Content DescriptionInstall home sprinklers correctly -- and save lives -- with the updated edition of NFPA 13D. Automatic sprinklers help reduce the risk of dying in a home fire by about 80% while significantly protecting against property loss. The 2019 edition of NFPA 13D, Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems in One- and Two-Family Dwellings and Manufactured Homes, features up-to-date criteria addressing every aspect of sprinkler design, water supplies, equipment, and placement. Revisions in NFPA 13D address gaps in coverage and clarify requirements, so you can make homes safer from fire and related hazards. Installers and contractors need the revised 2019 edition NFPA 13D to address different types of construction, work with the latest technologies, and help reduce risks while maximizing efficiency. Changes in this edition include: Added beam requirements and new figures for sprinklers installed under and adjacent to beams New requirements for closets where ventless clothes dryers are installed Added requirements where pressure-reducing and pressure-regulating valves are installed A new section in Chapter 12 addressing inactive systems in structures left vacant for a period of time Clarified requirements for the use of well pumps as a water supply Added images that clarify sprinkler location and clearances needed around fireplaces Most fire deaths in the U.S. occur in homes, which is why safety experts, firefighters, and community leaders strongly advocate installing sprinklers in dwellings, and sprinkler systems are a requirement in all U.S. model building codes. Install home fire sprinkler systems with the latest edition of NFPA 13D and help protect lives.
