FloWatch Fire Sprinkler Monitoring Systems To BS9251:2021 

FlowWatch Fire Sprinkler Monitoring & Alarm Systems To BS9251

FloWatch are a marketing leading manufacture of fire sprinkler monitoring systems and equipment. All our products are compliant with BS9251:2021.
 

We are a proud supporter of UK industry and all of our design, supply chain, assembly and distribution is all UK based. This helps us maintain highest level of quality and service.
 

Domestic and residential systems only requiring annual service visits, they sit dormant for most of their operation lifetime. Due to this, it is important that the sprinkler system and its key components be continually monitored for their correct state and condition. Should any part or component of the system whose failure (or condition) might impair the correct automatic operation of the system in the case of a fire, the raising of a supervisory alarm should take place. This allows for corrective action to be taken.
 

When FloWatch is used alongside monitored isolation valves, supervised circuits, correctly installed water level alarms and the necessary fire pump monitoring you can rest assured your sprinkler system will always be ready in the unlikely event it is needed.

What is Monitoring of a Domestic and Residential Fire Sprinkler System?

master panel, 4 way, img 1.jpg

The aim of monitoring sprinkler systems is the continuous supervision of the main functions of the system, i.e. those whose failure might impair the correct automatic operation of the system in case of fire, and the raising of a supervisory alarm to allow corrective measures to be taken.

BS 9251:2021; Table 5, sets out the required items to be monitored, these are:

  • Pump – Automatic test cycle failure.

  • Pump – Power failure.

  • Pump running.

  • Tank – low water level alarm.

  • Zone stop valve not fully open.

  • All other dedicated sprinkler stop valves.

  • Trace heating system fault.

  • Supervised circuits fault.

In addition to the items described in Table 5, it is important that all flow switches are also monitored. It may be the case that these form part of the Fire Detection System, so are monitored for activation on that system.

 

If the building does not have a dedicated fire alarm system for the communal areas, it’s important for the flow switches to be monitored by another system. FloWatch 9251 is perfectly suited for this application.
