Antifreeze in sprinkler systems

Published:  21 June, 2011

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) will be offering free live web updates on changes to NFPA sprinkler-related codes.

 

The changes were brought about by Tentative Interim Amendments (TIAs) regarding the use of antifreeze in sprinkler systems.

“Based on recent full scale testing of various antifreeze concen­trations in sprinkler systems, NFPA 13, NFPA 13R, NFPA 13D, and NFPA 25 have modified the requirements for antifreeze usage through recently approved TIA’s,” said Matthew Klaus, Senior Fire Protection Engineer, who will host the web updates. “The purpose of these broadcasts is to provide a brief history on the use of antifreeze in sprinkler systems along with an explanation of the new requirements and a discussion of alternatives to antifreeze.”

Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions following the presentation.

The update will broadcast on June 28, July 7, and July 19. For more information and to register, click here.
