Inert Gas Suppression System Room Integrity Testing

Most Inert gas systems such as Inergen, IG55 and IG541 systems operate as total-flood applications. This means that an Inert System is calculated to work on the provision that the risk enclosure is ‘sealed’ to an acceptable level. Without this assurance of an adequate room seal; no Inert suppression system is guaranteed to operate correctly in a live situation. Each enclosure containing an Inert system should be subject to an annual room integrity test to comply with the relevant standard.

Gielle does not only design, supply and install some of the most technically advanced fire suppression systems available, we also test and maintain equipment to check your system is capable of responding to a fire emergency.

Your gas suppression system will only work effectively if the room containing your IT or electronic equipment has only limited leakage. If the room leaks, the fire suppression agent will escape before the fire is effectively controlled.

Building maintenance activities may also inadvertently create places where gases can leak. That is why World Standard AS1851-2005 “Maintenance of fire protection systems and equipment” requires an Enclosure Integrity Test each year.



Fan Door Integrity Test

Vigilant facility managers take their duty of care seriously and checks that all parts of the fire detection and suppression system are ready to respond to protect critical assets.

Our Room Integrity Testing calculates the leaktightness of a room. It predicts how long the extinguishing agent will remain at the correct concentration to effectively suppress the fire. Testing is quick and unintrusive. Room Integrity Testing can be organised at a time that will not disrupt your normal operations. It is an essential, yet simple, component of your fire protection regime.

Gielle Door Fan Test – easy, quick and reliable testing of room tightness
Quick and reliable extinguishing can be accomplished by building up and maintaining the required extinguishing concentration for a certain time. The room to be protected, therefore, needs to be sufficiently airtight. The Gielle Door Fan Test from Gielle offers a simple, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly method for measuring room tightness and can also be used to directly locate leaks.

Blower Door test
A blower door is a powerful fan that mounts into the frame of an exterior door. The fan pulls air out of the house, lowering the air pressure inside.

The higher outside air pressure then flows in through all unsealed cracks and openings.

The auditors may use a smoke pencil to detect air leaks. These tests determine the air infiltration rate of a building.

Blower doors consist of a frame and flexible panel that fit in a doorway, a variable-speed fan, a pressure gauge to measure the pressure differences inside and outside the home, and an airflow manometer and hoses for measuring airflow.
