Good day

 

I'm Mahesh from Thailand. I have a question about 2 building the attached by pipe bridge with service pathway(Catwalk) covered by a metal roof. (Please see the picture) And the problem is the small building can't install a sprinkler system and can't be protected by another fire protection system.

 

So. My question is how can I do for the small building?

 

1. Can I change the wall from an aluminum wall(Existing) to a fire-rated wall (1 or 2 hrs)?

And what NFPA or other code do I have to follow?

2. If I install a sprinkler system along with the service pathway to protect the fire across to the small building. Is it enough? 

And what NFPA or other code do I have to follow?

 

Thank you in advance
