We have a project that has carpet storage, per FM Global Sheet 8-30, Table 1. In that table, there are different K-Factor options with corresponding minimum pressures.
The existing sprinkler system has k-16.8 ESFR sprinklers.
My question is whether or not I can utilize the existing k-16.8 ESFR sprinklers and just calculate them to meet the requirements of FM Global?
In this case, it's showing a minimum required demand of 30 sprinklers at only 7 psi. Am I looking at this wrong?
Thanks in advance.
