NFPA Issues New Safety Alert Regarding Antifreeze in Sprinklers

National Fire Protection AssociationThe National Fire Protection Association‘s (NFPA) Standard Council has issued four Tentative Interim Amendments (TIAs) that address the use of antifreeze in fire sprinkler systems. The TIAs provide new requirements in NFPA standards for the use of antifreeze in both new and existing sprinkler systems. NFPA has also issued a new safety alert regarding the use of antifreeze in sprinkler systems. These actions come after extensive research and standards development activities to address concerns raised by the combustibility of antifreeze solutions in sprinkler systems.

The previous TIAs and Safety Alert issued by NFPA in August 2010 are no longer in effect. The entire NFPA Safety Alert and more information can be found at NFPA Antifreeze Alert.
