Does anyone have experience with a mamava (mobile lactation room/pod) being placed in a commercial business occupancy?
The square footage is approximately 50 sqft. It is composed of only Class A rated materials (flame spread index).
From a practical perspective it does not make sense to me to drop a sprinkler in. However, I'm hard-pressed finding an exemption from code (NFPA 13 or 101) to not sprinkler the space since it's inhabitable and not a bathroom or closet (which I know they are exceptions for sprinklering based on size).
