As an experienced partner in fire safety, Kiwa R2B applies a comprehensive approach to all relevant aspects of your foam extinguishing protection during a Foam Extinguishing System Inspection.
A foam extinguishing system is the most widely used fire protection system in storage facilities for flammable, toxic, caustic or other hazardous goods (as defined in the PGS 15 guideline). This could be either a small pesticides storage facility or large oil tanks on refineries. In addition to fire protection, safeguarding people and environment is an important objective of such systems.
Foam concentrate is added to fire extinguishing water. Systems are defined as a light, medium or heavy foam system depending on the type of foam concentrate.
All spaces protected by a foam extinguishing system in a building structure shall be a fire compartment. Structural requirements apply to these spaces. Therefore, in addition to system operation Kiwa R2B also assesses structural details and organizational provisions associated with a foam extinguishing system during a Foam Extinguishing Protection Inspection.
In short: Kiwa R2B identifies and inspects all aspects essential for effective foam extinguishing system operation. Kiwa R2B inspections are based on both the CCV inspection schemes as compliance with standards. Kiwa R2B also conducts random inspections for certification bodies.
