Benefits of Tracked ChangesChoosing Tracked Changes saves you time when trying to identify differences between the current version of the standard and its previous version. Additions, deletions, and other content revisions are all clearly displayed as underlined or strikethrough text, reducing the risk of you missing a key change.Overview What is BS EN 15004-8 - Gas extinguishing systems for IG-100 extinguishant about?  BS EN 15004 is a European Standard on gaseous extinguishing media and systems that are a part of fixed firefighting systems. The main objective of the BS EN 15004 series is to ensure gas extinguishing systems’ performance plays a positive role during a fire emergency.  BS EN 15004-8 is the eighth part of the multi-series specifies requirements for gaseous fire-extinguishing systems, with respect to the IG-100 extinguishant. It includes details of physical properties, specification, usage, and safety.  BS EN 15004-8 is applicable for systems operating at nominal pressures of 200 bar at 15 °C and 300 bar at 15 °C. This does not preclude the use of other systems, although design data for other pressures are not available at this time.  Who is BS EN 15004-8 - Gas extinguishing systems for IG-100 extinguishant for?  BS EN 15004-8 on gas extinguishing systems for IG-100 extinguishant is relevant to:  Manufacturers of fixed firefighting equipment  Manufacturers of gas extinguishing systems   Product designers  Entities involved in fire safety engineering  Fire safety department   Why should you use BS EN 15004-8- Gas extinguishing systems for IG-100 extinguishant?  A gas extinguishing system is a fire extinguishing system that extinguishes the fire with the help of a gaseous extinguishing agent through oxygen displacement.  BS EN 15004-8 provides guidelines on system design, including physical properties of extinguishing system, use of IG-100 systems, the safety of personnel, extinguishant quantity, and environmental properties.  BS EN 15004-8 is helpful as the adoption of these requirements and specifications can aid in protecting safety personnel from hazards arising from:   The extinguishant itself   The combustion products of the fire   Compliance with BS EN 15004-8 is beneficial as the properties, design, performance requirements and environmental guidelines enable you to establish efficient firefighting systems during hazardous situations, that are devoid of product failures, and contribute to a successful fire response.
