Requirment for external waste chute door

Question asked by dwilde on Jan 4, 2019

Per NFPA 82 8.3.5 a fire rated room is required for the chute intake door of an external compactor. Is there an exception to this requirement.


Our project is multiple mercantile tenant big box stores.The construction type is Type II non combustible and sprinklered.


We have multiple prototype plans from multiple national tenants and none of them show a rated room around their compactor door.
