Room Integrity Testing

Fixfire offers room integrity testing. The use of gaseous fire extinguishing systems to provide protection for computer and plant rooms is essential given the consequences of fire damage and downtime for such critical equipment. For a fire suppression system to work, the protected room must have sufficient integrity to retain an extinguishing concentration for a specified period after discharge. The British and International Standard BS:IS014520 requires that an enclosure integrity test be carried out at annual intervals. Testing is carried out using a door mounted fan to measure leakage flow and on completion a formal report is issued detailing results and any recommendations.
