Does anyone know if the ICAF system is NFPA 409 compliant for an Air Craft Hanger?
Which edition of 409 do you have to use??
From 2006 paper
new solution is availableAlthough ICAF is not included in NFPA-409 at this time, numerous full-scale Class B fire tests have clearly demonstrated that ICAF extinguishing systems perform at an equivalent level to foam-water extinguishing systems in controlling and extinguishing Class B fires. Based on this, when water supply was an issue, Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) have approved the use of Compressed Air Foam as an acceptable alternative.The designer should confirm with the AHJ on his project that ICAF is accepted as an alternative before proceeding with the design. When it is, a fifth solution is now available to him, providing better fire suppression capabilities with only 25% of the water requirements !
We are using the 2011 edition of NFPA 409 as referenced by the 2013 edition of NFPA 13
