1. Preventing arc flash in mission critical facilities

To address arc flash problems, we turn to codes and standards. NEC 240.87 is an important leap in arc flash safety for the electrical industry, along with NFPA 70E and IEEE 1584: IEEE Guide for Performing Arc Flash Hazard Calculations.

2. Demystifying IT room protection requirements

Information technology (IT) equipment area/room designs must balance the needs for security, cooling, and fire protection.

3. 2016 Commissioning Giants

Building commissioning providers are closely tracking the business, market, and technical trends that are influencing—and, in some cases, reshaping—their profession. At the top of the list are priorities that affect practical business decisions, both near-term and in the future.

4. Your questions answered: Fire/life safety: Notification systems

NFPA 72 defines how fire notification systems should be designed and installed. Here is additional information from the Oct. 13, 2016, webcast on Fire/life safety: Notification systems.
