What is the requirement for standpipes on the top level of a fully-sprinklered, open parking garage?
On the covered levels that are sprinklered, the hose travel distance is allowed to be 200 feet based on NFPA 14-2013 Section 220.127.116.11. For levels that are not sprinklered (the top level is open to the sky), the same NFPA section states the hose travel distance is 150 feet.
So, on a 6 level parking deck I've got standpipes located such that 200 foot hose travel distance is accomplished on the covered/sprinklered levels. What happens when I get to the top/open level?
