New PDF edition of the LPC Sprinkler Rules launched by the Fire Protection Association

The Fire Protection Association (FPA), the UK’s national fire safety organisation, has launched a new PDF edition of the LPC Sprinkler Rules manual.

The FPA developed the PDF edition in response to customers’ needing to access content whilst on site and to suit changing preferences in the way people digest content.

The new edition reproduces all the original contents of the Sprinkler Rules manual, which the FPA launched in 2015, but in PDF format which makes it compatible on iPads and other tablet devices, laptops and computers. It is also encrypted and can be downloaded on up to two personal devices.

Another benefit of the PDF edition includes over 1,900 hot links enabling the viewer to quickly find related information.

Both the print and PDF editions incorporate the BS EN 12845 standard, supplemented with additional technical bulletins. The LPC Rules for Automatic Sprinkler Installations 2015 incorporating BS EN 12845 is a comprehensive document on best practice engineering of fixed firefighting sprinkler systems in the UK.

The document is aimed at sprinkler contractors, insurers, consultants, architects, local government and general engineers involved in the design, installation, service and maintenance of sprinkler systems. The document is split into three parts with part 1 covering BS EN 12845 ‘life safety’ minimum standards, part 2 technical bulletins for ‘property protection’ and part 3 providing additional associated information.

Technical Director of FPA, Dr Jim Glockling said: “LPC Sprinkler Rules is the authoritative guide to best industry practice and is an essential reference tool for anyone designing, installing or maintaining sprinkler systems. It’s great to be able to make this valuable content more widely available digitally.”
