Overview

Local application fire extinguishing systems have been developed for the protection of hazards such as kitchens, vehicle engine bays and electrical cabinets. Kitchen appliances and engines operate at high temperatures and contain highly volatile fuels. In the case of malfunction, a fire often starts and if not controlled can spread rapidly, either throughout a building or into the vehicle itself.  They present a fire engineering challenge due to factors including high heat of combustion and lack of containment, allowing ingress of air and associated fire growth. Correct system design and testing of extinguishing solutions and component approval of the build components is vital to ensure that any protection system will perform within the prescribed limits.

This course provides an overview of local application systems, fire testing, design and limitations, and the necessary maintenance.

Programme

The course will be delivered as a series of modules including:
  • Definition and applications of Local Fire Application Extinguishing Systems
  • Fire Dynamics
  • Fire Test Protocol – separate module pertinent for R107 (vehicle engine bays), LPS 1666 (cabinets) or LPS 1223 (kitchen systems)
  • Fire Hazard Analysis and mapping with the fire test protocol to include limitation and variables
  • Detection & Actuation methods
  • Component Testing and Service Life
  • Installation and maintenance

Intended Audience

 Those that are required to prescribe, design, install, maintain and inspect local application systems for the protection of kitchens, engine bays or cabinets.
