Installation of Sprinkler Systems (NFPA 13) 2019 Edition – Storage Class

NFPA13 20 25 02The NFPA 13 is a complex document filled with requirements for the design and installation of fire sprinkler systems. It can be especially confusing for many when it comes to storage protection requirements due in part to the variety of commodity classifications, storage arrangements and options, as well as the protection solutions associated with different sprinkler technologies (standard sprinklers, CMDA and ESFR options) with and without requirements for installing in-rack sprinklers.

This unique storage class will be primarily focused on sprinkler protection requirements for storage occupancies and applications. This program will introduce participants to sprinkler system design requirements for storage occupancies with a focus on commodity classifications, design methods and sprinkler types used for storage facilities. Starting with proper identification of commodity classifications and the application of sprinkler types, we will get deeper into the understanding how and why to select one or more of the options for fire protection provided in newest edition of NFPA 13. This interactive seminar will include a wide variety of group activities to demonstrate the nuances applied to storage occupancies. We will explore in depth, the design principals required to identify the most cost effective, code complaint fire protection solutions using real life scenarios. Each case study will be discussed and during the exercise’s you now have the possibility to discuss your options with a committee member of the NFPA 13.

Thursday - Friday
