This Standard sets out minimum criteria for the design, installation and commissioning of combined sprinkler and hydrant systems (including fire hose reels where appropriate) in multistorey buildings greater than two storeys in height.
1 The installation of a combined system to this Standard is a choice; it is not mandatory to install a combined sprinkler and hydrant sprinkler system in multistorey buildings.
2 This Standard does not apply to buildings less than three storeys in height, for example, large floor area factories and warehouses where the sprinkler and hydrant systems are normally provided to AS 2118.1 and AS 2419.1 respectively. Such buildings may have an in-ground common fire ring main (see AS 2118.1).
3 This Standard should not be used for sprinkler systems classified as high hazard (see AS 2118.1 and Appendix M).
