Install, inspect, test, and maintain wet chemical extinguishing systems correctly using NFPA 17A.

The 2017 edition of NFPA 17A: Standard for Wet Chemical Extinguishing Systems outlines the latest rules for wet chemical extinguishing systems associated with restaurant and institutional hoods, plenums, ducts, and associated cooking appliances.

Maximize equipment integrity and reliability with coverage for:

  • Components
  • System requirements
  • Plans and acceptance tests
  • Inspection, maintenance, and recharging

The 2017 edition of NFPA 17A presents:

  • New requirement for the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) to approve used components in the system
  • New requirement for a placard to be placed near all Class K portable fire extinguishers, indicating that the fire protection system must be activated before a portable fire extinguisher is used
  • Better correlation with NFPA 96: Standard for Ventilation Control and Fire Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations through reduced redundancies
  • Added Annex material identifying the areas of protection for the discharge nozzles

NFPA 17A is essential for manufacturers, installers, and AHJs.
