Introduction

This report provides information on a fire test program recently completed by the Foundation to investigate antifreeze solutions supplied through spray sprinklers. It follows previous research focused on residential sprinkler systems. The current research was developed to investigate the potential for ignition of antifreeze supplied through non-residential, spray sprinklers. The scope of the project does not include investigating the effectiveness of the antifreeze sprays in controlling a fire condition.
