We are working on a project where the Architect is very particular about the placement of ceiling components, including sprinkler heads. The idea is to line up diffusers, lights, sprinkler heads, smoke detectors etc. The problem is, in several locations, their preferred location will place heads more than 15 feet apart. The obvious solution for him is to require the heads more than 15 feet apart to be extended coverage type.
From a practical standpoint, it doesn't make sense to scatter extended coverage heads throughout the project as it becomes an installation and maintenance (heads that down the road needing replacement may be replaced with standard coverage by mistake) nightmare.
Is there anything in the code preventing the installation of extended coverage and standard coverage heads of the same style (i.e. concealer style) in the same area?
