I have a client putting pods into storage in a sprinklered building. They are aluminum and fiberglass construction to hold household goods in storage; they are 8' x 8' x 12' dimension and he wishes to store them up to two high (16' total) in a warehouse with 22' ceiling height. Existing upright sprinklers are unobstructed. Since the general storage heieght in NFPA 13 only goes to 12' height as ordinary storage, can I use the figures for flow rate and area required for an extra hazard area (2000 sf and 0.30 gpm/sf) or is there another set of information for this purpose? Nothing seems to quite apply to this. Have already gone through NFPA 230 without finding anything. Rod Prosser, PE 585-305-2308 rodplepc@aol.com
