Summary and Info
BS 5839-1:2013 is the current code of practice that makes recommendations for the design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of fire detection and fire alarm systems in non-domestic premises. Compliance with BS 5839-1 is very commonly required throughout the UK by building control bodies, fire and rescue authorities and other authorities who may enforce provisions for fire safety in certain occupancies. This new book, fully revised and updated in its fourth edition, is the comprehensive guide to BS 5839-1:2013. Based on in-depth experience of developing this code of practice as well as its use in the field, this book provides full background explanation and discusses the practical application of its recommendations.
