Presenter: Karl Weigand, PE



This class will discuss some of the major difficulties with designing attic protection systems. It will identify how typical construction affects heat movement in attic and how this creates issues using traditional NFPA 13 prescriptive standard requirements. It will then provide a high-level overview of the Victaulic Back to Back and Low Flow Specific Application Attic Sprinkler Protection Schemes clarifying their differences as well similarities.


Karl works in the fire protection application engineering group at Victaulic where his primary duties consist of providing training, providing technical support, researching and development, and representing Victaulic’s interests within the fire protection industry. Karl holds a Professional Engineering license in the field of Fire Protection Engineering and is a graduate of Worcester Polytechnic Institute with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Master of Science degree in Fire Protection Engineering. Over the last twelve years Karl has held positions on NFPA 15, NFPA 16 NFPA 24, and NFPA 750 as well as AWWA’s Backflow, Water Metering, and Fire Protection committees and Underwriters Laboratory’s UL199 STP. Karl continues to represent the sprinkler industry on NFPA 101, 820, and 5000 and Underwriters Laboratory’s UL262 STP and the NFSA’s Engineering and Standards Committee.
