Automatic sprinkler systems are an effective method of providing fire protection and are used in many applications in which metal plate connected wood trusses are used. This session will review the three types of automatic sprinkler systems specified in the building codes and what needs to be considered when designing trusses to be used with a sprinkler system.

Jim Vogt, SBCA's director of technical services, regularly dives into the technical details of component design to educate and assist manufacturers on engineering issues.
