AF-X and Dutch Federation of Security on fire safety
Our role as manufacturer of high quality aerosol fire extinguishing generators is to support our distributors over the world getting local approvals or giving input for national guidelines.
In the Netherlands AF-X Systems has delivered information for the set up the renewed Specific Safety Information guidelines for extinguishing systems. This guideline is a handy tool for facility managers for research regarding the use or requirements for different kinds of extinguishing methodes.
Revised edition of SVI-guideline (2020)
Recently the revised version of the guideline ‘Specific Safety Information (SVI), Safety aspects VBB systems (fixed fire management and fire extinguishing systems’) was published. The guideline is better known as ‘SVI guideline’. In this fifth revised edition (2020) The guideline has been amended with textual improvements, water mist has been added and some stated values have been revised in line with international standards and guidelines.

The guideline, drawn up by the Dutch Federation of Security  and better known as the ‘SVI guideline’, provides information about the safety aspects of automatic extinguishing systems and is part of fire prevention as described in the Working Conditions Act. The safety data sheets from the 1990s and the international standards and guidelines form the basis of this practical reference work for, among others, the facility manager. In addition to information about the installations and the extinguishing agents released, the directive lays down minimum requirements for safety, quality and measures to control damage and risks to the health of persons when these installations come into effect. The SVI sheet is not about sprinkler systems.
