What The Regs Say?
Under The Requirements of BS9251:2014:
All Fire Sprinkler systems should have an alarm device consisting of a flow switch that should be initiated by the flow of water to a single head with the lowest flow rate.
The alarm device should initiate a sprinkler alarm signal that should instigate the appropriate emergency procedures.
The alarm device (Flow Switch) should be connected to either:
Internal audible alarm
Interfaced with an automatic fire detection and alarm system
When connected to an automatic fire detection and alarm system, the actuation of the Sprinkler alarm should be clearly distinguishable on any fire alarm control and indicating equipment.
