Automatic fire sprinkler

The Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB part of BRE Global) sets the standards needed to ensure that fire and security products and services perform effectively. LPCB’s Loss Prevention Standards (LPS) are applied in fire and security sectors around the world.

LPS 1036 - 2.2 Quality schedule for the certification of automatic fire sprinklers, published by BRE Global in 2014, defines an automatic fire sprinkler as: ‘A device sealing an aperture in a pipe of a sprinkler installation that discharges water automatically in a predetermined pattern over a specified area when it operates at a predetermined temperature.’
