Fixed firefighting systems - Water mist systems - Part 11: Test protocol for cable tunnels for open nozzle systems

This document specifies fire testing requirements for water mist systems used for fire protection of cable tunnels. The test protocol covers deluge water mist systems with open nozzles which are either activated with an automatic release system, e.g. fire detection system, or manually released.

Ortsfeste Brandbekämpfungsanlagen - Wassernebelsysteme - Teil 11: Prüfprotokoll für Kabeltunnel für offene Düsensysteme

Dieses Dokument legt Anforderungen an Brandversuche für Wassernebelsysteme fest, die für den Brandschutz von Kabeltunneln verwendet werden. Das Prüfprotokoll deckt Sprüh-Wassernebelsysteme mit offenen Düsen, die entweder durch ein automatisches Auslösesystem, z. B. eine Brandmeldeanlage, oder von Hand ausgelöst werden, ab.

Installations fixes de lutte contre l'incendie - Systèmes à brouillard d'eau - Partie 11 : Protocole d'essai des systèmes à buses ouvertes pour galeries de câbles

Le présent document spécifie les exigences en matière d'essais au feu pour les systèmes à brouillard d'eau utilisés pour la protection contre l'incendie des galeries de câbles. Le protocole d'essai couvre les systèmes à brouillard d'eau de type déluge, avec buses ouvertes, qui sont soit déclenchés au moyen d'un système à activation automatique (par exemple, système de détection d'incendie), soit déclenchés manuellement.
