Hello Everyone,

We have an open area about 40x40 in which we store Gas/diesel/petrol. The area is open from 4 ends and just covered from the top(shed installed). We are suggested to install foam based sprinkler system. What NFPA Code applies here? NFPA 13 or NFPA 16? or some other? hoping for the reply.
Please share some solution that we should install manual or automatic foam sprinkler system. (I guess automatic won't work here since it is open area)
