Sprinklers in Scissor Stairs

In a noncombustible construction stair shaft, NFPA 13, 2013, section 8.15.3.2.2 states that "where noncombustible stair shafts are divided by walls or doors, sprinklers shall be provided on each side of the separation". 

In the case of scissor stairs, are sprinklers required at each floor on both sides of the landing or sprinklers required at the top and bottom of each stair shaft only?

 

Thank you
