Fire pump room requirements

Fire pump room requirements

Fire pump room requirements

Does NFPA 20 require that the pump room be dedicated exclusively to the fire pump equipment? Due to space limitations, we wanted to have a pump room that would contain the hot water and chilled water pumps along with the fire pump. The room is 2 hour rated and will be sprinkled.



RE: Fire pump room requirements

where are you sticking this??? high rise, warehouse, one story office building????????

RE: Fire pump room requirements

NFPA 20, 2007 A5. As long as the equipment does not pose a fire hazard, i.e. a boiler, it is OK.
