CO alarm system regs.
#1
Does anyone know of any regs covering CO gas alarm panels and systems? I don't think there is a BS for these systems but are there any documents saying what should be checked? At what intervals etc?

the systems we have are generally CO sensors linked to a control panel (similar to a fire alarm panel) and operating either just fans to remove CO or sounders to ring at the same time. Generally used in logistics warehouses where vans drive inside the building...

BS 7346-7:2013 Components for smoke and heat control systems. Code of practice on functional recommendations and calculation methods for smoke and heat control systems for covered car parks is the only current BS I know of

Only covers car park systems intended to comply with Approved Document F Paragraphs 6.18-6.21 for ventilation of CO only as well as those intended to provide additional ventilation under Approved Document B for either smoke clearance for fire service operations or smoke control for means of escape.

This article talks about the subject a bit, but being 2004 predates BS7346-7 https://www.building.co.uk/car-park-vent...98.article

Page 36 of ADF links you to guidance covering these systems in warehouses.
