The European association Insurance Europe (IE) has issued three new guidelines for the planning and installation of gas extinguishing systems. These were drawn up on the basis of three current, practically oriented VdS guidelines:
The IE standard CEA 4007:2018-03 “CO2 Fire Extinguishing Systems – Planning and installation” is based on the guideline VdS 2093 “CO2 Fire Extinguishing Systems, Planning and Installation”; the IE standard CEA 4008:2018-03 “Gas Extinguishing Systems Using Non-liquefied Inert Gases – Planning and Installation” on the guideline VdS 2380 “Fire Extinguishing Systems using non-liquefied Inert Gases, Planning and Installation”; and the IE standard CEA 4045: 2018-03 “Gas Extinguishing Systems Using Halocarbon Gases – Planning and Installation” on the guideline VdS 2381 “Fire Extinguishing Systems using Halocarbon Gases, Planning and Installation.”
Furthermore, all guidelines include the VdS guideline VdS 3518 on safety and health protection. The background: There are currently no internationally uniform standards for safety and health protection, and in some European countries appropriate regulations are lacking entirely. With the introduction of the CEA standards, the requirements defined in the VdS guideline VdS 3518 can now be applied throughout Europe.
