A free webinar on HVLS Fans and Sprinkler Operation will be sponsored by the Research Foundation on October 27, 12:30-2:00 pm (EST).  High-volume low-speed (HVLS) fans are in increasing use in storage and manufacturing facilities. However, until recently, the interaction of these fans with automatic sprinkler operation was unknown. What impacts do the fans have on fire protection? Do they obstruct the flow from the sprinkler? How does the air movement of the fan influence the overall performance of the sprinkler in controlling or extinguishing a fire? And how can these effects be mitigated? This webinar presents the results of a comprehensive study of these issues and provides practical guidance on the use of these fans in sprinklered facilities. Register now.
