Presenter: Scott Hanson, Reliable Fire

This presentation focuses on protecting high challenge rack storage using ceiling only sprinklers and ceiling sprinklers complimented with in-rack sprinklers. The goal in this presentation is to point out recent changes (and additions) to the protection schemes used for protecting rack storage.  The changes covered come from NFPA-13 (2016) which now includes different design schemes for protecting exposed expanded plastics and FM Data Sheet 8-9, which has made changes to both their ceiling only and in-rack protection schemes.  A Performance Based Design scheme option using extended coverage large orifice sprinklers for in-rack protection will also be discussed.

Scott Hanson is a Technical Services Manager at Reliable Automatic Sprinkler Co., Inc. Prior to his career at Reliable, Scott spent 25+ years working as a fire sprinkler contractor in both the Northwest and upper Midwestern regions of the United States. Scott has a B.S. degree in Business Administration. He is N.I.C.E.T. Certified as a level IV Water-Based (formerly Automatic Sprinkler System) Layout.
