Landing valves may be installed in different ways and altitudes and for yielding varying output of water. . CED 22’ FOREWORD This Indian Standard ( Third Revision ) was adopted by the Bureau of Indian Standards. the design of these valves has to be compact so as not to cause any obstruction to the passage where these may be installed. requiring different shape and sizes. These are primarily intended for being installed at the staircase landing at each floor level. The landing valves are sometimes also referred to as internal hydrants because these are usually fitted inside the buildings for wet hydrant system. accordance with IS 2 : 1960 ‘Rules for rounding off numerical values ( revised)‘. cant places retained in the rounded off value should be the same as that of the standard. This standard was first published in 1969 and revised subsequently in 1977 and 1983. is complied with. expressing the result of a test or analysis. from where fire-hose could be laid out by the fire brigade or trained men for fighting fire on the concerned floor. Because of this. This revision has been prepared in order to update the provisions of the standard which has been done for incorporating the amendments and modified figures.Fire Fighting Sectional Committee. Two types which are mostly used have been covered in this standard. The landing valves when used for sea water should not be made of aluminium alloy. observed or calculated. the shall be rounded off in The number of sign& specified value in this For the purpose of deciding whether a particular requirement of this standard final value. The composition of committee responsible for the preparation of this standard is given in Annex B. after the draft finalized by the Fire Fighting Sectional Committee had been approved by the Civil Engineering Division Council.
