklers Division was appointed to design, install and commission a bespoke Automatic Sprinkler System to Ordinary Hazard Group 3 zoned system to BSEN12845.

An automatic fire sprinkler to Ordinary Hazard Group 3 zoned system to BSEN12845 system was designed and installed by FES and acts as an integral part of the fire safety strategy for the building. This incorporates full life safety requirements, providing continuous protection 24hours per day irrespective of whether the premises are occupied or not. In the event of a power failure, emergency power is provided by means of an 800kVa Generator. This equipment can continue to supply fully operational power to the venue within 8 seconds of the power outage.

The system is facilitated by SECC existing pumps and tank. The installation covers areas specified by the fire engineer and covers both public and back of house areas.
