5.2.1.6.2. Provision for Expansion, Contraction and Anchor Points


The design of the fire main shall utilise the axial and angular capability of Victaulic type couplings to
cater for the thermal and pressure induced expansion and contraction of the main. For axial
movements the gap between pipe ends shall be pre-set before clamping and provision for expansion
shall be made by changes of direction of the pipe lines.
Allowance shall be made for expansion and contraction in situations where axial movement or
changes of direction are not adequate. Bellows type compensators shall be used that are flanged
and appropriate to the service for which they are to be installed. They shall be of the articulated or
angular type as recommended by a specialist expansion compensator manufacturer. If necessary
suitable purpose made guides shall be installed and fixed in accordance with the specialist
recommendations to ensure that expansion takes place in the correct alignment.
Adequate provision shall be made at all connections to equipment and appliances to minimise stress
arising from contraction and expansion.
Pipe anchors shall be provided as necessary to transfer unbalanced forces to the structure or
prevent items of plant and valves from carrying external forces. Anchor braces shall be installed in
the most effective manner to obtain the required rigidity. Guides shall be provided independent of
the anchors for expansion joints to prevent buckling.
5.2.1.7. Earth Bonding
Earth bonding bosses shall be welded to the pipe prior to galvanising. The boss shall be drilled and
tapped to accept a 10mm threaded bolt and have a machined flat face to accept an earthing lug. The

coupling to meet the requirements of BS 7671: Requirements for electrical installations. IET Wiring
Regulations.
5.2.1.8. Buried Sections of the Fire Main
The fire main pipe between the tunnel portals and the Kahramaa connection points shall be cast in
or buried 1m below ground level in accordance with Design Manual for Roads and Bridges, Volume
2, Section 2, BD78/99: Section 8.38.
The conditions for the fire main shall be considered as aggressive even if the pipework is cast into
concrete and or buried. To prevent corrosion of the pipework sections, they shall be externally
coated with zinc to minimum of 200g/m2 and 2 coats of bitumen paint to provide a further 70um
dry film thickness. Internally the pipes will be coated with a sulphate resisting cement lining. On
installation the pipes will be wrapped in polythene sleeving between pipe ends and the sleeve ends
and pipe couplings shall be tape wrapped in accordance with the requirements in BS EN 598: Ductile
iron pipes, fittings, accessories and their joints for sewerage applications. Requirements and test
