I want to do my design of fire system in a medical office and like to know which hazard a can use? #
I would be glad to help you answer your question, but I need some more information. Since fire protection systems are broad in scope:
Where you designing an automatic sprinkler system or a fire alarm system or both?
Is the hazard of contents related to either of the systems?
Am I right to presume the primary use and occupancy of the building will be business with no outpatient surgery?
I am designing fire sprinkler system ,
it is a big dental office, that include exam room, sterilization , dentist , panoramic x-ray , x-ray room and small kitchen
For the design, it appears light hazard for the design for the principal use as dental office. If there are general storage areas or mechanical rooms (boilers) requiring ordinary hazard group 1 occupancy protection, consult with Section 12.7.2 (see below) for systems with multiple hazard classifications. A dental office is very similar to hospital and office use and conditions.
Everyone viewing this may have some other thoughts.
Excerpt from 2016 NFPA 13.
The Appendix A of 2016 NFPA 13 has some guidance for choosing the hazard occupancies.
Let me know if this helps.
