NFPA 13 2016 Section 8.15.12 outlines requirements for Concealed Spaces Not Requiring Sprinkler Protection.
I am building a Type V-A (wood-framed) apartment complex.
Are sprinklers required in wood-framed drop ceilings (soffits), below exterior cantilever walkways?
Walkway construction is wood-framed, with insulation in the cavity, 5/8-inch gypsum below, and 2-1/4 inch hard rock concrete on crickets. The referenced assembly is GA FC 5420.
This space will have soffit vents along the entire length. The depth varies from 6-inches to 12-inches.
This project is under NFPA 13, thanks in advance.
