This essential water-based fire protection resource is a must-have for engineers, designers, contractors, inspectors, and authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs) operating in countries that adopt the standard or need to know how to apply its requirements. The only publication supporting NFPA 13 offering a summary of technical changes, the handbook is also relied on by sprinkler system professionals for best practices and advanced insights into proper design and installation procedures.
Whether you plan to use it as a companion to your copy of the standard or to access complete NFPA 13 content along with proprietary knowledge and clarifications you won't find anywhere else, the handbook represents an exceptional value. Updated from the 2019 edition, all content and commentary has been written and edited by NFPA technical staff and nationally recognized subject matter experts.
Supplements address the European Experience wtih Fire Sprinklers; an overview of technical changes from the 2013 and 2016 editions of NFPA 13; the Evolution of Storage Sprinkler Standards; and Step-by-Step Hydraulic Calculations for a Fire Sprinkler System.
