    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements for installation within properties of fire hydrants which may, in certain cases, be supplemented by hydrants installed by water supply authorities on street mains.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out requirements for the design, installation, and commissioning of fire hydrant systems within properties. Requirements for maintenance of fire hydrant installations are given in AS 1851.4.NOTES:1 Appendix A sets out a flow chart for water supply system design, and Appendix B provides guidance on fire hydrant installations for special hazards.2 Appendix C was written in an advisory manner as a guide to the use of the Standard. The Appendix also contains charts and information for fire hose losses and nozzle discharge calculations.Comments to a particular Clause retain the clause number preceded by a 'C' i.e. C1.12 is a comment relating to Clause 1.12. A 'C' Clause is informative and not normative.3 This Standard will be referenced in the Building Code of Australia by way of BCA Amendment 7 intended for publication in October 1994, therefore superseding the previous editions of AS 2419.1 - 1988 and 1991 which will be withdrawn 12 months from the date of publication of this edition. Users are advised that when BCA Amendment 7 is issued, it will not necessarily be gazetted in each State/Territory at the time of printing.
