Telgian fire protection expert Ralph Bless, P.E., SET, CFPS will present an all-new Fire Smarts “NFPA 13: 2022 Edition Revisions” webinar on December 10, 2020 from 2:00pm-3:30pm Eastern (including Q&A time).
“NFPA 13 ‘Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems’ has major revisions coming in the 2022 edition,” says Bless. “This course covers these major revisions that represent the best practices for the design and installation of fire sprinkler systems.”
Bless has more than 38 years of experience in fire protection including a broad range of water based and special hazard system design, code consulting and fire protection engineering services. He is licensed as a Professional Engineer in six states, is a Level IV NICET senior fire sprinkler layout technician and holds several state and national certifications including that of Certified Fire Protection Specialist.
His webinar will examine the 2022 edition of NFPA 13, which includes revisions related to the use of inert gas with dry pipe sprinkler systems to control corrosions, the elimination of area/density curves and the incorporation of single-point densities for new sprinkler systems protecting storage commodities, and new requirements for the protection of multiple-rack storage configurations. His presentation will also address some proposed revisions that were not accepted by the technical committees to help participants understand the thinking and intent behind the revisions that were accepted.
Upon completion of the “NFPA 13: 2022 Edition Revisions” webinar, participants will be able to:
- Describe the difference between codes and standards
- Explain the process for revising codes and standards
- Identify and locate the major revisions incorporated with the 2022 edition of NFPA 13
- Understand the reasoning used by the committee in accepting or rejecting proposed revisions
