Full-scale tests by NFPA Fire Protection Research Foundation
(NFPA 2008-2011) in storage occupancy with piled combustible storage.
Currently, there is ongoing research through the Fire Protection Research Foundation
to address this and related unanswered questions brought about by the introduction of aisle containment and the higher densities in today's data centers.
The grant's other collaborators are the Fire Protection Research Foundation
, the National Fire Protection Association and the state Department of Fire Services.
ACA has agreed to join the Fire Protection Research Foundation
(FPRF) as a principal sponsor of its study of the fire performance of ordinary, non-listed, and non-metallic intermediate bulk containers (IBC) with aqueous solutions of flammable and combustible liquids.
Funded by the Fire Protection Research Foundation
, the project was recommended by a National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) technical committee working on revisions to turnout time recommendations in the NFPA 1710 Standard-Standard for the Organization and Deployment of Fire Suppression Operations, Emergency Medical Operations and Special Operations to the Public by Career Fire Departments.
The Fire Protection Research Foundation
(www.nfpa.org/foundation) reacted to the issuance of this new standard by calling the recent meeting, where affected users, suppliers, and designers could plan development of a Solid Shelf Rack Storage Research Project.
In an attempt to provide better answers to this longstanding debate, the National Fire Protection Research Foundation
has assembled a consortium of insurance companies, property owners, fire protection equipment manufacturers and researchers to fund and conduct a research project to address it.
