Introduction to Guideline Specifications


The LPS Guideline Specifications provide general direction to Architects and other Consultants for
the design and specification of District facilities and facility improvements. They also identify for
prospective vendors and contractors products and equipment pre-approved for conformance to
District standards and expectations. They are intended to promote consistent quality and reasonable
continuity in products, materials, systems and workmanship for all District facilities; they are not
intended to limit creative design or functional problem-solving. The Guidelines are not sufficiently
complete to serve as buildable technical specifications, but any proposed deviation from them will
require consultation with and acceptance by the LPS Operations and Maintenance Department.
Consultants also will be responsible for informing the District of any conflict found between the
Guidelines and current codes, standards or best practices.

Introduction to Model Specifications & Technology Standards


The LPS Model Specifications provide more detailed definition of District construction standards and
procedures for consultants and contractors, based upon cumulative District experience with facility
design, maintenance and operations. Each section is intended to serve as a model for buildable
technical specifications, typically requiring customization to address conditions, needs and
applications for specific projects at particular facilities through detailed collaboration between
consultants and LPS managers, technicians and users. Identification of technical requirements or
prohibitions, pre-approved manufacturers, and preferred products or models is intended to optimize
long-term value to the District and its facilities, balancing innovation and competitive first-cost with
manageable standardization and sustainable life-cycle costing.
The LPS Technology Standards provide definitive goals, design and installation mandates and
detailed specifications for District facilities infrastructure and devices supporting Information
Technology, Domestic and Emergency Communications, Smoke/Fire Detection and Alarm, and
Building Access and Security. The Standards identify professional certifications for design
engineers, manufacturer certifications for installers, and relevant experience required for both.
Proprietary platforms are identified for each major system, along with pre-approved providers of
mutually compatible component devices. Deviation from any provision in these Standards is
prohibited except for unique circumstances and only following exhaustive review and sign-off by the
LPS Operations and Maintenance Department, Information and Technology Services and/or Security
and Emergency Planning, as appropriate.

A.

This Section specifies automatic sprinkler systems for buildings and structures. Materials
and equipment specified in this Section include:
Pipe, fittings, valves and specialties.
Sprinklers and accessories.

B.

Products furnished but not installed include sprinkler head cabinet with spare sprinkler
heads. Furnish to the Owner's maintenance personnel.

C.

The work of this section includes engineering by the Contractor. The Contractor shall act
as Engineer of record for all fire protection work.

EDIT NOTE: Use the following paragraph for remodels and expansion projects.
D.

1.2

1.3

Where the fire protection system work is an extension of the existing fire protection system,
provide all modifications to the existing system as required to complete the new work. Provide
hydraulic calculations and shop drawings where required by the extent of the work or by the
authority having jurisdiction.

DEFINITIONS:
A.

Pipe sizes used in this Specification are Nominal Pipe Size (NPS).

B.

Other definitions for fire protection systems are listed in NFPA Standards 13, 13R, 14, 20
and 24.

C.

Working plans as used in this Section means those documents (including drawings and
calculations) prepared pursuant to the requirements contained in NFPA 13 and 14 for
obtaining approval of the Authority Having Jurisdiction.

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION:
A.

Provide a complete fire sprinkler system for the entire building (including, but not limited to,
electrical rooms, mechanical penthouses and accessible sections of air handling units,)
except designated areas as shown on the drawings which will not require fire sprinkler
coverage will be specifically noted with "No A/S".

B.

Fire protection system is a "wet-pipe" system employing automatic sprinklers attached to a


piping system containing water and connected to a water supply so that water discharges
immediately from sprinklers opened by fire.

C.

Fire protection system is a "dry-pipe" system employing automatic sprinklers attached to a


piping system containing air or nitrogen under pressure, the release of which (as from the
opening of a sprinkler) permits the water pressure to open a valve known as a dry-pipe valve.
The water then flows into the piping system and out the opened sprinkler.

D.

Single Interlocked Preaction System: The single interlocked preaction system requires operation
of the detection system to trip the deluge valve and fill the system with water. Water will then be
discharged on the fire when the sprinklers fuse. If the sprinkler piping or sprinkler is broken, the
valve will not open. If the detection system operates due to fire, damage, or malfunction, the
valve will open but the water will be contained in the sprinkler piping. If the detection system

LPSCM

LPS MODEL SPECIFICATIONS

December 2014

does not operate, the valve will not open. Provide manual release as required by NFPA-13.
Detection system and wiring to preaction or fire alarm panel by Division 28.
1.

1.4

E.

Double Interlocked Preaction System: The double interlocked preaction system utilizes a
detector system and pressurized air in the sprinkler piping. This system utilizes the deluge
valve and is so arranged that the valve will open only when both pressure reduced in the
sprinkler piping and the detection system operates. If the detection system operates due to
fire, damage, or malfunction, the valve will not open. If the sprinkler piping is damaged or
sprinkler is broken or fused, the valve will not open. The operation of both a sprinkler and a
detector (or release) is required before the valve will open allowing water to enter the
system piping. The system shall be supervised. Provide manual release as required by
NFPA-13. Detection system and wiring to preaction panel or fire alarm panel by Division 28.

F.

Fire protection system is a "deluge" system employing open sprinklers attached to a piping
system connected to a water supply through a valve that is opened by the operation of a fire
detection system installed in the same areas as the sprinklers. When this valve opens
water flows into the piping system and discharges from all attached sprinklers.

G.

Fire protection system is a "Class III, Standpipe and Hose" system which is an arrangement of
piping, valves, hose connections and allied equipment.
