Fixed obstruction created by 2 conveyor belts side by side. Each conveyor belt is 36" in width separated by a 10" air space. Is this obstruction with 10" air space between the conveyor belts considered a fixed obstruction over 4 feet and therefore will require sprinklers under the obstruction as per 8.5.5.31.?
