Hello all, two questions:
1) Can the rules of a beam obstruction also be used for a 4 ft (1.2 m) obstruction? Or does section 220.127.116.11.1 prohibit that arrangement?
18.104.22.168.1* Sprinklers shall be installed under fixed obstructions over 4 ft (1.2 m) in width.
2) Can the rules of a beam obstruction also be used for a 30 in (750 mm) against wall obstruction? The standard says sprinklers "22.214.171.124.2*... shall be arranged to comply with one of the following arrangements"
Or does an obstruction against a wall have to comply with Figure 126.96.36.199.2(b) and then has to have a sprinkler underneath?
