Seismic Protection of Fire Sprinkler Systems


This seminar is being taught in partnership with the Society of Fire Protection Engineers.  As a life safety system, fire sprinkler systems need to remain operational following an earthquake event. In order to do this, 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 structure 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.


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


It is highly recommended that participants come prepared with an NFPA 13 2016 Edition.
