Sprinkler Protection of Storage (2 day seminar)


Storage occupancies present unique challenges to sprinkler system design and installation. NFPA 13 has complex and varying rules for the protection of stored commodities. This fast paced and interactive seminar will explore these requirements as they are related to types of commodities, storage configurations and special storage situations. The participant will be guided through a series of decisions and requirements that lead to compliance with NFPA 13 and ensure the system will operate properly when needed.


At the conclusion of this seminar, participants will be able to:

  1. Recognize the basic differences among various commodities stored in accordance with NFPA 13.
  2. Identify the general parameters used in the storage of all commodities in accordance with NFPA 13, including Class I-IV commodities, Plastics, mixed commodities, & idle pallets.
  3. Recognize the method of determining classifications for unknown commodities. 
  4. Discuss how the classification of a commodity can be affected by its storage on different type pallets 
  5. Describe how changes in a commodity affect the owner’s responsibilities under NFPA 25.
