October 21, 2014 – High Ceilings, Step Ceilings and Ceiling Pockets by Victoria B. Valentine, P.E.
Not every ceiling is a flat, smooth, horizontal ceiling. Those ceilings with unusual configurations need clear rules for where to place the sprinklers. This program will discuss the standardized method that NFPA 13 uses to determine sprinkler spacing and location for a number of unusual ceiling configurations.
November 18, 2014 – Protection of Aerosol Storage by Bob Upson
NFPA 30B has its own rules regarding the protection of aerosol storage with fire sprinklers. Discharge criteria is provided in a series of tables that reference the level of hazard of the aerosol as well as the type of sprinkler at the ceiling and whether or not additional sprinklers will be needed in the racks. This seminar will explain the different levels of hazards of aerosols and summarize the information in the tables so that the user will be able to determine sprinkler discharge criteria for palletized, solid pile and rack storage of aerosol products.
December 16, 2014 – Protection of Aircraft Hangars-Part 2 by Jim Lake
Last year, the NFSA covered the water-based fire protection system (water only sprinklers, foam-water sprinklers, and foam system) criteria for Group I Hangars from NFPA 409. This program will pick up where the last program left off and cover the water-based fire protection system requirements for Group II, Group III and Group IV hangars. New to the 2011 edition of NFPA 409 was a separate chapter on the protection of hangars specifically designed for unfueled aircraft. This program will also cover that new chapter in NFPA 409.
