Room Integrity

“Room Integrity Testing is a requirement of the British Standard for Fixed Firefighting Systems – BS EN 15004, and most fire insurers will require evidence that the test has been conducted and passed.”

Marc Cowlin, Compliance Manager

British Standard for Fixed Firefighting Systems (BS EN 15004) Compliance

Our air tightness engineers will carry out a Room Integrity Test to examine how long fire suppressant agents take to descend to a given level, without releasing the gas itself. A Room Integrity Test should be performed annually when a gaseous system is installed, or where modifications to the room take place. Room Integrity Testing method includes:

Air pressure is tested with a door fan and sensor equipment, once the room is sealed. The Room Integrity Test usually takes about one and a half hours to complete

Data is generated and processed, in compliance with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and BS EN 15004

The software predicts the time that the suppression agents will be held in the test area at any given height. A retention time of 10 minutes is the minimum period for which the suppressant agents are required to be retained

To avoid disruption, equipment within the room can remain on during the duration of the test, including any air conditioning and recirculation systems. Any air supply/ ducts passing into the room will need to be dampened/closed or temporarily sealed.
