A 9 storey building with a one basement car parking. The fire pump room is located in the basement car parking and has got a jockey pump, an electrical pump and a diesel pump
As per the NFPA 20, section 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 – fire pump room needs to be sprinklered.
I understand that the fire pump room has to be fire protected with 2 hrs/1hrs fire rated walls.
But apart from that should the fire pump room located at the basement of the building be sprinklered. Have I understood the 220.127.116.11 and 4 correctly that the fire pump room has to be sprinklered
Could you please clarify - as per the NFPA standard is it a requirement that this specific fire pump room has to be sprinklered
Could you please explain the table 18.104.22.168.2 of NFPA 20 2016 edition as i am a bit confused in this topic
