We are installing an Emergency Responder Radio Coverage system in our hotel facility.  A 1-hr rated enclosure has been specified to house the equipment.  Basically a 6' x 6' room constructed from metal studs and drywall with a rated door and hollow metal frame.  The only equipment in the enclosure is the ERRC equipment.  No other materials are in the room.  The enclosure is within a fully sprinklered space.  The enclosure has a smoke detector interfaced to the main fire alarm panel for the facility.  7-story bldg. Occupancy class Mixed R1/A3/B.  Construction type 2001 CBC Type II FR.  Sprinkler system NFPA 13.

 

QUESTION IS, DOES THE ENCLOSURE ALSO REQUIRE A SPRINKLER HEAD?
