Sprinklers for Safety
Sprinklers for Safety: Uses and Benefits of Incorporating Sprinklers in Buildings and Structures ISBN 0-9552628 was published on 1 February 2006.
This document, written by Arup Fire provides evidence to aid those professionals making decisions about the incorporation of sprinklers in different building types/designs.
In particular, the document reviews the application of sprinklers in the context of the Building Regulations and proposes examples of the use of sprinklers as a means of alternative compliance ('trade-offs') with Approved Document B (2006) which lists this book as a reference source.
