Designer’s Illustrated Guide to NFPA 101


First Edition! Now architects have a visual reference to help them design code-compliant buildings–NFPA’s Designer’s Illustrated Guide to NFPA 101.

Based on the 2006 Life Safety Code, the Designer’s Illustrated Guide to NFPA 101 is a fully illustrated color manual that incorporates Code compliance into the overall design process. Unlike the Life Safety Code Handbook, which interprets the Code through commentary and explanations, this book translates requirements into more than 500 drawings.

Written by an architect for architects, the Guide approaches meeting Code from a whole new perspective!

Using a process-oriented organization, this pictorial tool focuses on basic code intent as design criteria. Detailed drawings are supplemented by concise captions that provide technical and practical advice. Each chapter addresses a different type of occupancy and includes:

* A table of contents
* Author’s notes, tips, and alerts that highlight important issues to help you avoid mistakes
* A list of topics covered by the design requirements
* Useful LSC definitions that clarify terminology
* Pertinent Code references for further research

Ensure compliance for all occupancy types. Order the Designer’s Illustrated Guide to NFPA 101 today and be more successful on every project!
