Available Sprinkler Systems: Make the Right System Choice for Your Project

Recorded On: 10/26/2019

John August Denhardt, PE, FSFPE

This program will allow the participant to fully understand the available types of sprinkler systems available for a project. In many cases, the wrong type of sprinkler system is specified for a project, which can lead to project cost overruns and the client’s expectations not being fulfilled. The selection of the proper type of sprinkler system will offer good fire protection at a reasonable cost.
