Fire Protection Challenges for Architectural Features

Fire Protection Challenges for Architectural Features
The current building trends are outpacing the guidance of the NFPA 13 standard and listings of sprinklers. This webinar addresses these challenges such as high ceilings, cloud ceilings, slatted ceilings, integrated HVAC ceiling panels, concealed spaces, etc.

The NFPA 13 standard cannot be expected to address all, so there are some methods, approaches, and resources that can be deployed to keep the project on track.
