s and have never had this question come up. NFPA 13 has an exception to allow for a remote FDC or an FDC tied in to a header, but 14 doesn't seem to have this same exception. I should note we have combination standpipes. Standpipes will be manual wet. John Irwin Sprinkler Construction Manager

Partially sprinklered buildings

as nearly 1/3 of the floor space being designated as “unit owner storage area”. I believe there is no way to avoid putting sprinklers in this building. But I want to be certain before I tell my client this. Anyone? John Irwin ___ Sprinklerforum

Yes. That’s an option as well. I have a pump so I am not terribly worried about the demand. However the difference in price between a residential pendent and something like a Tyco EC-5 is over $10. And I’m looking at over 1,000 of these buggers. John Irwin DynaFire Inc. *From

I’m pretty close to 20x20 in the most remote two rooms. From there by rooms drop to 12x12 and then closet size rooms. But having the ability to get 10’ off the walls in these units saves a TON of sprinklers. John Irwin DynaFire Inc. *From:* Sprinklerforum [mailto: sprinklerforum-boun

Abuse of 13D?

Capture Ok someone help me make an argument that this is not a 13D installation. This is the garage level of a two family home. However, the units are stacked on top of each other. Both units share a single lead-in (also shared with domestic). 13D 2010 is pretty clear that garages are not

I understand the inspection is not required, but the sprinkler doesn't know it's in a house and not a highrise. If asked I would reccomend they get tested as they would in an NFPA 13 occupancy. ⁣John Irwin  DynaFire Inc.  Tampa Fire Sprinkler Division  727-282-9243  This email was sent from
