ISO 14520 is the fundamental regulation for Gaseous Extinguishing Systems, referencing:
Overall the assumption is that little needs to be done on a “pressurised, dynamic system” after it is installed and nor is the “protected space” constantly monitored for room integrity and this “agent hold time”. This leaves a clean agent gaseous extinguishing system un-monitored for 364 days a year. No essential machinery in defence, offshore oil and gas or power generating would be left un-monitored for 1 hour per day. This is the “Ungoverned Space” which we invite you to work with us on to close the gap for your customers and provide added protection, minimising the risk of fire.
Who today in the security industry would consider installing an alarm system without monitoring its overall status and integrating the whole of it to the building management system with central monitoring
being an essential part of it? This is a basic engineering principle: build redundancy into one’s systems and monitor critical systems, to protect people or a critical infrastructure or asset.
