Abstract: The performance of three types of active fire protection engineering systems in controlling office fires will be evaluated in this paper. These are the sprinkler system, water mist system and total gas flooding system with heptafluoropropane. Experiments on an office fire with such systems were carried out in a full-scale burning facility at a remote area in China. A base scenario in an office fire was identified first. A chair, a desk with paper and books on top, a computer box and a cupboard were placed in a burn room. The arrangement was ignited by simulated accidental fire conditions and burnt to give flashover. Their heat release rates were studied. The effects of activating the sprinkler system, water mist system and total gas flooding system with heptafluoropropane [HFC227ea with trade name Fire Master 200 (FM200)] on the base scenario under a flashover fire due to accident were then assessed. The heat release rate curves after operating the system were measured.
