New PDF edition of the LPC Sprinkler Rules launched by the Fire Protection Association

The Fire Protection Association has launched a new PDF edition of the LPC Sprinkler Rules manual which can be used on iPads and tablet devices, as well as on laptops and computers. The PDF edition reproduces the entire contents of the original Sprinkler Rules manual which the Fire Protection Association launched in 2015. Both the print and PDF editions incorporate the BS EN 12845 standard, supplemented with additional technical bulletins. The PDF edition also includes over 1,900 hot links enabling the viewer to quickly find related information. 


The LPC Rules for Automatic Sprinkler Installations 2015 incorporating BS EN 12845 is a comprehensive document on best practice engineering of fixed firefighting sprinkler systems in the UK. The document is aimed at sprinkler contractors, insurers, consultants, architects, local government and general engineers involved in the design, installation, service and maintenance of sprinkler systems. The document is split into three parts with part 1 covering BS EN 12845 ‘life safety’ minimum standards, part 2 technical bulletins for ‘property protection’ and part 3 providing additional associated information.


The Fire Protection Association developed the PDF edition in response to customers’ needing to access content whilst on site and to suit changing preferences in the way people digest content.


The PDF edition of the LPC Sprinkler Rules, which costs £349 + VAT or £299 + VAT for Fire Protection Association members, is encrypted and can be downloaded on up to two personal devices.


Dr Jim Glockling, the Fire Protection Association’s technical director comments:


“LPC Sprinkler Rules is the authoritative guide to best industry practice and is an essential reference tool for anyone designing, installing or maintaining sprinkler systems. It’s great to be able to make this valuable content more widely available digitally.”
