While it is a basic question, the code path is somewhat complex. When does an elevator require fire sprinkler protection?
Today I'm exploring the code requirements for elevator sprinkler protection under the International Building Code (IBC) and NFPA 13. Here's a free PDF cheatsheet for navigating these requirements. To download, just hover over the image and click print or export.
A special thanks to Philip Valdez who sent over the suggestion to put this one together. I hope you find it helpful!
