NFPA recently issued an updated safety alert announcing four Tentative Interim Amendments (TIAs) issued by the Standards Council that address the use of antifreeze in sprinkler systems. The TIAs achieve a more comprehensive approach to the treatment of antifreeze in existing NFPA standards while providing new requirements for the use of antifreeze in new and existing residential occupancies.

NFPA Senior Engineer Matt Klaus talks about the new sprinkler requirements.
