When compartments in motor vehicles parkings and storage garages are larger than 1,000 m2, and therefore do not comply with Bouwbesluit regulations, a CO/LPG detection system according to NEN 2443 is most likely mandatory in most municipalities.
A CO/LPG detection system is first in a series of technical measures to protect occupants and environment. This because it actuates evacuation alarm systems, longitudinal ventilation and impulse ventilation systems, pressurisation systems and external alarm reporting to a (fire brigade and/or private) alarm centre.
Regulations and unambiguous basic assumptions for CO/LPG detection systems and associated system components are largely not available for these protection systems. It is therefore important to have parties involved with sufficient knowledge about these systems. Kiwa R2B is your expert partner for NEN 2443 CO/LPG detection systems and associated systems.
Kiwa R2B reviews the CO/LPG detection system’s basic assumptions and design data to assess its protection objective. We also conduct inspections to determine whether systems installed including their maintenance and management comply with standards and required effectiveness.
