2009 International Residential Code Fire Sprinkler Requirements

by Sean O'Hara on July 26, 2009

The 2009 International Residential Fire Code requires fire sprinklers for all townhouses built in the 2009 code. What is going to be more interesting is that it will require fire sprinklers in all single family homes and duplexes effective January 1, 2011.

Yes, you read that correctly, fire sprinklers in all new homes.

The Fire Sprinkler Coalition has a PDF of the changes.
