Bull Products Update From JCOP 9th Edition

UK CONSTRUCTION FIRE SAFETY UPDATES FROM JCOP 9TH EDITION

‘Fire Prevention on Construction Sites’ The Joint Code of Practice (JCOP) on the Protection from Fire of Construction Sites and Buildings Undergoing Renovation

The only significant change that has been made to JCOP is for a fully certified EN54 Fire alarm system in TAU’s (Temporary Accommodation Units) which are located

(a)  inside the building under construction/refurbishment;

(b)  inside another permanent building; or

(c)  within 10m of such building(s)

Bull Products have the perfect solution with the new EN54 Cygnus CYGHF system that can be linked to the Cygnus system on site.

 

This change can be found under heading

13.8 (under TEMPORARY BUILDINGS AND TEMPORARY ACCOMMODATION) Temporary buildings or temporary accommodation located:

must be fitted with fire detection systems complying with a recognised Category of installation as set out in BS 5839-1: Fire detection and alarm systems for buildings: Code of practise for system design, installation, commissioning and maintenance (ref 23). In the case of high fire risk sites, the fire detection system must be linked to the fire alarm system in the building on which is being undertaken and to an alarm receiving centre, unless there is a 24-hour site security presence on site. Components of automatic fire detection and alarm systems should be marked as complying with EN54 (ref 37).
