I am not sure if I mentioned this elsewhere but you can download a PDF of the draft regs from the BS website. They are looking for feedback before end of August. Some interesting fire stuff including a pointer towards AFDs.

I didn't understand your reply, Brian, and I have not even had my medicinal nightcap yet.  Maybe it will be clear when i do.

Yes, I know all that Bri, but what did you mean "probably  not".

Gents,

Just for info, It is not a pointer to Automatic Fire Detectors.....(My preferred type of AFD being a Fire Alarm Guy), but rather arc fault detection devices (AFDDs) which I believe are generally part of the electrical supply circuit protection.

The draft pretty much states for Fire Alarm Systems refer to BS5839.

Haven't read it, but I will.  I have heard that after the adoption of metal consumer units under the 17th version lots of Sparkys are getting excited about blobbing intumescent mastic around any holes/gaps in them...
