Protect the public with the first-edition of NFPA 92, the only one-stop source for requirements on smoke control systems.

NFPA 92: Standard for Smoke Control Systems gives fire protection professionals and public safety officials a convenient source for all the requirements previously found in two Standards: NFPA 92A: Standard for Smoke-Control Systems Utilizing Barriers and Pressure Differences and NFPA 92B: Standard for Smoke Management Systems in Malls, Atria, and Large Spaces.

NFPA 92 covers all types of systems used to address the impact of smoke from fire, with mandatory provisions for the design, installation, and testing of both new and retrofitted smoke control systems in buildings -- including openings and leakage through egress doors in stairways. Chapters address:

  • Fully revised and correlated definitions
  • Design fundamentals
  • Smoke management calculation procedures
  • Building equipment and controls
  • Smoke control system documentation
  • Testing

13 Annexes contain helpful explanatory material drawn from both NFPA 92A and NFPA 92B.

Work with comprehensive explanatory material filled with tables, charts, and state-of-the-art calculations; techniques for predicting the rate of heat release of fires; information on computer-based models for atria and malls; facts on additional design objectives; stratification of smoke; types of stairwell pressurization systems; HVAC air-handling systems; and more.

The new NFPA 92: Smoke Control Systems is adoptable and enforceable by local authorities, so it's a must for enforcers, engineers, architects, and industry professionals concerned with or responsible for public safety. (Softbound, 80 pp., 2012)
