NFPA 16
Standard for the Installation of Foam-Water Sprinkler and Foam-Water Spray Systems

Many local governments have adopted NFPA standards and codes. Safety, building and fire code enforcement inspectors in Columbus may make reference to which standards and codes are violated if your installed foam fire sprinkler system is malfunctioning, inoperable or failing tests.

If you receive a violation from safety, building and/or fire code enforcement officers contact an actively licensed fire sprinkler company in Columbus to immediately correct, repair, replace and remedy the violations received. You may receive a certificate to certify that your foam fire sprinkler system is fully operational and in a state of readiness upon completion of any services performed.

NFPA 16 Standard for the Installation of Foam-Water Sprinkler and Foam-Water Spray Systems

“1.1 Scope. 1.1.1 This standard contains minimum requirements for the design, installation, and maintenance of foam-water sprinkler and spray systems. These systems shall be designed with the required density for either foam or water application as the controlling factor, depending on the design purpose of the system. It is not the intent of this standard to specify where foam-water sprinkler and spray protection is required. The determination of where foam-water sprinkler and spray systems are required shall be made in accordance with such applicable standards as NFPA 30, Flammable and Combustible Liquids Code, and NFPA 409, Standard on Aircraft Hangars. 1.1.2* This standard shall apply only to systems using low-expansion foam.”

About the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA)

A group of insurance firms originally created the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) in the late 1800's for the purpose of creating building standards in the emerging fire sprinkler industry.

The goal in creating these standards and codes was to aid fire sprinkler installers with specific guidelines created from the study of fire departments, fire sprinkler companies and manufacturers. These standards and codes have been adopted by many local governments and around the World for the installation, maintenance and service of installed fire sprinkler systems.
