Residential Sprinklers from 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. It details the technological evolution of residential sprinklers, the development of a new standard involving sprinkler protection specifically for one and two family dwellings and manufactured housing, and demonstrates the predominate differences between this standard and the existing standard used for commercial applications. 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.
