12A: Standard on Halon 1301 Fire Extinguishing Systems


Up-to-date requirements in NFPA 12A support safe, knowledgeable, and effective Halon 1301 fire extinguishing system inspection, maintenance, and decommissioning.

Primarily present in commercial, industrial, institutional, marine, and military installations, Halon 1301 fire extinguishing systems require proper care for safety and effectiveness. NFPA 12A: Standard on Halon 1301 Fire Extinguishing Systems presents the most advanced rules for halogenated agent systems, so equipment will function as intended throughout its service life.

A critical resource for facility managers and inspectors, NFPA 12A requirements cover system design, installation, testing, inspection, approval, listing, operation, maintenance, decommissioning, and removal.

Changes in the 2018 edition of NFPA 12A include:

  • Updated references to companion codes and standards
  • Revised and corrected Annex H on nozzle and piping calculations that clarifies the details of this often complex procedure

The standard also contains numerous annexes that provide valuable information on topics such as enclosure integrity procedure, hazards to personnel, storage containers, piping, system flow calculations, and approval of installations, along with other informational references.

Facility managers, code enforcers, and inspectors of these systems need the latest edition of NFPA 12A.
