Duct Smoke Detector Requirements
I have been asked (it’s a continuing education thing that my company is encouraging us to pursue) to learn more about fire detection and alarm systems, and to pass on what I learn to the rest of the group. Not an evil pursuit, I suppose, since fire alarm stuff is not a strong suit of mine, and I could stand some “learnin” on this subject. The specific question I am pursuing at the moment is, “When is fire detection (i.e., duct smoke detectors) required for mechanical equipment.”
Can anyone offer suggestions on information sources?
