NFPA 130 clause, states that "An automatic sprinkler protection system shall be provided

in areas of stations used for concessions, in storage areas, in trash rooms, and in the steel truss area of all escalators and other similar areas with combustible loadings, except trainways."


Can you please confirm the definition/meaning of the word "Concession" within the context of the above clause.


Could the concourse level in a station be considered as an area used for concessions? Does this mean that the concourse area would need to be fully protected by automatic sprinklers system?
