Description 

Use NFPA 13D to design and install reliable and economical sprinkler systems that keep people and property safer from fires in the home.

Research shows that residential fire sprinklers could take monumental strides in saving lives and reducing property loss in homes, where most fire deaths in the U.S. occur.
