Make sure vital water spray systems are installed correctly so they'll be ready for action with the 2012 NFPA 15.

NFPA 15: Standard for Water Spray Fixed Systems for Fire Protection covers the design, installation, maintenance, and test requirements for fixed water spray systems for fire protection. Also included are minimum requirements for the periodic testing and maintenance of ultra high-speed fixed water spray systems.

Reflecting the latest technology, engineering principles, test data, and field experience, the 2012 Edition improves fire protection with changes such as:

  • Updated rules for grooved couplings to comply with changes in 2010 NFPA 13
  • Expanded section on Designing for Flammable Vapor Mitigation
  • New Contractor's Material and Test Certificate

If you're responsible for industrial fire hazards, order today so you're ready to install systems that are up-to-code and can be counted on if fire strikes. (Softbound, 71 pp., 2012)
