Are sprinklers required in bathroom stalls that have walls that go up to ceiling? I know I need sprinklers to cover the common areas but I would think the stalls would be considered not combustible compartments. Please advise.
Yes required, unless talking about a dwelling unit, than maybe
8.1* Basic Requirements.
8.1.1* The requirements for spacing, location, and position of sprinklers shall be based on the following principles:
The first rule of NFPA 13 (i.e. the very first thing NFPA 13 says after the preamble and definitions) is that sprinklers are required in all areas of a building unless specifically exempted. Unless you're talking about dwelling units, there is no specific exemption for bathroom stalls.
You can always ask the authority having jurisdiction for an exception to any NFPA requirement, however I'm not sure that's a good idea as some people use bathroom stalls to smoke cigarettes.
