  1. EN12845 2015 TB 208232.3.2 “There shall be a low level alarm drain in close proximity to the alarm valve(s)

    Any ideas what is required here by the FPA

      Hello Gary, our understanding is:

      “The FPA are author and supplier of the UK’s most significant sprinkler installation standard, the LPC Sprinkler Rules, which incorporate the BS EN 12845 standard and additional technical bulletins, for a comprehensive and authoritative guide to best practice in Sprinkler installation and maintenance.”

      On this basis, we conclude that the FPA and EN12845 requirements are coincident.
