Draft guideline for consultation

Guidelines for the Triggering of Fire Extinguishing Systems, planning and installation – CEA 4015 (Draft)


These guidelines apply to the triggering and control of automatically and manually actuated fixed gas and aerosol fire extinguishing systems (referred to throughout this document as fire extinguishing system). The scope of application covers control devices that are operated with

  • electrical
  • mechanical or
  • pneumatic

energy or a combination of these energies.

These guidelines do not apply to spark extinguishing systems, powder extinguishing systems, explosion suppression and oxygen reduction systems.

Although predominantly aimed at assisting those involved in the release of fire extinguishing systems, these guidelines also provide information in situations, which could be used for the actuation of other fire protection measures.
