Is it required to provide heat detectors instead of smoke detectors at kitchen area?


Annex A of NfPA 72, does not recommend the use of smoke detector. But there is a distance allowed that the smoke detector is to be placed which is 3m to 6.1m.


Shall the provision of heat detector comply the total coverage specified at Chapter 17?
