This research report has been developed to provide background support for areas of the AFAC guideline. AFAC members and CSIRO have developed the AFAC guideline “Bushfire spray systems for the protection from ember attack” to provide guidance to the Australian community when considering or installing a bushfire spray system. This report has been developed to provide a science bases and discussion for positions taken in the draft guideline. The analysis will address those sections of the guideline where concern has been raised during the drafting process as to its appropriateness. The areas requiring analysis are: • Water supply duration • Combustibility of tanks • Automatic activation requirements • Pump performance under adverse conditions • Pipe material selection • Pipe location • Water source/quality • Spray nozzle design and performance • Spray system to protect against surrounding infrastructure ignition
