What is NFPA 750?
NFPA 750: Document Scope

1.1* Scope. This standard contains the minimum requirements for the design, installation, maintenance, and testing of water mist fire protection systems. This standard does not provide definitive fire performance criteria, nor does it offer specific guidance on how to design a system to control, suppress, or extinguish a fire. Reliance is placed on the procurement and installation of listed water mist equipment or systems that have demonstrated performance in fire tests as part of a listing process. A.1.1 Other NFPA standards should be referenced for additional requirements relating to underground or lead-in connections to water mist systems from municipal or private water supplies.

This standard protects life and property from fire through the standardization of design, installation, maintenance, and testing requirements for water mist fire suppression systems.
