Circuits and Pathways - Planning, Designing and Installing for Failure or for Success?
Presented By: Robert P. Schifiliti, P.E., FSFPE
Sponsored By: SimplexGrinnell
Don't wait for a lawsuit to teach you how to best plan, design and install fire alarm pathways to meet safety goals. One of the first lessons learned when someone starts out in the fire alarm industry is the difference between Initiating Device Circuits (IDC), Notification Appliance Circuits (NAC) and Signaling Line Circuits (SLC). But most designers, installers, inspectors and even fire investigators do not understand the various failure modes and effects that might impact these circuits and the overall fire safety mission. This webinar focuses on wired circuits, or as NFPA now states, wired pathways. After a quick review of the different pathway types and classes, we'll look at some of the different failure modes and effects and show how proper planning, design and installation can minimize the likelihood of failure. We'll also look at some new requirements added the NFPA 72 to minimize some of these failure modes and a few requirements that have existed in the Code for quite awhile, but that are not well understood, and often not complied with by designers and installers. Fire investigators are finding more and more failures caused by poor planning in the selection and installation of pathways - particularly signaling line circuits.
