  • Description

    Use the 2015 NFPA 2010 for advanced and economical aerosol fire extinguishing systems.

    Work confidently with state-of-the-art aerosol fire extinguishing technology using the 2015 edition NFPA 2010: Standard for Fixed Aerosol Fire Extinguishing Systems. This comprehensive Standard provides information about fixed aerosol systems used to protect electrical power equipment, server rooms, telecom equipment, machinery spaces, and rail vehicles. NFPA 2010 provides:

    • Design, installation, operation, testing and maintenance provisions addressing condensed and dispersed aerosol fire extinguishing systems for total flooding applications
    • Performance requirements and methods of testing for condensed aerosol systems, dispersed aerosol systems, and associated components

    Important updates in this edition:

    • NFPA 2010 now references the new UL listing standard that will help aerosol systems gain greater acceptance industry wide.
    • The visual inspection frequency interval has changed from monthly to semiannually. This change reduces the cost of maintenance for aerosol systems; important news for system maintainers, building owners, and insurers.

    Reference the latest edition of NFPA 2010 for the guidance and information you need to design, use, and approve advanced aerosol fire extinguishing systems for dependable and economical fire protection. (Print, 32 pp., 2015)
