Develop sprinkler defense for any occupancy using the most up-to-date standard -- now completely reorganized based on user needs in the modern built environment. NFPA 13, Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems, has undergone more than 60 revision cycles, reflecting more than 120 years of fire experience and new water-based fire protection technologies. Organizationally, the standard was ready for a change! A task group of water-based fire protection experts tackled the challenge and the 2019 edition of NFPA 13 is the result.
