The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has published new high-resolution digital catalogs to allow users to access information in a new interactive format. Items related to specific topics or codes and standards are presented together. The first two catalogs released center around NFPA 70E, "Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace" and NFPA 70, "National Electrical Code. "

"The new format was developed to augment NFPA's print and online catalog versions and give customers easy-to-use features that enhance the shopping experience while saving them valuable time, " says Andrea Hughes, marketing director at NFPA.

Flipping through the digital catalog pages is much like turning the pages of a paper catalog with the added benefits of viewing video previews on demand and getting to the shopping cart with one click on a product image. Customers are also able to print the full document or individual pages, forward to a friend, conduct advanced searches, e-mail a page or the entire document directly, and download the document as a pdf.

The digital catalogs are available on the Catalog Request page on the NFPA Web site.
