class Ifc4::IfcFireSuppressionTerminal : public Ifc4::IfcFlowTerminal

A fire suppression terminal has the purpose of delivering a fluid (gas or liquid) that will suppress a fire. A fire suppression terminal provides for all forms of sprinkler, spreader and other form of terminal that is connected to a pipework system and intended to act in the role of suppressing a fire.

HISTORY New entity in IFC2x4

Type Use Definition IfcFireSuppressionTerminal defines the occurrence of any fire suppression terminal; common information about fire suppression terminal types is handled by IfcFireSuppressionTerminalType. The IfcFireSuppressionTerminalType (if present) may establish the common type name, usage (predefined type), properties, materials, ports, composition, assignments, and representations. The IfcFireSuppressionTerminalType is attached using the IfcRelDefinesByType objectified relationship and is accessible by the IsTypedBy inverse attribute. If the IfcFireSuppressionTerminalType has ports or aggregated elements, such objects are reflected at the IfcFireSuppressionTerminal occurrence using the IfcRelDefinesByObject relationship.

Property Use Definition The property sets relating to this entity are defined by IfcPropertySet and attached by the IfcRelDefinesByProperties relationship. They are accessible by the IsDefinedBy inverse attribute. Property sets may also be specified at the IfcFireSuppressionTerminalType, defining the common property data for all occurrences of the same type. They are then accessible by the IsTypedBy inverse attribute pointing to IfcFireSuppressionTerminalType.HasPropertySets. If both are given, then the properties directly defined at IfcFireSuppressionTerminal override the properties defined at IfcFireSuppressionTerminalType. Refer to the documentation at the supertype IfcFlowTerminal and ancestors for inherited property set definitions. The following property set definitions are applicable to this entity: (All Types)

Pset_FireSuppressionTerminalTypeCommon (PSET_TYPEDRIVENOVERRIDE)


Pset_FireSuppressionTerminalTypeBreechingInlet (PSET_TYPEDRIVENOVERRIDE)


Pset_FireSuppressionTerminalTypeFireHydrant (PSET_TYPEDRIVENOVERRIDE)


Pset_FireSuppressionTerminalTypeHoseReel (PSET_TYPEDRIVENOVERRIDE)


Pset_FireSuppressionTerminalTypeSprinkler (PSET_TYPEDRIVENOVERRIDE)

Quantity Use Definition The quantities relating to this entity are defined by IfcElementQuantity and attached by the IfcRelDefinesByProperties relationship. They are accessible by the IsDefinedBy inverse attribute. The following base quantities are defined and shall be exchanged with the IfcElementQuantity.Name = ‘BaseQuantities’. Other quantities, being subjected to local standard of measurement, may be defined with another string value assigned to Name. In this case a valid value for MethodOfMeasurement shall be provided.


Material Use Definition The material of the IfcFireSuppressionTerminal is defined by IfcMaterialConstituentSet or as a fallback by IfcMaterial, and attached by the RelatingMaterial attribute on the IfcRelAssociatesMaterial relationship. It is accessible by the HasAssociations inverse attribute. Material information can also be given at the IfcFireSuppressionTerminalType, defining the common attribute data for all occurrences of the same type. The following keywords for IfcMaterialConstituentSet.MaterialConstituents[n].Name shall be used:

Body: The primary material from which the object is constructed. Deflector: The material used to construct the deflector plate.

Port Use Definition The distribution ports relating to the IfcFireSuppressionTerminal are defined by IfcDistributionPort and attached by the IfcRelConnectsPortToElement relationship. If the fire suppression terminal occurrence is defined by IfcFireSuppressionTerminalType, then the port occurrences must reflect those defined at the IfcFireSuppressionTerminalType using the IfcRelDefinesByObject relationship. Ports are specific to the IfcFireSuppressionTerminal PredefinedType as follows indicated by the IfcDistributionPort Name, PredefinedType, and FlowDirection:


Hose (FIREPROTECTION, SOURCE): Fire protection.


Line (FIREPROTECTION, SINK): Fire protection.
