Fire Protection Levels

Understanding Protection Levels

There are various types of fire sprinkler / water-mist protection dependant upon the level of protection required. These can be categorised as follows:

Control

In event of a fire, these systems manage a fire until the fire brigade arrives.

Suppress

In event of a fire, these systems manage and actively reduce the size of the fire until the fire brigade arrives.

Extinguish

In event of a fire, these systems completely extinguish a fire.

In the majority of cases systems will be designed to suppress the fire. All Grundfos products comply within these requirements as standard (the site installation would determine how these are setup on site). In each case the fire brigade will require to be in attendance to confirm that the building is safe and disable the equipment as necessary.

Other system installations (such as Hydrant or hose-reels) are designed as connections to a water-supply for the fire brigade upon attendance to potential points within a building where water would not be easily accessible otherwise.
