Maximum Travel Distance in Boiler House / Hall

Question asked by gabrielepapini on Jan 18, 2018

Life Safety in Power generation.

NFPA 101 states that:

 

Power-Generation Buildings.

Buildings of non-combustible construction used exclusively for the enclosure of steam generators, steam turbines, gas turbines, heat recovery generators, and flue gas treatment equipment shall be permitted to have a maximum travel distance of 400 ft (122 m), where all special hazards are protected by approved automatic suppression systems

 

Somebody knows why the Boiler house, as an enclosure of the Boiler equipment, was excluded from this exemption?
