Can I protect light hazard occupancy with standard response sprinklers? Please provide NFPA code clauses which allow installation of Standard Response sprinklers for light hazards.
NFPA #13 - 2016
22.214.171.124 gives a choice of QR, Residential, QR-CMSA, or EFSR for light hazard occupancies -
Standard response is only allowed for modifications to or replacement of individual sprinklers in light hazard occupancies - not for new work. It's been that way since the late 1990's if I remember correctly.
Should clarify - residential sprinklers can only be used in areas classified as residential.
use of QR-CMSA or ESFR would normally not be used in light hazard occupancies but would be acceptable in accordance with the quoted section.
