Is it allowed to install the Foam bladder tank inside the room they protect?

As per NFPA-16 5.9 :Equipment items, such as storage tanks and proportioners for foam concentrates; pumps for water and foam concentrates; and control valves for water, foam concentrates, and foam solution, shall be located as near as possible to the hazard or hazards they protect but shall not be exposed to a fire in a manner that is likely to impair system performance .

However, It is not clear that it is allowed to locate the bladder tank inside the room they protect unlike as per NFPA-2001 for clean agent systems.4.1.3.2* Storage containers shall be permitted to be located within or outside the hazard or hazards they protect. fixed foam system
