Free webinar on “Storage Protection under Sloped Ceilings”

Blog Post created by Sreenivasan Ranganathan Employee on Jul 19, 2017

In the event of a fire, a sloped ceiling may alter sprinkler performance from expected results for a conventional horizontal ceiling configuration. This webinar will address the storage protection under sloped ceilings. A detailed computational study using the CFD code FireFOAM has been performed to understand ceiling configuration effects (construction details, etc.) and sprinkler configuration effects (stand-off distance, etc.) on suppression performance to support the development of a large-scale fire test plan to inform NFPA 13 for sloped ceiling storage protection. You can also read more about the Fire Protection Research Foundation projects on Storage Under Sloped Ceilings Phase 1 and Phase 2.
