This document has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission and the

European Free Trade Association, and supports essential requirements of EU Directive(s).

For relationship with EU Directive(s), see informative Annex ZA, B, C or D, which is an integral part of this

Introduction

Hose systems in proper condition provide a very effective firefighting facility with a continuous supply of water

available immediately.

The requirements of this standard have been framed to ensure that hose systems can be operated efficiently

by one person and that such systems will have a long service life and will not need excessive maintenance.

1 Scope

This European Standard specifies requirements and methods of test for the construction and performance of

fire hose systems with lay-flat hose for installation in buildings and other construction works, permanently

connected to a water supply, for use by the occupants.

Its requirements may apply in general for other applications, for example in marine applications or in

aggressive environments, but additional requirements may be necessary in such cases.

For convenience of application in conformity testing, the normative annexes of this standard are arranged so

that annex A gives the sequence of testing for conformity assessment and annexes B, C, D and E are in the

correct sequence for testing.
2 Normative references

This European Standard incorporates by dated or undated reference, provisions from other publications.

These normative references are cited at the appropriate places in the text and the publications are listed

hereafter. For dated references, subsequent amendments to or revisions of any of these publications apply to

this European Standard only when incorporated in it by amendment or revision. For undated references the

latest edition of the publication referred to applies (including amendments).

8.1 General

Cabinets shall be fitted with a door and can be fitted with a lock. Cabinet doors shall open to minimum 170° to

allow the hose to be run out freely in any direction. Cabinets shall be free of sharp edges, which might

damage the equipment or cause injury.

Lockable cabinets shall be provided with an emergency opening device, which may be protected only by

transparent frangible material. To provide access for inspection and maintenance, the cabinet shall be unlock

able with a key.

If the emergency opening device is protected by a frangible glass front this shall be of the type which when

broken does not leave jagged or sharp edges, which might cause injury when the emergency opening is

operated.

When transparent material is used as a part of the construction of the door then this shall not be used as the

emergency access to the hose system.

Cabinets may also be used to contain other firefighting equipment, provided that the cabinet is of sufficient

size and the equipment does not interfere with the prompt use of the hose system.

For service in some climatic conditions it may be necessary to provide the cabinet with suitable ventilating

openings.
8.2 Opening device

An opening device shall be provided to allow periodical inspection and maintenance. The opening device shall

have provision for a security seal to be fitted.
---------------------- Page: 11 ----------------------
oSIST prEN 671-2:2006
prEN 671-2:2006 (E)

the opening device should be reasonably difficult to operate to minimise misuse and theft.

8.3 Cabinets for manual hose system with screw down type valves

The screw down valve shall be positioned in such a way that there is at least 35 mm free space around the

external diameter of the hand wheel, when the valve is in any position from fully open to fully closed.

8.4 Form C cabinets

Cabinets for form C shall have a hole or holes in the base to allow drainage of water.

9 Materials
9.1 Resistance to external corrosion

Any metal parts shall provide adequate protection when coated parts are tested in accordance with B.1 and

uncoated parts are tested in accordance with B.2.

NOTE The advice of the hose systems supplier should be requested in cases of special corrosion risk.

after aging in accordance with C.
9.3 Resistance to corrosion of waterways

There shall be no significant corrosion defects and the mechanical operation of all working parts shall be

unimpaired when waterways are tested in accordance with D.

NOTE Where fire hose systems are connected to a public domestic water supply, the appropriate authority may

specify materials which are, or are not, acceptable to the authority.
10 Hydraulic properties
10.1 Resistance to internal pressure
Hose assemblies shall be designed for the following pressures:
a) maximum working pressure 1,2 MPa;
b) test pressure: 2,4 MPa;
