3 Terminology and definitions
This Standard applies the terminology and definitions in TCVN 6305:1997
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
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.
