Event Description
As a life safety system, fire sprinkler systems need to remain operational following an earthquake event. In order to do this, NFPA 13 has guidelines in place to seismi-cally protect the piping system. The rules provide both flexibility and rigidity so that the sys-tem can move with the building structure it is protecting against fire. Learn when seismic protec-tion is needed for a building. In addition, the components used to protect against earth-quake motion and the necessary calculations will be reviewed.
