Ambiguities in NFPA 13, 2016 Ed.


Kevin Hall


Created for Fitters and CAL FIRE Approved. There are criteria within NFPA 13 that leaves many wondering what is actually required. Whether it’s a tortured sentence or simply poor directions, you have to figure it out.
For example, when the aisles between racks are too narrow, we are to treat it as a multiple-row rack. What does that tell us regarding the placement of in-rack sprinklers? Other installation topics will include obstruction rules for CMSA, concealed spaces with TJIs, and floating clouds. A discussion on design topics will include when the definitions for commodity classification do not apply, going up the design curves, and the owner’s certificate.

Upon completion of this webinar, participants should be able to:

1.    Identify the difference between quick response and fast response elements in a sprinkler.
2.    Determine when residential and quick response sprinklers can be mixed in the same compartment or area.
3.    Explain when sprinklers are allowed to be omitted in bathrooms, closets, combustible spaces, and other areas.
