  • Residential Fire Sprinkler

    Any information as to when this will take effect in the IPC area? 2011?

    Will the UPC be affected as well?

    Thanks.

    Some Cali-UPC cities want them in everything(Oxnard for one)
    Most others want them in anything over 5,000 SF.
    Been this way for years

    OOPS,Sorry

      I think it will happen for the first time in 2011 for the IPC area. Can't decide if it's good or bad-but I guess the sprinkler malfunction, installation, or accident % involved is better than someone dying as a result of a fire.

          The illegal installer's got the heads down to about 8 bucks a head for tract.
          Heads,pipe and joints are proven.

          Get yourself a license and a box of Rosetta Stone in Espaniol and jump in the game

          Just don't let your illegals use old glue.

              One thing I noticed for the CPVC system is that they have in their "DON'T" Section to NOT use fire stop materials?

              How does one get around that?

              And DON'T use tape and dope together.

                If you use a petroleum based firestop you'll degrade the product.

                  What I mean is that I'm ignorant to which ones are not petroleum based.

                  Can you make me learned again?

                      Some firestop material have solvents or plasticizers in them that will degrade the CPVC over time.

                      This link will give you all the individual firestop materials from various manufacturers that are certified to be used with CVPC pipe.

                      It's always best to consult with your local sales rep for assistance on product/system selection and submission paperwork and the local building officials as they have final says on what firestops are acceptable in your jurisdiction.

                      Good luck
