list of Australian Standards® relevant to Fire Safety & Protection. |
by John Carmichael
Note: There are no free downloads for these standards, they can be obtained
online from www.SaiGlobal.com, or the FPA Australia Online Sales Centre.
Please note we do not offer legal advice on whether your custom solution meets the Standards, you need the services of a Fire engineer for that. We can inspect your premises for compliance with the fire standards, and issue an annual fire safety statement.
There are usually three Australian Standards that apply to any fire safety product:
one governing how they are constructed, one about how the product is used or
installed, and one that indicates how they must be serviced or maintained. So
for example fire
extinguishers are manufactured according to AS1841, selected and installed
to AS 2444, and maintained to AS1851. Fire
hose reels are manufactured according to AS1221, installed to AS 2441, and
maintained to AS1851. To claim compliance with an Australian standard, you must
submit a product to an officially accredited Certification Body approved by
the Joint Accreditation System for Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ).
||Fire Hose Reels
All our extinguishers and hose reels are also certified by ACTIVFIRE.
The CSIRO ActivFire® Scheme is an Australian Government Agency who verify
& certify fire products which may be installed into Federal and State
All our products are fully compliant and tested by BSI. All our certified
products carry the BSI
and JAS-ANZ logos, and these two marks ensure that you receive the
highest quality products, tested to Australian Standards.
