Seminar Description – This program reviews the 2015 – 2018 International Building Code (IBC) for fire sprinkler requirements and details areas, such as water supply, open corridor protection, Chapter 9, tradeoffs, and other current IBC information on fire sprinkler systems. The program identifies and explains the various types of sprinkler systems and where they are required and used throughout the IBC. Several discussions will arise over the design options which will permit design flexibility in all building types and uses. The seminar will cover relevant sections of the IBC and fire sprinkler installation standards (such as NFPA 13, 13R and 13D) that all code officials, contractors, layout technicians and engineers should know. Participants will learn how to use the NFSA Fire Sprinkler Guide to quickly identify code requirements and the 125+ trade-ups that fire sprinklers provide.
