I have tried looking through Dubai CD but nothing in this regard.
No NFPA standard requires heat detectors in bathrooms.
its a weird requirement as we have had all our previous hospitals constructed with heat detectors in toilet/ bathroom. Thanks for the endorsement.
There may be some circumstances where an fire detection system is used for activation a fire control system. Heat detection may be the required fire detection. One example is the elevator control systems.
Search of NFPA 101, Life Safety Code:
22.214.171.124.1.2 - Where ambient conditions prohibit installation of a smoke detector, a heat detector shall be used.
126.96.36.199.1 - Elevator lobby, hoistway, and associated machine room smoke detectors used solely for elevator recall, and heat detectors used solely for elevator power shutdown, shall not be required to activate the building evacuation alarm if the power supply and installation wiring to such detectors are monitored by the building fire alarm system, and if the activation of such detectors initiates a supervisory signal at a constantly attended location.
Thanks Milton, i will definitely look into NFPA 101 tho so far i'm looking was looking into NFPA 99.
Be cautious before going forward. Total smoke detection (including bathing and toilet rooms) was common for activation of smoke control systems including smoke and/or fire barrier door releasing, unlocking doors, air distribution fan shout down, elevator recall, and smoke dampers. The Life Safety Code for years has allowed where ambient conditions prohibit installation of a smoke detector, a heat detector shall be used. The smoking, and high humidity/dew points would allow a heat detector to replace the smoke detector. Consult with the project engineer and architect as to where total smoke detection will be required.
Cheers, i will keep these points in mind and proceed with design. Thank you all .
