I'm a healthcare construction manager and I'm looking for some interpretation on the NFPA 241 regarding "Temporary Separation Walls" in healthcare construction.
126.96.36.199* Nonrated walls and opening protectives shall be permitted when an approved automatic sprinkler system is installed.
Annex A: Explanatory Material: A.188.8.131.52 Construction tarps would not be considered appropriate barriers or opening protectives.
How does NFPA define an "approved automatic sprinkler system"?
What does NFPA define as "Construction tarps"?
