SHEVs and Fire Alarm System


Recommended Posts

What is the requirement for Smoke control systems and their relevant detectors to be linked via interface to the main fire alarm system?

Is this complaint installation with laws / regs?

It is a new build 4 Storey non-residential premise with stand alone central stair Smoke control system installed.

the central stair case is the only fire escape access above G floor in the building and the smoke detectors in this stair case do not go back to main system.

the only info I have found.. ADB - "it is essential that detection, alarm and systems required for compliance by Building regs are designed to achieve a high level of reliability".

As far as I am aware the shev system control is totally separate to the fire alarm system and why would you want to interface it with the fire alarm.

Check it out with the Smoke Control Association and https://www.secontrols.com/en-gb/installations/smoke-ventilation/guidance-regulations/ it may help.
