I have to protect installations for explosive storage (fireworks, dynamite, etc). I need to know which standard will help me with density/ surface or protection with other type of sprinkler heads.
Is this in the USA??
If so what Building and Fire code and edition does this have to be designed to?
Plus seems like there is an abnormal mix of products
No it's in Canada. We are using the Canadian Building Code which refer to NFPA-13 2013.
But I don't find anything in NFPA-13 for explosives... I'm trying to get more info, but at least, I would like to know in which standard I have to refer for the design.
I checked with FM Global too, but no answer yet!
My best advice is hire a Fire Protection Engineer that has dealt with this before.
Like I said have not seen the products mixed before.
The actual true explosive storage bunkers I have been in did not have fire sprinklers.
I have seen the storage but have not been involved in watching one built.
See if any of this helps,,, did not see any mention of sprinklers
