I'm a plan reviewer for a project that's coming into our area. We have a local gym/special amusement facility that has several foam pit areas.
What is an appropriate sprinkler design criteria for a foam pit?
The plans call for a 5-ft platform, which leads us to believe the pit is 5-ft or less in depth, but we're not sure about the building on the platform of other foam pads; so there's a chance this depth could exceed 5-ft when it's all said and done and measured with a tape.
Best I can relate to for this type of situation is in NFPA 13 2022 edition, Section 184.108.40.206.2.4, which references Table 220.127.116.11.1.1. Also, I've referenced IFC 3203.7.1 for classification.
Is there any other information that you can point me to for guidance?
If so, it would be greatly appreciated.
