We are designing a new/upgraded fire alarm system for a remodeled highrise (our local codes are 2012 IBC and 2018 NFPA 1) and there is a detached walk-in cooler for the restaurant, located relatively close to the main building (~3' away from the nearest exterior wall).
We received an RFI asking whether fire alarm devices are required in the coolers - good question(!). I'm not able to find anything specific for fire alarm devices in detached storage buildings.
Do you see fire alarm required for the detached cooler?
If anyone has any insight (or NFPA references that I've overlooked), it would be very much appreciated!
Thanks for a great community!
