    FM Global Protection Criteria for Flammable/Combustible Liquid Storage and Handling Occupancies


    Location Details: IN-PERSON: San Marcos Activity Center, 501 E. Hopkins, San Marcos, TX

    This is the first of a series of Joint Meetings with the National Fire Sprinkler Association (NFSA)


    FM Global has long been a pioneer in the development of protection strategies for high-hazard commodities. FM Global's involvement in full-scale testing and participation in NFPA code committees has brought a lot of their research into the code. This is especially true with their extensive experience in the protection of occupancies that handle ignitable liquids.

    FM Global Data Sheet (FMDS) 7-29 provides designers and code officials with proven protection schemes for flammable and combustible liquids. These protection schemes address flashpoint, container size and type, as well as storage height and storage configurations. Protection strategies include water-based suppression, and low-expansion and high-expansion foam systems.

    This seminar will explain the structure of FMDS 7-29. The seminar will also teach attendees how to use FMDS 7-29 to properly identify ignitable liquid hazards and develop compliant protection. The presentation will be extremely helpful to Fire Protection Engineers, sprinkler system designers, Health and Safety professionals, and Fire Code Officials.
