Detection in High Air Flow Telecom Environments - a new Foundation project
The Foundation has initiated a new project on this topic with collaboration and support from FM Global Research and the detection and telecom industries. The goal of the project is the validation and application of modeling tools to predict detector actuation in these highly complex environments. The outcome will inform the activities of the NFPA Technical Committees responsible for NFPA Standards 75 and 76.
