Sprinkler types for warehouse storage with a ceiling exceeding 32'-0". Storage height of 7'-0" .Standard Classes of Commodities Standard Plastic.

Can I use standard type sprinkler heads with an increase in in the K Factor? I know FM Global addresses the type of heads and k factors but I didn't see anything in NFPA-13. There is some writings in various paragraphs and sections that are hinting in that  direction but noting concrete, like "Yes you can use a Standard Response Head with a K Factor of 11.2, 4gpm @ 2000sq.ft?
