For more than 150 years the United States has been engaged in suppressing building fires with the use of water conducted through Fire Sprinkler Piping Systems. Throughout the years fire suppression systems have evolved and improved through the ingenuity of a number of companies manufacturing and installing fire sprinkler systems. The design, use and regulation of fire sprinkler systems have historically been controlled by trade associations, such as the National Fire Protection Association, (NFPA).
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is a United States trade association that creates and maintains private, copyrighted, standards and codes for the use and adoption by government agencies.
The NFPA was formed in 1896 by a group of insurance companies to standardize the new and growing market of fire sprinkler systems. The scope of the NFPA's influence grew from sprinklers and fire extinguishers to include building electrical systems, which has spread into nearly all aspects of building design and construction, and has become the model code standard recognized throughout the United States today.
