If aqueous film-forming foam is not good for the environment or our health, why is it still in use?
Modern, energy-efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems can stress a project budget with their additional energy-efficiency requirements. Combining HVAC water distribution with a fire suppression piping system can result in first-cost savings, which can improve system life cycle costs.
Learn the best questions to ask before starting a fire protection design project.
Clean agent fire suppression systems are used to protect facilities with high value per volume. They work on a total flooding concept, causing quick extinguishment of a detected fire, limiting damage to the protected space and its contents.
The Oct. 26, 2017, “Fire and life safety: Specifying fire detection and notification systems” webcast presenters addressed questions not covered during the live event.
Fire protection engineers should understand which clean agent fire suppression system is most appropriate for a mission critical facility.
Crouse-Hinds series painted EMT fittings are available in seven colors to accommodate a wide range of circuit identification needs.
Respondents to the Consulting-Specifying Engineer 2016 Fire and Life Safety Study identified seven high-level findings.
