New procedure for the fitting of data plates to LPCB approved fire sprinkler tanks

rsz logo 15


We would like to inform customers of a change in procedures relating to the fitting of tank data plates on LPCB approved tanks. Fitting of tank data plates can be carried out only when a tank has been filled with water and commissioned as part of the fire sprinkler system.  Documentary proof has to be provided that commissioning of the tank has taken place.  Once we have received documentary proof from a customer, the date of commissioning of the tank can be imprinted on the tank data plate and it can be supplied and fitted to the tank.  Information relating to the fitting of data plates, will be provided in line with the project specific installation and commissioning procedures.

New procedure

Following the completion of construction of a fire tank, in order to date imprint and despatch the tank data plate, we will require the following information from our customers:

  • A dated photograph of the tank contents gauge showing that the tank is full of water
  • Written confirmation that the tank has held water for a minimum period of 12 hours

For ease of installation a straightforward method of fitting the data plate will be provided.
