How Strong Do I Need to Build My Wall To Support A Clean Agent Sphere
When mounting cylinders to concrete masonry, brick walls, columns or poured concrete walls always:
Design Guidelines Spot Smoke Detectors:
For smooth ceiling applications, the distance between detectors shall not exceed their listed spacing. Detectors should be placed with one half the listed spacing from all walls or partitions. These rules of thumb are adjusted for other ceiling types and construction. Refer to NFPA 72 for specific instructions.
Design Guidelines For Air Sampling Smoke Detection:
Air sampling smoke detection pipe layout should follow manufacturer recommendations, which generally includes balanced pipe lengths, elbows and fittings. Sample ports should be spaced according to spot type detection guidelines.
Spaces dedicated for mission critical operation that require specialized fire protection systems must be sealed well enough to maintain design concentration for 10 minutes. This means all penetrations into the space must be sealed, doors must be fitted with sweeps and seals. Ceiling tiles must be installed and clipped in place within 8’ of all discharge nozzles.
Rooms protected by specialized fire protection systems may require additional venting to relieve pressures experienced during discharge. While this is always a consideration with inerting agents, it sometimes applies to chemical agents as well. To determine venting requirements, calculation tables are required.
