Long considered the benchmark for automatic fire sprinkler systems, NFPA 13 presents consensus-based requirements for sprinkler system design approaches, installation, and component options. Compliance is essential to sprinkler performance, which in turn significantly reduces the risks of fire deaths and property loss.
The 2010 NFPA 13, Installation of Sprinkler Systems is revised and updated with added criteria based on recent fire testing and studies performed by the Fire Protection Research Foundation. Chapter 20: Special Designs of Storage Protection presents requirements for the protection of three new special storage arrangements, including carton records storage with catwalk access, and high bay records storage. This edition also adopts the SEI/ASCE 7 approach for load calculations and introduces new zone-of-influence tables for Schedule 5 steel pipe, CPVC, and Type M copper tube. An important new method to calculate rack shelf area takes the placement of loads into consideration.
