Fully hydraulically calculated
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.
Loss Prevention Standard, LPS 1048: Issue 5.0, Requirements for the approval of sprinkler system contractors in the UK and Ireland, Published by BRE Global Ltd in 2015, defines fully hydraulically calculated [FHC] as a: ‘Term applied to an installation in which all the pipework is sized by hydraulic calculation.’ [Definition taken from BS EN 12845 clause 3.29]
