The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is a non-profit organization that develops and publishes codes and standards for fire protection and life safety. In-depth, NFPA 13 is the standard for the installation of sprinkler systems, and NFPA 96 is the standard for ventilation control and fire protection in commercial cooking operations. At Voltas, we are familiar with both, and are proud to offer a Sprinkler and Mechanical department dedicated to the services aligned with these vital codes – public safety is our main goal at Voltas, and we work tirelessly to ensure maximum safety through all of our drawings and services.
NFPA 13 is a standard that covers sprinkler system design, installation, and maintenance (inspections). It includes guidelines for system layout, water supply, and the types of sprinklers to be used, as well as requirements for testing, inspection, and maintenance. This standard is widely used in North America and other regions as the minimum standard for the design and installation of sprinkler systems.

NFPA 96, on the other hand, is a standard that provides guidelines for the ventilation control and fire protection of commercial kitchen operations. It covers the design, installation, and maintenance of systems used to control the accumulation of smoke, heat, and grease in commercial kitchens. This standard includes requirements for exhaust hoods, ducts, and filters, as well as guidelines for fire suppression systems.
In summary, the NFPA is a non-profit organization that develops and publishes codes and standards for fire protection and life safety; NFPA 13 is a standard that covers the design, installation, and maintenance of automatic sprinkler systems; and NFPA 96 is a standard that provides guidelines for the ventilation control and fire protection of commercial cooking operations.

It was a remarkable experience with ‘Voltas Engineering’ where the team guided me very well throughout the process. They have keen knowledge and experience in their field.
Ever since I spoke to Voltas team, I got full support from them; they have helped me a lot. Because of the tremendous service provided by them, I have referred many of my friends to them. I will be referring more in the future for sure.
