When considering a new fire protection system it is first necessary to determine the fire hazard level in the building. This process considers factors such as: material used in construction, the occupancy level, the materials stored in the building, the processes performed in the building (and whether these processes include flammable liquids), ceiling heights, ease of egress, and the amount of floors and rooms.

Next the design area and design density must be considered. The design area is a theoretical space within the building that's considered the worst possible place where a fire can break out. Once determined as the highest risk area in the building, this area's risk level is usually applied to the entire building. Then the amount of water per square meter would be needed to put a fire out in the design area is calculated, in litres of water per minute. This helps determine the type of sprinkler heads, fire sprinkler design, and amount of water pressure needed.

Having completed the two tasks above, it becomes possible to determine which fire sprinkler installation and design would best meet the client's needs.

At KPFP we have vast experiencing of designing fire protection systems for a wide range of types of installation including: Gatwick Airport, the Old Bailey, the Tate Modern, and the Centrale shopping centre in Croydon. As a result, we are confident that we can make an excellent job of designing a suitable fire protection system to meet your particular needs.
