SYSTEM INTERFACE TESTING
Where fire protection systems are interfaced to other systems, testing is required to confirm that each interface operates in accordance with the approved design.
System Interface Tests (also known as Full Function Fire Tests – FFFT) is where Bradbury consider all fire protection systems that interface with other systems, and test them accordingly to ensure that all systems function in accordance with the buildings approved Fire Matrix.
Automatic sprinkler and fire alarm systems, for example, when activated, may be arranged to automatically cause operation of fire and smoke hazard management systems, release fire doors, operate roof vents, shut down non-fire essential plant, and operate elevator override controls.
A systems interface test, may require the attendance during testing of technicians specializing in fire alarms, sprinklers, mechanical services, electrical power, and control, building management, etc. The interface test is not a commissioning test of each system; but rather to establish that each interface operates correctly on annual basis as per the requirements of AS 1851.
