Local contractor has a large open warehouse he wants to convert to storage units.  Code requires sprinklers or fire wall separation to reduce areas to max of 2500 sq. ft.

In this circumstance, the request is to allow use of steel conex boxes, of various sizes, inside the warehouse to negate the requirement for fire wall or sprinklers. 

No design details or ratings on boxes provided.

Has anyone allowed this use/ application inside a building? Does the code allow?

Thank you
