Electrical Circuit Integrity Systems Applications
Posted Sep 23, 2016
Where are 2-hour fire-rated electrical circuit integrity systems typically located?
“These systems are primarily installed in mixed occupancy high-rise buildings, and in tunnels, bridges, and other commercial infrastructures. In many circumstances, the referenced systems exist in conjunction with other fire mitigation system options, which are not in question. Within a building or structure, the locations of these fire-resistive circuit cable systems are typically found as a part of the following life safety installations:
Fire pump – Feeder / Controls
Smoke control equipment
Command center critical systems
Pressurized stairway systems
Smoke management systems
Fire alarm systems
Electrical Equipment Rooms – Feeders / Service
Emergency Generators and Standby Power Systems” –UL Code Authorities / Fire Code
