The fire safety engineering (FSE) has improved the design of many industrial systems. In this study, the FSE approach is applied to an inventory of plastic materials to determine the best design solutions for the sprinklers nozzles used. In particular it is demonstrated the safety equivalence between the sprinklers’ nozzles imposed by the European norms and the ones imposed by the American norms. This result leads to a more efficient way to design the extinguishing systems for the warehouses.

Abstract

The fire safety engineering (FSE) has improved the design of many industrial systems. In this study, the FSE approach is applied to an inventory of plastic materials to determine the best design solutions for the sprinklers nozzles used. In particular it is demonstrated the safety equivalence between the sprinklers’ nozzles imposed by the European norms and the ones imposed by the American norms. This result leads to a more efficient way to design the extinguishing systems for the warehouses.
