1. NFPA 72-2016 proposed changes

NFPA 72: National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code technical committees have been busy reviewing and preparing revisions to the 2013 edition of the code that will ultimately be published in the 2016 edition. Here's a look at changes that may have a significant impact on fire alarm design.

2. Commissioning electrical and power systems

Essential/standby power equipment and system components are some of the most critical electrical systems to be commissioned in nonresidential buildings. 

3. LED lighting: Not all solutions are created equal

Ratings and certifications help validate high-quality LED lighting products. 

4. How to engineer manufacturing, industrial buildings

Manufacturing and industrial facilities can be particularly complex projects, involving large facilities containing behemoth machinery, hazardous chemicals, and a range of other concerns. 

5. Smoke control system testing

Special inspectors must know how to test and commission fire systems, sprinklers, dampers, and alarms. A discussion of relevant codes and standards is included.

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on www.csemag.com, July 14-20, for articles published within the last two months.
