Special Hazards Fire Protection: A New Look at System Design & Fire Fighting Foam

Steven Scandaliato, SET, SDG, LLC

Room: America AB

CEU 0.2 | CPD 2.0 | CH 2.0

Install/Design Track

There have been significant issues with the use of AFFF over the past few years including a ban on fluorine foams. As a result, several new products and technologies have entered the market and with them, new rules, design methods, and system costs. This seminar introduces Fire Fighting Foam in traditional and special hazards fire protection. Specific emphasis is presented on advantages and disadvantages for each giving the contractor and engineer a clear understanding of what best fits the hazards and project restraints they are dealing with.

Upon the conclusion of this seminar, the participant should be able to:

  • Identify special hazards and systems available to protect them
  • Recognize the difference in foam product types available and how to apply them
  • Describe the new system of technology available and where it is applicable

Spot the Dot: Sprinkler Design Using NFPA 13, 2019 Ed.

Steven Scandaliato, SET, SDG, LLC

Room: America CD

CEU 0.2 | CPD 2.0 | CH 2.0

Install/Design Track

This seminar focuses specifically on major sections of NFPA 13 influencing sprinkler layout in the 2019 edition. Topics such as construction definitions, obstruction rules, ceiling pockets, and clouded ceilings are included. We will review real project examples that do not fall neatly into those found in the standard, as well as changes in these sections with the new edition.

Upon completion of this seminar the participant should be able to:

  • Identify construction definitions without using the standard
  • Compare differences between construction definitions and the impact on the design
  • Identify the four major obstruction classifications and apply the rules for each
  • Identify pocket and clouded ceilings and apply the rules for each
