This seminar will address the design and installation of sprinkler systems in residential occupancies, per NFPA 13D, Standard for Installation of Sprinklers in One- and Two-Family Dwellings and Manufactured Homes. An understanding of the regulations for sprinkler spacing, components, and hardware; hydraulic calculation exercises; along with water supply evaluations are all covered in detail. Installation requirements, including obstruction avoidance, heat zone limitations, pipe supports and valve criteria forming the foundation of such systems design, are also presented so that attendees may accurately apply the information found in the standard. Included in the presentation are variations in the design requirements for residential or dwelling unit sprinklers found in NFPA 13 and NFPA 13R, to enhance the use of the proper criteria or standard.
Upon completion of this seminar, participants should be able to:
- Restate residential sprinkler spacing rules
- Calculate minimum water supplies
- Interpret and apply sprinkler omission rules for residential occupancies
- Describe the differences between stand-alone and the various multi-purpose system examples
- Locate and apply the requirements for dwelling units in 13R and 13 systems.
