Review of Residential Fire Sprinkler Systems for One- and Two-Family Dwellings

This two-part program describes the review process of of fire sprinkler systems for one- and two-family dwellings, designed in accordance with the NFPA 13D standard.

Part 1 (CLSE 501) is a prerequisite Part 2, and describes the history of the NFPA 13D standard, and how it differs from NFPA 13 and NFPA 13R. It discusses the exceptions allowed by NFPA 13D in certain circumstances, and covers water supply requirements and how they are determined and evaluated. Other topics covered include: Residential sprinkler spacing and location; Residential sprinkler coverage areas, temperature ratings, and obstructions to discharge; Applicable pipe and fittings; Multipurpose and Stand-alone piping systems; and Concepts and considerations used in residential system hydraulic calculations.

Part 2 (CLSE 502) requires the completion of Part 1. This program leads the student through the detailed step-by-step process of reviewing a fire sprinkler system plan designed for protection of a single-family home. Supplemental documents, available to the student as downloadable pdf files, provide a copy of the plan to be reviewed, as well as supporting data sheets, hydraulic calculations, and a sample plan review checklist.

It is highly recommended that the student have a copy of NFPA 13D Installation of Sprinkler Systems in One- and two-Family Dwellings and Manufactured Homes, 2007 Edition, readily available for reference during this seminar.
