As an ex- facilities director of the hospital & now a state inspector; joint commission, life safety inspector, fire inspector & AHJ always asked us not to allowed any piping, wiring, ceiling support or HVAC ducting installed close, leaning, laying on top of fire sprinkler piping. Is there any reason why?, is it because of dissimilar metal, electrolysis. What is the code reference if any in NFPA code standard. Thank you
