FPRF Webinar: Obstructions and Early Suppression Fast Response Sprinklers
Early suppression fast-response (ESFR) sprinklers are often installed in warehouses to avoid installation of in-rack sprinklers. However, since the discharge pattern of ESFR sprinklers is different from that of standard spray sprinklers, obstructions near the sprinklers can greatly affect the distribution of water. This webinar will present the results of the six-year Fire Protection Research Foundation project, Obstructions and Early Suppression Fast-Response Sprinklers, that investigated the impact of obstructions on ESFR sprinklers in a warehouse setting to inform NFPA 13, Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems. In addition, the newly created ESFR Sprinkler Obstruction Analysis Tool will be demonstrated with relevant examples. The webinar will also include a detailed review of the proposed technical changes that are anticipated to appear in the 2022 edition of NFPA 13.
