Working on a hospital project where there are currently fully recessed electric water coolers off 8 foot corridors.  The new water coolers need to be ADA compliant and with bottle filling capability.  According to NFPA 101, 2018 version, 18.2.3.4 (5) permits fixed furniture to encroach into the corridor as long as a 6 foot clearance is achieved.  Does this mean that a water cooler is allowed to encroach into the corridor as long as a 6 foot clearance is achieved?
