Exterior Ceiling Threshold?

Question asked by jlc on May 2, 2019

A. Vehicles that are temporarily parked are not considered
storage. Areas located at drive-in bank windows or portecocheres
at hotels and motels normally do not require sprinklers
where there is no occupancy above, where the area is entirely
constructed of noncombustible or limited-combustible materials
or fire retardant–treated lumber, and where the area is not the
only means of egress. However, areas under exterior ceilings
where the building is sprinklered should be protected due to the
occupancy above. 


Is there a height limitation for areas under exterior ceilings where there is occupancy above? I am working on a project where the height of the ceiling is 35'-2" couldn't find anything in NFPA-13.
