Reports the agreement between the British fire Protection Association (BFPSA) and BSRIA to publish a new guidance document for the construction of enclosures protected by gaseous fire extinguishing systems. States that sections of the guide are already drafted, with a planned publication date of late summer 2002 to coincide with the revision of BS 6266, the Code of practice for fire protection for electronic installations. States that, entitled 'Guide to the integration of fire protection systems', the document will enable building services designers to quickly familiarise themselves with the key issues surrounding fire protection and in particular those using fixed suppression systems, and how to successfully integrate them into the total service provision of a protected space or area. Presents a summary of the contents of the Guide.
