Description

This Standard specifies requirements for the design, installation, commissioning and testing of fire hydrant installations. It applies to on-site fire hydrant installations, that is, fire hydrant installations used to protect buildings, structures, storage yards, marinas and associated moored vessels, wharves and plant. 

Where a street fire hydrant(s) is to be used in lieu of an on-site feed fire hydrant(s), this Standard specifies requirements for its location, available pressure and flow as conditions for its inclusion in the designed fire hydrant installation. 

Scope

This Standard is not applicable to the design or performance of water agency town mains and street hydrants.

The flow requirements detailed in this Standard, having been based on the floor area or volume of a building, are intended to provide sufficient water to enable firefighting operations to commence at a single location within a building or site. Where a risk assessment of a building or site determines that multiple ignitions or that rapid fire growth and spread is probable, then additional provisions have to be considered for inclusion.

This Standard does not specify requirements for fire hydrant installations in special hazard areas.

NOTES: 

  1. For guidance on means of demonstrating compliance with this Standard, see Appendix A.
  2. For information and guidance on fire hydrant installations in special hazard areas, see Appendix B.
  3. In circumstances where this Standard does not apply, the principles detailed in this Standard may be used as guidance for the design of a fire hydrant system in consultation with the relevant stakeholders.
  4. Manufacturers making a statement of compliance with this Australian Standard on a product or on packaging or promotional material are advised to ensure that such compliance is capable of being verified.
