NFPA 17A: Standard for Wet Chemical Extinguishing Systems 2021 edition

Help ensure wet chemical fire extinguishing systems are ready to perform as intended by referencing the most current NFPA 17A requirements.

Fire suppression systems and equipment play a critical role in reducing loss and protecting lives in the event of an emergency. NFPA 17A, Standard for Wet Chemical Extinguishing Systems, provides requirements for designing, installing, operating, testing, and maintaining these systems through their life cycle.

Provisions focus on helping to improve the integrity and reliability of equipment designed to discharge wet chemicals from fixed nozzles and piping by means of expellant gas. Content is relevant to systems utilized in restaurants and institutional hoods, plenums, ducts, and related cooking appliances, covering everything from components to plans and acceptance testing and inspection, maintenance, and recharging.

The 2021 edition focuses on the information you need to more accurately and easily apply the standard in the field.

NFPA 17A is a must-have for anyone who purchases, designs, installs, tests, inspects, approves, lists, operates, or maintains pre-engineered wet chemical fire extinguishing equipment. Major revisions to the 2021 edition include:

  • Addition of a chapter addressing wet chemical extinguishing systems for mobile equipment
  • New Chapter 6 paralleling similar requirements in NFPA 17, Standard for Dry Chemical Extinguishing Systems, and addressing issues specific to wet chemical extinguishing systems (the application of the standard was previously limited to the protection of cooking equipment and its exhaust systems)
  • New provisions on the methodology of how to test for blocked piping
  • New criteria specifying that impairments be communicated in a timely manner
  • Modified language throughout the standard to correlate information between NFPA 96, Standard for Ventilation Control and Fire Protection of Commercial Cooking Operations, and NFPA 17A

Be prepared to safeguard people and property by staying up to date with the latest design considerations relevant to wet chemical extinguishing systems.
