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
"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 be broadcast on July 7, 2011, 12:30pm to 1:30pm EDT.
