Question asked by lukenda on Mar 23, 2017

Concerning NFPA 13,  8.15.1.2.7.     Have wood truss floor & ceiling assembly 16" in a R2 building.  The building WILL be sprinklered.  Does the concealed space within the trusses need to be sprinklered?   Would it be able to filled with noncombustible insulation with a 2" air gap at the top of the space?    Thank you, Lawrence L.
