    NFPA 92, the only one-stop source for requirements on smoke control systems, is now available with hyperlinked applications advice!

    NFPA 92, Standard for Smoke Control Systems gives fire protection professionals and public safety officials a convenient source for requirements on all types of systems used to address the impact of smoke from fire -- information 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.

    This exclusive Digital Handbook adds expert commentary to the Standard's mandatory provisions for the design, installation, and testing of both new and retrofitted smoke control systems in buildings.

  • How 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.


    • 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.
