BS5839 is the engineering British Standard that guides fire professionals as well as users of fire detection systems. It is a code of practice for system design, installation, commissioning and maintenance.
EMS Radio Fire and Security Systems have encapsulated and interpreted the key elements in an easy to use app, allowing users to reference some of the important essentials when considering fire detection design and application.
This first version also includes additional information and guidance on related subjects such as the reduction of false alarms, which is currently a high profile across the entire fire industry, as well as tools to help identify IP ratings.
There are also a number of external links to ensure that you have the latest information at your fingertips. Additionally there is specific advice on wireless fire detection and EN54-25, the pan European standard applicable to all wireless based fire systems.
This phone app is intended as a guide to BS5839 and should not be used as a substitute for the standard itself. EMS would always recommend that any person working with Fire Alarm systems is familiar with the full British Standard.
