New Requirements for Automatic Fire Suppression
• In October 2013, the National Assembly for Wales passed new regulations that require a fire sprinkler or misting system to be installed in new and converted houses and flats.
• Changes were announced to require Automatic Fire Suppression Systems to be installed in residential buildings throughout Wales from 1st January 2016. This requirement applies to all new and converted:
The requirement will apply to new and converted houses and flats, including converted:
- Care Homes
- Rooms for residential purposes (other than in a hotel, hospital, prison or short stay leisure hostel)
- Registered group homes and sheltered housing
Although sprinkler systems can be effective at suppressing fires in the home, misting systems not only take up less space (as they don’t require water holding tanks), but use less water which means that if activated, they will cause less water damage to the home.
Burning your toast won’t set off a misting system! They are activated via heat not smoke, and temperatures must reach minimum 57 degrees celsius to activate the misting nozzles.
