NFPA 13: Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems 2016 Edition is a standard that provides minimum requirements for the design and installation of automatic fire sprinkler systems. Changes to this edition include:

  • Significant revisions to commodity classification tables
  • Updated classification tables in Chapter 5 Annex based on current materials
  • Updated information on corrosion in piping
  • Adds a new requirement that a single air vent be installed for each wet sprinkler system to help reduce potential corrosion activity due to trapped air
  • A new protection scheme for exposed bay plastics in racks has been added to Chapter 17, in response to the potential for serious fires
  • New language added to Chapter 8 based on studies done by the Fire Protection Research Foundation allows sprinklers to be omitted above certain cloud ceiling configurations
  • Conversions to metric have switched from an exact conversion into an approximate conversion to make the Standard more usable and cost effective on a global scale
  • A new provision requires listed window sprinklers to be used where glazing assemblies are used as an alternative to fire-resistance-rated construction
  • Revisions in Chapter 9 address the use of concrete anchors
  • An alternative storage protection scheme has been added for certain storage arrangements, similar to the Scheme A allowance in NFPA 30: Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code.
