In addition to the traditional sprinkler seminars that NFPA offers year round, there is a new one day seminar that will be offered starting in September to address the changes to the 2013 editions of NFPA 13, 13R, 13D and NFPA 20. This seminar is great for designers, installers, AHJs and insurance Representatives who have a grasp on the concepts and structure of the NFPA sprinkler standards and are looking for the latest and greatest info from the technical committees.    NFPA13-13 Code Cover Front

The NFPA sprinkler standards saw the reorganization of several chapters, including the two rack storage chapters in NFPA 13 and a complete reorganization of NFPA 13D, where 4 new chapters were added. Major concepts that were modified during the latest code development cycle include freeze protection options, material compatibility requirements, permissible sprinklers omissions and new design options for specific storage arrangements. In addition to all of the updated sprinkler information for the 2013 editions, a bonus supplement on changes to NFPAs fire pump standard, NFPA 20. This seminar will be taught by technical committee members and NFPA staff that were directly involved with the development of these new editions.
