Waste/Linen Chute Sprinklers at Non-accessible Levels

I have a multi floor building where a chute passes through the lower levels to the Parkade levels below. There is no access on the loewer floors to the chute. Sprinkler are required at alternative floor levels, but if there is no alternate level floor access to the chute could these sprinkler be omitted below the last accessible level to the chute discharge room? If sprinkler are required then access to inspect the sprinklers would then need to be provided at the alternate levels which would be great if this could be avoided.
