The new 2016 residential standards, NFPA 13R and NFPA 13D, introduce some clarifications of existing requirements as well as some notable new ones such as bringing language regarding architectural features in NFPA 13D from the Annex to the body of the standard. Other key changes include language dealing with the replacement of residential sprinklers listed for design densities less than 0.05 gpm/ft2; reinstalling dry sprinklers; sprinklers outside of dwelling units; sprinkler-protected glass; and drains for trapped sections of pipe. This presentation will review these and other highlights of the residential updates from 2013 to 2016 editions.
