Is there a specific sprinkler design standard or have tests undertaken on (very) localised deluge systems that have been installed to provide additional protection to an individual (or group of individual) fire doors? Specifically, front entrance doors in PB blocks of flats. If so, can you point me in the direction of the results, or current standards please.`

I can see that some similar tests have been undertaken on otherwise non-FR glazing systems, but couldn't find any links to timber (or composite) materials. 

Thanks

Madness indeed, have you tried to purchase a FED this week though...? The idea is probably only as half-baked as most of the doors on the market.

NFPA are bound to have a standard that addresses this type of issue, if not this specific one (sprinklers solve all fire safety problems in their world).  List here: https://www.nfpa.org/codes-and-standards/all-codes-and-standards/list-of-codes-and-standards.

Barking mad idea, by the way (IMHO)...

Let's do the time warp.

I'll get my stockings.
