My son has purchased a condo, (prior apt conversion). They removed the closet doors in the living room related to an air flow vent return on one side when the central air was added.
There is a sprinkler in the center of the former closet. I was told I can not enclose the sprinkler in a closet when I wanted to build the closet doors 3/4 of the way, (leaving 35 inches for the air flow vent). So, now the closet would be only 40" wide. Do you know in MN if I can enclose the sprinkler? Thank you.

Not enough information to reply with anything more than just a guess really. My guess would be the that adding the doors would result in inadequate coverage. Even using 13D, the closet with a 40-inch linear dimension will require AS. I'd like to know if there is a lintel separating the "closet" and the room at large. If, so the "closet" head would protect the closet and there would need to be protection in the greater room. Was the intent in the design to have the head in the "closet" protecting the entire room?

8.3.3 Sprinklers shall not be required per NFPA 13D 2013 Edition.
