Effective July 1st , 2016 all new fire alarm designs in NC must comply with NFPA 72 2013.
As you know, we have been using NFPA 72 2007 for many years. This change leapfrogs us past the significant changes in 72-2010 to the 2013 code.
These changes impact the entire community; End-Users, Contractors, Inspectors, Plan Review, and Engineering.
