Sprinkler System Installation Requirements (NFPA 13-Chapter 8)

There are hundreds of types of sprinklers in use today. Determining where to locate them can be a complex task. They need to be spaced properly and installed in specific locations to ensure coverage of the protected area and located far enough away from obstructions to ensure that the spray pattern can adequately develop and control or suppress a fire. The rules that govern this complex matrix of decisions are found in Chapter 8 of NFPA 13 on Installation Requirements. This fast paced and interactive seminar will guide the participant through series of decisions and requirements that lead to compliance with NFPA 13 and ensure the system will operate properly when needed.

Learning Outcomes:
At the conclusion of this seminar the participant will be able to:

1. Discuss how the Occupancy Classification drives sprinkler system installation requirements.
2. Describe the process for selecting sprinklers for installation.
3. Discuss the effects of obstructions to sprinkler spray and how to avoid them.
4. Identify the specific installation requirements for various types of sprinklers
5. Identify the locations where sprinklers can be omitted

Rough & Final Inspections for Fire Sprinkler Systems


This one day seminar provides attendees with vital information on how to conduct the field inspections for new fire sprinkler and standpipe systems.

Fire sprinklers and standpipes are installed in stages and inspections are required before commencing to the next stage. The codes require periodic on-site inspections as the work progresses, to be installed according to the approved construction documents. This work is required to be inspected and approved before being covered or before the system is commissioned. This course points out the visual and physical inspection requirements of the latest codes and standards.

Bring latest edition of NFPA 13, NFPA 14 and IBC or IFC to presentation.
