Sprinkler requirement in Public Toilets/Cubicles

Hi all,

 

Are sprinklers required within cubicles enclosed within full height partitions?

The cubicles are within public toilets of a Cinema premise.

 

I understand that they wouldn't be required for cubicles or toilets within a residential use building that are less than 55sq ft in area (NFPA 13R). But nowhere does it explicitly mention the requirement of the same for commercial use buildings.

 

If they are indeed required, is there anything mentioned clearly with the NFPA codes? I have checked the local codes (Saudi Arabian Fire Code) but with no luck.

 

Much appreciated.
