  • Description

    Help protect lives and property—avoid EPSS failure by staying up to code with the latest edition of NFPA 110.

    Install, test, and maintain emergency power supply systems using revised and updated requirements in the 2019 edition of NFPA 110, Standard for Emergency and Standby Power Systems. Readiness of emergency power in the case of disruption of the normal utility supply is a vital consideration in safeguarding building occupants. Unfortunately, poor installation, planning, and maintenance practices are all common causes of emergency power supply systems (EPSS) failure. Help reduce risks by complying with NFPA 110.

    NFPA 110 is essential for confident and correct system installation, testing, and maintenance.

    Important changes in the 2019 edition help you avoid errors and oversights. For example, this edition clarifies the location and access to the remote emergency stop switch, how to test fuel in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations in lieu of an ASTM standard, and specifications for a battery charger.

    In addition to improving occupant safety, NFPA 110 compliance helps save money by extending the life of the system through proper care.

    Comprehensive coverage addresses:

    • Power sources
    • Transfer equipment
    • Controls
    • Supervisory equipment
    • Related electrical and mechanical auxiliary and accessory equipment needed to supply electrical power to the load terminals of the transfer equipment

    Provide backup power systems you can trust.

    NFPA 110 has the latest coverage for designers, engineers, contractors, installers, and facility managers of any building that requires a backup generator or similar emergency system according to NFPA 101®, Life Safety Code®, or another code. Apply the 2019 edition of NFPA 110 to help ensure every EPSS is up to code and ready for use on demand. (Softbound, 46 pp., 2019)

  • How the NFPA Handbooks Differ from Codes and Standards

    THE NFPA HANDBOOKS DIFFER FROM CODES AND STANDARDS

    Ever wonder what the difference is between an NFPA® handbook and a code or standard? We’re glad you asked.

    NFPA codes and standards both provide requirements for achieving outcomes. Handbooks take a deeper dive, providing the full text of a code or standard as well as expert commentary and features such as graphics, decision trees, testing procedures, case studies, sample forms and checklists, and other helpful aids to give a better understanding of the reasoning behind the requirements and how to apply them.

    JUST REMEMBER:

    • A code or standard is a framework—a set of rules to follow with a goal to achieve a certain result
    • A handbook is a connector—linking requirements to application by helping you understand the reasoning behind a code or standard

    The simplest way to think about it is that codes and standards list the technical requirements while handbooks explain those requirements to clarify how to apply them.
