15-0423 v2.X Fire Suprpession Systems Sprinkler Heads


Question:

We've contacted a number of manufacturers regarding Red List compliant sprinkler heads; however, it appears that commercial sprinkler heads all contain Red List ingredients, namely lead. Because fire suppression is not only a building code requirement, but also an issue of life safety, we are requesting an exception to the Red List requirement for sprinkler heads.

Answer:

Sprinkler heads are allowed to contain low levels of lead. Please refer to I11-E17 Plumbing and I11-E18 Commercial Water Systems in the May 2013 v2.1 Materials Petal Handbook (MPH p 9).
