NFPA adopts changes for sprinkler hose fittings

June 02, 2007 |

For the first time, the National Fire Protection Association's “NFPA 13: Installation of Sprinkler Systems” includes code language that clarifies the use of flexible sprinkler hose fittings and provides applicable guidelines. The new language appears in the 2007 edition of NFPA 13 and states that flexible fittings supported by a suspended ceiling do not have to be independently supported. Tested in an earthquake simulation at the State University of New York, Buffalo, FlexHead's flexible sprinkler hose fittings have been certified against the International Code Council's seismic qualification testing criteria, a first for a flexible sprinkler hose fitting.
