An Enclosure Integrity Test is a mandatory commissioning function for any gaseous extinguishing system that complies with ISO 14520, NFPA 2001, EN 15004 & AS ISO 14520. Confirming whether the enclosure that is being protected will maintain the suppression agent for a minimum duration of 10 minutes is a critical part of the overall system performance.
A gaseous extinguishing system is typically designed to extinguish a fire after initial discharge and with a well-sealed enclosure will maintain an extinguishing concentration for a minimum duration to prevent re-flash of the fire.
This allows time for fire services, site emergency response personnel, and safety officers to prepare and evaluate the fire situation and take control of the fire emergency after the fire extinguishing system has done its job.
