This European Technical Specification provides guidelines for the application of automatic fire detection and fire alarm systems in and around buildings. The Technical Specification covers planning, design, installation, commissioning, use and maintenance of the systems.
The guidelines cover systems intended for the protection of life and/or the protection of property.
The guidelines cover systems with at least one fire detector. The systems may be capable of providing signals to initiate, in the event of a fire, the operation of ancillary equipment (such as fixed fire extinguishing systems) and other precautions and actions (such as machinery shutdown), but the guidelines do not cover the ancillary services themselves.
The guidelines do not cover systems combining fire alarm functions with other non-fire related functions.
The guidelines do not recommend whether or not an automatic fire detection and/or fire alarm system should be installed in any given premises. It has been assumed in the drafting of this Part of EN 54 that the execution of its provisions will been trusted to appropriately competent persons. However, guidance is also given to other persons purchasing or using a fire detection or fire alarm system.
