This study addresses the questions: How fire safe are common green products? Is there an unstated and/or poorly understood correlation between green design and fire safety? If so, is there an integrated approach that will provide for both green design and fire safety? This project focuses on the intersection of these three important components of green home design: the building and fire codes, green materials and their fire properties and the research on the environmental impact of residential sprinklers. The study takes a systems engineering approach and demonstrates the need to incorporate residential fire sprinklers as a part of green building design.
