Trade Ups in the IBC
Non-Member: $100.00Your price
This course addresses the Trade Up in the International Building Codes. The 1973 America Burning report encouraged the U.S. building codes to allow more increased active fire protection systems to reduce passive fire protection systems. This becomes the birth of the tradeoff, or when lives and properties are saved, it is better referred to as the “trade up”. Since then, the NFSA and many allies have been involved in the model code arena to promote the attributes of fire sprinkler systems. This program will highlight some of the long serving trade ups in the model codes, the financial benefits of trade ups for building designers and building owners, and tools to convince customers and communities that fire sprinkler systems and trade ups save lives, property and money which benefit everyone that uses current codes.
