For a building (ordinary hazard, grp 1) that has a lot of sf of attached canopies outside, is the area covered by the canopies calculated separately? That is, 1500 sf of canopies or 1500 sf of indoor pendant heads. NFPA 13 does not address this. The local fire Chief ducked my question and will not answer.
I am thinking that this requires 2 sets of calculations - one for outdoor heads (dry pendant sidewalls) and one for regular upright heads.
Anyone ever deal with this?
