Fire sprinkler requirements differ by structure type: commerical structures, residential structures other than one and two family dwellings, and residential dwellings. All systems can be designed to meet higher standards.
Systems are typically designed and installed by a C-16 licensed fire protection contractor. All copies of the plans shall be wet-stamped and signed by the licensed designer.
- Commercial structures need to comply with NFPA 13.
- Residential structures other than one and two family dwellings need to comply with NFPA 13R and local standards.
- Residential dwellings need to comply with NFPA 13D and RVFD Standard 401D.
