Matthew Klaus On July 7 and July 19, NFPA will be offering a free, live web update 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 TIAs,” said Matt 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.
