 Fire Protection – Automatic Sprinkler Systems – Design and Installation Requirements
Scope of application
This Standard specifies requirements for design and installation of automatic fire-fightingsprinkler systems with water and foam (hereinafter called as sprinkler system) in new orrefurbished construction buildings.This Standard is also applied for sprinkler-control drencher systems, fire-detectors,automatic controls or manual controls.This Standard is not applied for fire-fighting systems for:-
Buildings with special functions and engineering equipment outside suchbuildings.-
Underground chambers of mine-ores industry-
Warehouses with commodities piled up on shelves higher than 5.5m.-
Fuel tanks

3 Terminology and definitions
This Standard applies the terminology and definitions in TCVN 6305:1997
General regulations4.1
The fire-fighting systems designed according to this Standard shall have manualcontrol.
The sprinkler system shall be so designed that they can perform both fire-fightingfunction and automatic fire-alarming function.
The sprinkler systems shall be designed on the technical basis of the production linewhich requires protection and economic-technical norms.
Classification of sprinkler system and design data5.1
System classification
The sprinkler system is classified on the basis of fire-incur risk rate at the buildingfacility and called accordingly (see 5.2) as follows:-
System for low fire-rate building-
System for average fire-rate building-
System for high fire-rate building
5.2 Building classification according to fire rates
The building classification according to fire rates is stipulated in Appendix A. AppendixA is not a complete list. When designing a building protection sprinkler system which isnot included in Appendix A, such building shall be converted to another listed itemwhich during fire situations similar status is shown. However, this should be confirmedby an authority prior to designing sprinkler system.
Types of systems
Types of sprinkler systems stipulated in this Standard are standard sprinkler systems anddrencher systems.
Standard sprinkler system
The standard sprinkler systems comprise the following:-
Wet pipework -
Alternately wet and dry pipework -
Either wet pipework or alternately wet & dry pipework, combined with theending part of dry pipework system.-
Wet pipework combined with ending part of alternate wet & dry pipework system.-
Dry pipework.
TCVN 7336:2003
Pre-activating system.
Wet pipework system
Wet pipework system is a standard sprinkler system which is frequently filled with water,having pressure at both upper and lower sides of the wet pipework alarm valve.The wet pipework system shall be installed in buildings where there are no risks of watergetting frozen in the pipes. If this condition is not ensured everywhere in the building,then at the locations where freeze may occur it is possible to combine the wet pipework with the ending part of the alternate wet & dry pipework, on the condition that thenumber of sprinklers therein shall not exceed the limits stated in, otherwise thewhole system installation shall be proceeded as the alternate dry & wet pipework.The sprinkler in wet pipework can be installed either upwards or downwards.The wet pipework shall be designed in such a manner that the number of sprinklerscontrolled by a valve (including the taps at the extended ending part) shall not exceedfollowing numbers:a) for low fire-rate buildings: 500b) for average and high fire rate buildings (including any sprinklers of low fire ratesystem) 1000When calculating the number of sprinklers in a mixed system including area with low firerates, average fire rates and/or high fire rates, the actual number of sprinklers in low firerate area shall be doubled. This quantity shall be added to the number of ejectors inaverage fire-rate area and/or high fire-rate area and total number of sprinklers shall notexceed 1000.For instance, in a system with 600 sprinklers for an average fire-rate area and 200sprinklers for a low fire-rate area, i.e 800 sprinklers in total, then the number of sprinklerstaken as above required shall be 1000, i.e. 600 + (200 x 2).
 Note: Number of sprinklers in confined areas, inside machinery or in similar areas canbe ignored when calculating total number of sprinklers for wet pipework system. Alternate dry & wet pipework
An alternate wet & dry pipework is a standard sprinkler system, including a mixedalarming valve or a combination including wet pipework alarm valve and dry pipework alarm valve, of which:-
In winter months, in cold areas where water in pipework can be frozen, thepipework above the mixed alarm valve or dry pipework alarm valve shall befed with compressed air, while the remaining part of the system below thevalve is fed with water under pressure; and-
In other time periods of the year, the system shall work as a wet pipework system as describe in
