I'm working on a new ammunition manufacturing facility. NFPA 13 (2019 edition) doesn't seem to provide much guidance for this type of building.
Cartoned small arms and shotgun ammo is classified as a Class IV commodity, but it doesn't address the manufacturing.
Also, Ammunition Components (bulk primers and powder) is in the list of items that's specifically not addressed by Section 20.4.
NFPA 495 seems like the appropriate standard for other items regarding explosives, but it doesn't provide fire sprinkler guidance.
Does anyone know where to find the appropriate fire sprinkler design criteria for this type of facility?
Thanks in advance.
