About This Item

 

Full Description

Apply the latest engineering methods! Update to the 2017 edition of NFPA 555: Guide on Methods for Evaluating Potential for Room Flashover for current methods and new data based on recent studies.

To help ensure life safety and property protection, keep pace with current methods for determining flashover risks as described in NFPA 555. With the growing application of equivalency concepts and performance-based designs, it's increasingly important for fire protection engineers and AHJs to be able to evaluate the potential for room flashover, or full involvement during a fire.

The methods in NFPA 555 concern:
  • Prevention of ignition
  • Installation of automatic fire suppression systems
  • Control of ventilation factors
  • Limitation of the heat release rate of individual and grouped room contents, furnishings, and interior finish
New data in the 2017 edition help you stay up-to-date.

The 2017 edition of NFPA 555 adds new language to Chapter 9 regarding the methods used to determine the heat release rates of electrical and optical fiber cables. Chapter 9 also references new information for determining the typical heat release rates for residential furniture fires including use of the furniture calorimeter. Order today to provide fire protection engineering solutions based on the industry benchmark.
