The project in brief

Frogner Hovedgaard is listed on the Norwegian Directorate of Cultural Heritage list of cultural heritage sites. The buildings were erected as a wood construction in 1825 – 1830 in Skien in the southern parts of Norway. As a part of the Norwegian cultural heritage, it was decided that Frogner Hovedgaard should be fire protected.

Due to laws and regulation regarding the renovation of such buildings, a system using small dimension pipes was requested and furthermore due to many non-heated areas, innovative systems utilizing watermist deluge systems where required. VID-Fire-Kill Model OH Nozzles for heated areas and VID Fire-Kill Model N-pipes was therefore a perfect match for the project requirements.

Why was a VID Fire-Kill solution chosen?

  • Small dimension pipes ensured fewer damages to the building,
  • Model OH nozzles with color finish ensure nice retrofit installation very little visible,
  • Model C-EL control valves and N-pipes ensure simple, sound and reliable protection in cold areas without risk of having the system water freezing,
  • Low water flow in case of fire would help damage the building less.

Some specifics

The non-heated areas were zone protected with open Model N-pipe Type 2V + BM-1 nozzles, and in case of fire smoke / flame detection would trigger the zone Model C-EL control valve. The entire attic are where zoned into 9 smaller zones.

Automatic nozzles Model OH-range where used in all the heated areas.
