I'm designing a school that has overhead doors that are 8'-0" x 7'-0" that run up above a 10'-0" or 10'-6" ceiling. The structure is non-combustible (steel beam & steel bar joist) and the walls go deck.
The opening for the door in the drop tile ceiling is an 8'-6" x 1'-0" opening.
This opening does not meet the 70% open ceiling requirement and I'm not sure it meets cloud ceiling requirements.
The plan reviewer is asking me to place upright sprinkler heads above the ceiling. My interpretation is that I don't need sprinklers above the ceiling.
Are sprinklers required above the ceiling?
Thank you in advance.
