Perspective Series Sponsored Webinar: Fire Protection of Sloped Combustible Attic Spaces



Presented by Kevin Maughan, Vice President of New Technology, Globe Fire Sprinkler

Thu, Apr 19, 2018 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT


Since Central Sprinkler introduced specific application sprinklers for the protection of sloped combustible attic spaces in the 1990s, little has changed with regard to protection of these spaces. In this webinar, Kevin Maughan will discuss Globe’s new protection method, and how this approach delivers superior fire protection while reducing hydraulic demand typically required for these spaces.
