I have an open area around 70000m2 it will be used for containers storage for cargo transportation company. it is requested of me to review existing fire protection system design layout. There is around 15 fire hydrant around the site and class 1 FHC floor stand.


The design report showing that the designer taking 4 number of flowing hoses (4 x 100 GPM) plus fixed flow 750 GPM. as per my understanding from NFPA 14 (, 100 GPM is enough regardless of the number of hoses. for the fire hydrant, I cannot find any data about how to add its flow to the calculation. any help?
