2 Speaker Steve Leyton Protection Design & Consulting Steve Leyton is President of Protection Design & Consulting in San Diego, CA and a member of the Fire Smarts Faculty. He began his career in 1981 on the design/build side of fire sprinkler industry and founded PD&C in Since then, the firm s work has been focused on Architectural as well as Contractor clients. Professional affiliations include membership in NFPA, International Code Council (ICC), American Fire Sprinkler Association (AFSA), National Fire Sprinkler Association (NFSA), California Fire Prevention Officers Northern and Southern Sections, and the San Diego Fire Protection Association. In code development, he is a member of the NFPA14, NFPA 13D/13R and NFPA 5000 Technical Committees. He served as Chair of the installation committee for the California State Fire Marshal s Residential Sprinkler Code Adoption Task Group and Co-Chair of the ICC Ad-Hoc Committee on Residential Fire Sprinklers. Over the course of his career, Steve has worked on all manner of residential, commercial/ industrial, institutional and high-rise projects in the United States, Mexico and Asia. 2

3 NFPA s preferred definition of automatic sprinkler: A fire suppression or control device that operates automatically when its heat-activated element is heated to its thermal rating or above, allowing water to discharge over a specified area.

4 Sprinklers are categorized based on the following: Orientation (upright, pendent, sidewall) Area of coverage Specific characteristics of its ability to control or suppress a fire Thermal response Discharge (spray pattern) characteristics - standard, extended, etc. Limitations by use or occupancy residential, storage, standard Key characteristics of sprinklers: Temperature rating Thermal sensitivity which is a measurement of how quickly a sprinkler activates once it is exposed to its temperature rating Orifice size which is the diameter of the opening through which water flows

5 Sprinklers must discharge a minimum flow rate Based on area of coverage Based on whether ceiling is sloped Pressure affected by orifice size or K-factor Available pressure impacted by pipe size, fittings and overall friction loss.

6 Sprinklers must discharge a minimum flow rate Based on area of coverage Whether ceiling is sloped and to what rise Pressure driven by orifice size and K-factor Available pressure impacted by pipe size, fittings and overall friction loss.

7 Residential sprinklers available in two pendent styles with different trim and cover plates: Recessed (aka semi-recessed) Concealed (dome type) Concealed (flat plate) Costs and listings vary it is critical to assure that a certain sprinkler is listed for the application!!

11 Each manufacturer offers a variety of factory finishes for both sprinklers and escutcheons. Custom finishes available by special order; typically referenced by paint card number. No field painting of sprinklers or cover plates; only factory-applied coatings are allowed.

12

13 Some sprinklers have limited areas of coverage Can vary by manufacturer and K-factor Some not listed for slopes; some listed for slopes up to 4:12; some listed for slopes up to 8:12. Manufacturers are aggressively testing new sprinklers for exposed beams and slopes.

19 Operational Sensitivity For Horizontal Ceilings (maximum 2 inch rise for 12 inch run), the sprinklers are to be installed with a deflector to ceiling distance of 1-3/8 to 4 inches or in the recessed position using only the Style 20 Recessed Escutcheon as shown in Figure 2. Notes The Beam Ceiling Design Criteria section starting on Page 4 permits deflector to ceiling distances up to 15-3/4 inches. So as to help avoid obstructions to water distribution, a maximum 12 inch deflector-to-ceiling distance is permitted for NFPA 13DandNFPA 13R applications where the sprinklers are located in closets. (Tyco Technical Bulletin TFP400)

20 Meter Rating Safe flow rate and rated flow rate not related Two basic meter types, turbine and disk New push for listed meters. Unscientific tests show that meters will perform at double their rated flow and beyond. Backflow requirements vary by purveyor.

21 Restrictions may force Design To Available Meter Both NFPA 13D and P2904 require concurrent domestic allowance be hydraulically accounted for in MP systems. This is also a commonly enforced amendment nationwide. AHJ can decide whether or not to count domestic allowance against meter rating.
