FM Approval: Standard 7745
FM Global insures tens of thousands of commercial and industrial facilities. Their risk management has been concerned with the increased risk of a fire getting out of control in buildings if diesel fuel is present, and particularly if it has leaked on the floor. FM Global (the insurance arm) asked FM Approvals(the engineering approvals arm) to develop a new standard for diesel leak detection systems. FM Approvals was aware of TT–FFS from previous hazardous area approvals and asked for Tyco Thermal Controls input on the new standard. The standard was published December of 2009. Tyco Thermal Controls immediately applied to have TT–FFS and TT5000 considered under the new standard. They are now approved under this standard.
