We are working on a new addition to an existing high school. Part of the addition is a new auditorium with a full stage. The stage will be the highest hazard and our calculation area, Ordinary 2. The stage will also have (2) 1-1/2" hose stations with fog nozzles, one on each end, north and south, to protect the stage. They will be supplied from the same fire sprinkler system protecting the stage.
Do we need to include the hose station(s) discharge in the hydraulic calculations?
If so, what would be the flow criteria from those hose connections, and is that separate from the outside hose allowance or part of it?
Thanks all for your input.
