Study results for download

This study is related to a previous one carried out by BRE on behalf of the DCLG on the effectiveness of residential sprinklers. The previous study concentrated on pendent type residential sprinklers and is detailed in BRE project report 204505 (Effectiveness of sprinklers in residential premises) and can be found this site.

The overall aim of this current project was to investigate the suitability of concealed and recessed pattern sprinklers for use in residential premises, particularly concerning their effectiveness and maintainability.

To achieve this, the project was divided into stages: selection of products, experimental programme, review of maintainability issues and development and evaluation of a new thermal sensitivity test. This project was guided and reviewed by a Steering Group.
