An warehouse facility is seeking to store cartoned Level 3 aerosol products on pallets. If the storage height is 10 feet in height with a 23 foot ceiling, what minimum k-factor must be provided for the ceiling level sprinklers protecting this area?
Solution | Posted 09/08/20
c. K-14.0, per FPH p6-264 Table 6.16.3 as referenced from NFPA 30B, Code for Manufacture and Storage of Aerosol Products.
** Note: This question snuck through - FPH and NFPA 30B are no longer required references for the exam. Sorry for the discrepancy.
