Storage is one of the most challenging fire protection scenarios. Using NFPA 13, this course reviews the key decision points to apply an approved design option for fire sprinkler use with storage applications. Utilizing an interactive teaching method, this seminar follows the path that an engineer, designer, or AHJ uses when evaluating storage protection. The foundational questions of ‘What is being stored?’, ‘How is it stored’, and ‘How high is it stored’ are reviewed in detail. Once these questions are answered, the various design approaches are considered to determine the best solution for the particular scenario. The seminar ends with a hands-on activity using the information shared in the course.
At the conclusion of this seminar, participants should be able to:
- Locate and apply the general requirements for storage protection
- Identify and classify commodities
- Locate and apply the requirements for CMDA, CMSA, and ESFR sprinkler protection
- Explain the requirements for in-rack sprinkler protection
