NFPA® 14 Standard for the Installation of Standpipe and Hose Systems 2019 Edition

What's new ?

In the 2019 edition, the terminology has been made consistent throughout the document by changing the terms outlet(s) and hose outlet(s) to hose connection(s), as this is the more appropriate term.
The definitions for the terms hose connection and hose valve also have been revised to clarify what is meant by each term as used in the document.

certain conditions as well as inspecting and testing standpipe systems from a remote
A definition for open parking garage has been added along with a requirement that permits manual standpipes in open parking garages under a certain height.

The signage for pressure requirements is no longer required when the pressure is 150 psi or less, as NFPA 13E requires a standard pressure of 150 psi unless a sign indicates more pressure is required.

The maximum pressure permitted at any point in the system has been increased from 350 psi to 400 psi.

Subsection 7.8.1 has been revised to clarify that the required pressure is to be calculated at the outlet of the hose valve.

The hydraulic calculation procedures have been revised to clarify that additional standpipes should be calculated at the point of connection rather than at the topmost outlet.

Subsection 7.11.2 has been revised to delineate between a standpipe system main drain and individual standpipe drains.

Revisions have been made to the required number of fire department connections due to the ease with which a single connection can be compromised.

Anew Chapter 13 on maritime standpipe and hose systems has been added
