Title Extinguishing systems in warehouses
Original title L÷schanlagen in Lńgern [in German]
Bibliographic information Mar. 1991, Vol.45, No.3, p.170-174. Illus.
Abstract This article describes a non-automatic fire extinguishing system for warehouses with floor areas between 200 and 1000m2, which uses fixed pipes with nozzles. It differs from sprinkler systems in that the extinguishing agent is fed into the pipes upon outbreak of a fire. All extinguishing agents, water, foam, powder and CO2 can be used. The system is suitable if the warehouse is equipped with an automatic smoke detection system and the local fire brigade is capable of reaching the warehouse within 15 minutes.
