Project Feature

Sprinklers are an active suppression measure that can help prevent a fire from getting out of control; however, the installation of sprinklers throughout buildings is expensive. Chapter 8 of NFPA 13: Installation of Sprinkler Systems addresses sprinkler requirements for commercial buildings. It recognizes the use of passive protection systems and includes specific exceptions for concealed spaces for which installation of sprinklers can be omitted. 

Chopped Strand Mat

Chapter states that concealed spaces filled with noncombustible insulation shall not require sprinkler installation. In simple terms, this means that in some conclealed spaces, like between floors in a multistory building, appropriately fire-rated insulation can be used as fire suppression mechanism rather than installing sprinkler systems. NAIMA recommends that the space above ceilings (between floors) be filled with either unfaced fiberglass or mineral wool batts, or with loose fill.

Statistics show that 85 percent of a house’s heat loss is straight up through the attic space. Houses built before the energy crunch in the early ’70s, might just have a little bit of fiberglass insulation in the attic or empty cavities between the joists. Either way, the house is probably wasting energy – and the homeowners’ money.
