We have a passenger elevator that is a traction, machine room-less (MRL).
Under NFPA 13, 2013 Edition, Section 126.96.36.199, a 'sprinkler shall not be required for enclosed, non-combustible elevator shafts that do not contain combustible hydraulic fluids.'
NFPA 72, 2013 Edition, Section 21.3.6 states that 'smoke detectors shall not be installed in unsprinklered hoistways unless they are installed to activate the elevator hoistway smoke relief equipment.'
I believe these would apply to this elevator.
Does the elevator only require lobby smoke detectors, including first floor for recall and second floor for alternate recall?
Is a smoke detector actually required within the shaft?
This is my first MRL elevator and I want to make sure we cover everything that's required.
I would appreciate you views on this, thank you!
