Portable Fire Extinguishers means a portable device containing an extinguishing

agent that can be expelled under pressure for the purpose of suppressing or extinguishing a fire. The device must be listed by a nationally recognized testing laboratory. The device must bear a manufacturer’s name and serial number. The listings, approvals, and serial numbers may be stamped on the manufacturer’s identification and instruction plate or on a separate plate of the testing laboratory soldered or attached to the extinguisher shell in a

permanent manner set forth by the listing or approving organization.

Pre-Engineered Fire Suppression Systems means any system having pre-

determined flow rates, nozzle pressures, and quantities of an extinguishing agent. These systems have the specific pipe size, maximum and minimum pipe lengths, flexible hose

specifications, number of fittings, and number and types of nozzles prescribed by a nationally recognized testing laboratory. The hazards protected by these systems are

specifically limited as to the type and size by the testing laboratory based upon actual fire

tests. Limitations on hazards that can be protected by these systems are contained in the manufacturer’s installation manual, which is referenced as part of the listing.
