The Special Occupancy Chapter of NFPA 13

Presented by Roland Asp, Manager of Installation Standards


NFPA 13 includes a chapter called “Specially Occupancy Requirements”. In the 2019 edition this is chapter 26. This chapter basically extracts fire sprinkler requirements from other NFPA standards for specific situations. For example, in facilities where there is a paint spray booth, there is a section that extracts applicable sprinkler requirements from NFPA 33, Standard for Spray Application Using Flammable or Combustible Materials. If your project includes a hypobaric chamber, Chapter 26 includes some important extracts from NFPA 99B, Standard for Hypobaric Facilities. The list goes on and Chapter 26 includes requirements from 36 separate NFPA standards.


This seminar will provide an overview of the requirements of this often-overlooked chapter and will familiarize the participant with the various NFPA standards that are brought into NFPA 13 by this chapter.
