Sprinkler systems are reliable fire protection systems applied worldwide. A sprinkler system is designed to detect, signal and control a starting fire. In many cases only a few sprinklers can extinguish a fire. Kiwa R2B has extensive knowledge of and experience with automatic sprinkler systems and therefore has the expertise to conduct sprinkler system checks and inspections.
Because in general, most occupants have never experienced an automatic sprinkler system in action, they often have no knowlegde of its functioning, possibilities and limitations. It is erroneously thought that proper functioning of a sprinkler system is assured after it has been installed. However, sprinkler system protection is a customized solution with its optimal functioning dependant on numerous factors.
Like no other, Kiwa R2B can comprehensively explain this overall picture. As an inspection body, Kiwa R2B specializes in the assessment of sprinkler protection effectiveness. This does not only include the sprinkler system in isolation, but also structural and organizational conditions under which the system has to function. Kiwa R2B assesses and validates this entire process, from design to end-use, based on both the CCV inspection schemes as compliance with standards.
