November 30, 2016

Seismic Protection for Fire Sprinkler Systems

As a life safety system, fire sprinkler systems need to remain operational following an earth-quake event. NFPA 13 has guidelines in place to seismically protect the piping system. The rules provide both flexibility and rigidity so that the system can move with the building struc-ture it is protecting against fire.
Learn when seismic protection is needed for a building. In addition, the components used to protect against earthquake motion and the necessary calculations will be reviewed.

 

Learning Outcomes:
At the conclusion of this seminar, the participant will be able to:

1. Apply the principles of seismic protection on piping systems

2. Identify the points in a fire sprinkler system that need flexibility

3. Explain where sway braces are needed on a sprinkler systems

4. Calculate the applicable loads to sway braces

5. Evaluate common configurations in order to locate seismic protection components

YOU WILL NEED A 2016 EDITION OF NFPA 13

Standpipe Systems for Fire Protection

This one-day program provides the participant with the requirements for design, layout, installation and acceptance testing of standpipe systems using NFPA 14. Through discussion and activities the seminar will address topics such as system pressures, the challenges of tall buildings, requirements for horizontal standpipes and the acceptance requirements for standpipe systems.

 

Learning Outcomes:

At the conclusion of this seminar the participant will be able to:

1. Discuss the different types of standpipe systems

2. Identify standpipe system components and hardware

3. Recognize the differences between horizontal standpipes and lateral runs of pipe to standpipe outlets.
