Use of NFPA 80A for transformer protection

Question asked by pothier.celine on Feb 5, 2019

Good day,


We are looking into protecting a building from a transformer (power generation facility) that is located within 6 meters from the building. The equipment surrounding the transformer is preventing us from installing a firewall that would protect the building from a transformer fire and a sprinkler system that would mitigate this risk. The building wall is made from a 2-hour construction layout and the openings would be relocated away from the facing wall to assure that there is no risk related to these.


My question is ; would you suggest protecting the building using the NFPA 80A guidelines? If so, what would be the density usage for this application? 0.25GPM/sq.ft.



Thank you for your support.
