BS 8519

A new BS 8519, which is the code of practice for 'Selection and installation of fire-resistant power and control cable systems for life safety, fire-fighting and other critical applications.', was released in 2020.

The original BS 8519:2010 only required an ATS to have a By-pass switch. The new standard requires that Automatic Transfer Switches are Class PC with Motorised Switches and a By-pass switch.

We still manufacture the original 2010 (Class CC) specification as not all customers specify BS 8159 for Life Safety ATS.

For prices of Life Safety ATS Class PC to BS 8519:2020 or Premium ATS Class PC please call the office.
