Building Heights & Rack Storage

This webinar will be an introduction to utilizing the storage chapters in NFPA 13, 2016 Edition to select the proper protection schemes for protecting rack stored commodities. This webinar will cover some of the relatively newer sprinklers available to protect higher levels of storage without in-rack sprinklers. It will also review important FM Global criteria on the protection of rack stored commodity. As the possibilities of rack storage configuration and commodity are almost endless, this webinar will provide an overview of the topic and show attendees where they may find additional information.

Connecting Actual Job Costs Back to Estimating

One of the biggest risks to a company in a low-margin construction economy is executing a project differently than how it was estimated (and vice versa). The best way to maintain profitability is to create field-friendly budgets, to aggressively track and manage direct costs, and to incorporate actual performance into future estimates.

OSHA's Silica in Construction Standard

This webinar will cover the recent changes to OSHA's Silica in Construction Standard with specific emphasis on concerns for fire sprinkler installation. Presented by Rob Agnew, CIH, Assistant Professor at Oklahoma State University. The presentation will include a basic overview of the hazards of respirable crystalline silica, basics of exposure controls, exposure monitoring, and the implementation of an exposure control plan. Specific details on points of concern for sprinkler installation will be presented along with strategies for silica exposure control in multi-employer worksites. This webinar would benefit fire sprinkler contractors.

Pipe Size Estimating & Quick Calculations

The task of creating a fire sprinkler system estimate requires that you be able to quickly create a conceptual plan of a project. As an alternative to doing a complete design and hydraulic analysis, this webinar will illustrate the use of the same principles needed in that approach while requiring only a fraction of the detailed information. This webinar will illustrate an organized worksheet for sizing the pipes in a tree, looped, or gridded system along with a description of its application, including examples of multiple types of systems. This process will be enough fun that you won’t feel like you’re doing any work at all.

Seismic Bracing: 2016 Edition Update

The 2016 edition of NFPA 13 contains modifications in the requirements for seismic protection of fire sprinkler systems.  Some of the revisions are editorial in nature, while others result in significant challenges to the designer and contractor. Those changes include clarification on allowable omission of lateral bracing, lowered capacity of post installed anchors in concrete, pipe stand design applications, an expansion of the seismic coefficient table, and clarification of long riser nipple issues.  This webinar will provide a brief overview of the changes.

Significant Changes to 2019 Edition of NFPA 20

The 2019 edition of NFPA 20 has incorporated many changes that allow fire pump manufacturers, installers, and inspection, testing, and maintenance personnel to use the latest technologies and best practices. New fire pump designs that include the use of variable speed pumps and controllers, components for vertical shaft turbine-type pumps, suction diffusers, and many other new devices are addressed. New protection schemes such as those for high rise and very high rise buildings are clarified. New allowances for providing remote monitoring, inspections, and testing devices are included. This webinar will outline and explain the most significant changes to this NFPA installation standard.
