We recently installed sprinklers in a very elaborate office building.


The office building has a wood deck that protrudes from the building. There is no occupant access under the crawl space of the deck and under the deck is gravel (non-combustible material).


The state building inspector is questioning if we need to have sprinklers under the deck. We sited NFPA 13 2007 (the code currently recognized in Wisconsin) for not installing sprinklers under the deck. The inspector asked that we get an interpretation on this part of the code.


Could you confirm that we can use for this application?#
