Ambiguities in NFPA 13

Ambiguities in NFPA 13
Whether it’s a tortured sentence or simply poor directions, the contractor has to figure it out. Join us for a webinar on the ambiguities in NFPA 13, Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems.

There are criteria within NFPA 13 that leaves many wondering what is actually required. 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.

Learning Objective

Upon completion of this webinar attendees will be able to identify criteria that warrants attention and potential discussions with your AHJ.
