NFPA 10 Travel Distenance

NFPA 10 Travel Distenance

NFPA 10 Travel Distenance

I am having some trouble with regard to the maximum distance between two fire extinguishers. The books talks about the travel distance of 75 feet, NFPA 10 2007
Ed. page 11 Table So if you were in a shell warehouse, How far can they be? I am thinking that you can't have them 150 feet apart, but if you are standing in the middle of 150 feet (at 75 feet)you have 75 feet travel distance in between each other. Is this wrong?

RE: NFPA 10 Travel Distenance

The 75 feet is travel distance.  You need to take aisles into account and I can easily envision 100 feet apart.
