May 7, 2014//Residential Sprinklers Homes to High-Rise

Residential Sprinklers provide some unique challenges to the layout technician due to limited water supply, ceiling configurations, and specific listing requirements of residential sprinklers. This seminar will focus on applying the requirements for residential sprinklers as they relate to layout in one and two family dwellings and other occupancies.

It will also describe the history of sprinklers and how they evolved into the need for application to single family dwellings.

The seminar also uses demonstrative exercises to explain the various options for calculating the hydraulics of these systems that are unique to this standard. This particular seminar assumes a familiarity with NFPA 13 and the principles contained therein.
