Having trouble getting a good feel for fire sprinkler design criteria for compact, mobile storage shelves. These contain Class I-IV commodities. As I understand it, NFPA 13 only covers light hazard for compact shelving.
The metal shelves have a height of 8-feet, the ceiling height is 26-feet. The room is 3,000 sqft, and the shelves have a footprint within that space of 21 x 30 feet. Any help is appreciated.
