Antifreeze - Updates and Resolutions from NFPA

This previously recorded webinar discusses the NFPA has released their final decisions regarding the use of antifreeze in new and existing fire sprinkler systems. This class informs the participant about how and when antifreeze is permitted to be used. This class will discuss the
changes and Emergency Amendments made to the current NFPA standards governing all Fire Sprinkler Systems in regards to the use of Antifreeze Solutions.
The Committees for these documents have had to adjust their position on this issue more than once.
 
These changes affect the following NFPA documents:
  • NFPA 13 The Standard for the Installation Sprinkler Systems
  • NFPA 13R The Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems in Residential Occupancies Four Stories or Less in Height
  • NFPA 13D The Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems in One- and Two-Family Dwellings
  • NFPA 25 The Standard for the Inspection, Testing and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems
 
Upon completion of this lesson, participants will be able to:
  • Identify and describe the amount of antifreeze permitted in a fire sprinkler system.
  • Determine when antifreeze is permitted to be used.
  • Identify and describe ways to test antifreeze solutions for adequacy.
  • Determine the differences in the requirements for antifreeze use within the different NFPA Standards.

Consequences of Omitting Sprinklers from Concealed Spaces

From a prevously recorded webinar: This lesson will discuss the advantages and disadvantages and of omitting sprinklers in concealed spaces. It can be maddening trying to determine what the minimum remote area size permitted. We will discuss how section 8.15.1.2 ties in with the calculation section of 11.2.3.1.4. We will help you answer the question, “Will I need to use a minimum remote area of 3,000 square feet?”
 
Upon completion of this lesson, participants will be able to:
  • Clearly identify the section of NFPA 13 that applies to any concealed space.
  • Determine if sprinklers are required in any concealed space
  • Determine if the calculation area must be 3,000 square feet or larger in size
  • Utilize NFPA 13 calculation method to achieve the most cost effective fire sprinkler system where concealed spaces are present.

sprinkCAD- sprinkCODE Determines Protection Options for High Pile Storage per NFPA 13

From a previously recorded webinar:

With our myriad of choices and volumes of codes it is not difficult to see how a fire sprinkler designer could spend a great deal of time finding the most efficient and effective solution for  a design. Errors can result in inaccurate bids, rejected plans, improperly approved plans or faulty  installations. SprinkCODE presents a solution to this dilemma by filtering quickly through the many choices of tables and available options of NFPA 13 and presenting these options in a clear manner showing the necessary steps to a suggested solution. Join us in a presentation of this powerful tool and see how much easier this essential task can be.
