Fire Protection Research Foundation report: "Sprinkler Protection Criteria for Consumer Fireworks Storage in Retail Facilities: Concept Test Plan"
Author: Aon Fire Protection Engineering Corporation
Date of issue: September 2011


In 1999, the scope of NFPA 1124 was expanded to include requirements for retail sale of consumer pyrotechnics and the Pyrotechnics Committee was charged with the development of a new chapter on permanent facilities (both fireworks only and mixed commodity facilities), and temporary stands, tents and other retail sales facilities. In 2007, the Foundation conducted a hazard assessment and gap analysis for the standard. An identified gap in information is sprinkler protection criteria for the storage of this commodity in retail facilities.

This report presents the results of a field survey of stored consumer fireworks in retail facilities; a hazard assessment based on that survey and other information, and a research plan to evaluate required sprinkler protection design criteria.
