The calculation of a fire extinguishing system in a warehouse depends on several factors, including the size of the warehouse, the materials stored, the environment and the requirements of local regulations and safety standards. Here are the general steps that will help you calculate the fire extinguishing system correctly:

  1. Fire risk Assessment: Identify potential sources of ignition in the warehouse, such as electrical appliances, equipment, materials, etc. Evaluate their probability of fire and the potential consequences of a fire.
  2. Determining the fire class: Considering the materials stored in the warehouse, determine the fire class in order to select the appropriate types of extinguishing agents.
  3. Choosing a fire extinguishing system: Consider different types of fire extinguishing systems, such as automatic systems (sprinkler systems, foam extinguishing systems), manual systems (fire cranes, fire extinguishers) and fire alarm systems. The choice will depend on the size and nature of the warehouse, as well as on the budget.
  4. Calculation of the required extinguishing units: Determine the number and location of sprinkler heads or fire extinguishers according to the size and characteristics of the warehouse. It is recommended to consult local regulations and standards for accurate recommendations on quantity and placement.
  5. Development of the installation scheme: Develop a plan for the installation of a fire extinguishing system, taking into account the optimal distribution of extinguishing agents and ensuring coverage of the entire warehouse area.
  6. Accounting for maintenance and training of personnel: Ensure regular maintenance and inspection of the fire extinguishing system, as well as train personnel in the proper use of fire extinguishers and other equipment in the event of a fire.
  7. Consultation with professionals: It is important to discuss your plans with professional engineers or fire safety specialists to ensure compliance with the requirements and ensure effective fire protection.
  8. Environmental considerations: Consider the environment when choosing a fire extinguishing system. For example, if the warehouse is located in an area with low water content, the use of water sprinklers may be limited. Consider alternative extinguishing agents such as gas or powder systems.
  9. Using smoke and heat sensors: Install smoke and heat sensors in the warehouse for early fire detection. This will help to reduce reaction time and reduce potential losses.
  10. Development of an evacuation plan: Together with the fire extinguishing system, develop an evacuation plan for warehouse personnel. Train the staff in evacuation procedures and make sure that sufficient fire warning equipment is installed in the warehouse.
  11. Consideration of specific requirements: If certain materials or goods with special fire safety requirements are stored in the warehouse (for example, flammable liquids or flammable gases), take these requirements into account when developing a fire extinguishing system.
  12. Ensuring access to the system: Ensure easy access to the fire extinguishing system for operational intervention in case of fire. Make sure that the sprinkler heads or fire extinguishers are not blocked or hidden by other objects.
  13. Test and Improvement Plan: Develop a plan for regular testing of the fire extinguishing system and its components. After each test, analyze the results and make the necessary improvements.
  14. Compliance with legislation and standards: Check that your fire extinguishing system meets all requirements of local legislation and industrial standards.
  15. Consultation with fire safety professionals: If you have any doubts or questions about the development or installation of a fire extinguishing system, consult with fire safety professionals or engineers. They can provide valuable guidance and help you ensure maximum fire protection in your warehouse.

Do not forget that an effective fire extinguishing system in a warehouse requires not only proper calculation, but also regular maintenance and staff training.
