Australia to require sprinklers in apartment buildings
The Australian Building Codes Board has announced that from May 2019 it will require sprinklers in apartment buildings of four storeys or more. Currently the height threshold for sprinklers is 25m. At the same time, Australia is introducing national standards for residential sprinkler systems, one is a standalone design, the other draws its water supply from the wet riser in the building.
