NFPA 13 requires sprinklers to be installed to protect all areas of a building unless an area is specifically permitted to allow omission of sprinklers by a section of the standard. Section 8.15, Special Situations, provides guidance on which of these areas are permitted to have sprinklers when meeting certain criteria. Arguably one of the most utilized areas of this section is 184.108.40.206 which provides 18 subsections of arrangements for concealed spaces in which sprinklers are not required to be installed. This seminar is part 1 of 2 which will tackle issues involved with omitting sprinklers from these spaces and how to properly protect these spaces when you cannot omit sprinklers.
